Malik Elijah


Photo by Andrew Regis

At the core of his music, Malik Elijah is a Hip-Hop artist. When you take a step back, numerous layers of creative expression that push the boundaries of the genre are revealed. Rather than ride the waves created by others, he pulls inspiration from his peers and predecessors to create his own current. Online, Malik's music resonated with over 660K Spotify listeners in 2023, catching the attention of platforms like Daily Chiefers and Lyrical Lemonade, alongside curators Annabelle Kline and Saving Connie. Offline, with over 40 shows since 2022, including supporting acts like Freddie Gibbs, EARTHGANG, and Ben Reilly, and two DIY tours, Malik boasts a robust live performance resume. Stamped by nominations for Best Hip-Hop Artist and Best EP/Album at the 2023 Boston Music Awards, Malik has left an indelible mark in Massachusetts, his current base. Throughout all of his work, Malik Elijah has demonstrated time and time again that he is one of the most versatile artists in Hip-Hop, and there isn’t a levee that can hold what is in store for Malik Elijah in 2024.

"Malik Elijah is vastly overlooked and let’s be honest, who the **** even knows why. The music is some of the best of this new era of lyricists and we’ve established that this man has a lethal pen."
Daily Chiefers
"Malik Elijah has a wildly infectious energy that draws you to him. The rapper it tapped in with some of the best underground beat-makers, which effectively elevates his sound and really sets him apart from everyone else in the scene."
This Song Is Sick
"Brick by brick, committing to the slow build and growing something that will stand long-term is ultimately what’s most important and that’s something that I’ve seen Malik do time and time again over the past few years."
Lyrical Lemonade
"While 'HYDROPONICS' is my favorite track off of SONIT, you will want to be sure to dive into the full project – Malik Elijah is ready to take over."
