Eligh of Living Legends | Interview
From Los Angeles, CA, Eligh is an emcee, producer, and member of the Living Legends collective. He was an important contributor to the development of the west coast underground hip hop scene in the 90s. His inspiration for hip hop came from the film Beat Street and LL Cool J’s single, “I’m Bad”. In high school, Eligh co-founded a hip hop duo, Boogalu Badboys, with Scarub. When they crossed paths with Murs, the three became 3 Melancholy Gypsys (3MG). Eligh moved from Los Angeles to the Bay Area, where he met The Grouch, which led to 3MG’s incorporation into the Living Legends. Eligh released almost a dozen albums within a decade, as well as providing beats for artists outside the Legends camp, including Company Flow, Pigeon John, and John Cena. Eligh was also involved in a number of Living Legends offshoots, including The Righteous Brothers Project and The Grouch & Eligh. In 2010, Eligh released his 12th and best selling album, Grey Crow.
