Sleep on Malik Elijah. The Maryland-born, Boston-based Hip-Hop artist wants you to. But when you eventually wake up, you’ll realize you’ve been sleeping on a versatile artist who makes heads nod to boom bap rhythms, entrances the dance floor through bouncy beats, and causes the stank faces of listeners with cold lyrics. Malik Elijah will catch your attention, just as he’s caught the attention of listeners with over 1.4M streams since the start of 2023, and outlets like Lyrical Lemonade, Daily Chiefers, This Song Is Sick, Okayplayer, and more. From the URL, where his Spotify monthly listeners peaked at 170K in spring of 2023, to the IRL, where he’s played 35+ shows since Jan '23 (including a 5-stop East Coast tour in June) Malik Elijah’s rise in music is waking people up.

"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." - Sheesh Media
