Journal Of K1ng Eljay: The Introduction is officially the first in a new trilogy of music from Eljay himself. Formerly (semi) known for his previous beattapes and silly parodies, Eljay's dropped the jokes (not entirely) in order to introduce himself to a broader audience.

With most of the production handled by himself (with a few assists from #TheREDEFINED favorite Melvin Burch) and being light on the features, Eljay hopes that he's created something that impacts each listener, even in the imperfections that comes with creating from scratch. Enjoy the music...


released 18 May 2014

All tracks produced by K1ng Eljay (except "Expectations", "Frame Trap", and "Title Track", which are produced by Melvin Burch)
