GET TO KNOW ME.
YAHU is a multi-medium artist. As a South Shore Chicago native, and student of the performing arts,
he became interested in the spray can graffiti, break-beat dancing, and the rhythmic and poetic musical
expression of the urban back drop. In an effort to further his interests he turned his studies to the fine
and commercial arts, such as art history, music theory, graphic design, visual communication, and digital
ELIYAHU has been in the process of “building a show”, and is now putting it on. With music being the
primary medium, he tunes his expression to target specific demographics. He is a hip-hop/rap artist,
using genre as a canvas, experience as the pallet, and words to brush over topics and reveal, a portrait
of the social landscape. These are more than mere songs; these compositions are odes to performance
As ELIYAHU continues to develop and grow as an artist and person, networking within the community
has become essential to his furthering the Hip-hop Culture. As a local community activist and
entrepreneur, he’s currently an event planner and grass roots organizer, with intent to influence social
change through the arts.
