The future rapper started writing poetry in elementary school,
and then began composing actual hip-hop lyrics in late
elementary/early middle school. He became even more serious
as a high-schooler, where he began rhyming in classrooms and
lunchrooms, and on laptops and video via Twitter. His
commitment was sealed when his grandmother, Angie Smith,
who had raised him, passed away in 2011, and G5 ELZ realized
he was entirely on his own. It was then that he became writing,
recording, and releasing the series of mixtapes that have won
him high regard.
