The Sunset Strip

You’ve no doubt heard about the drug dealing or gang member pasts of the biggest names in Hip Hop music – whether their tales of violent street life and crime are 100% authentic or mostly made up for the street cred hype, it’s rarely been portrayed as something to overcome or turn away from, yet that is exactly what California-based Hip Hop artist Elliott Niezel has done.
His rocky past and violent, destructive ways aren’t a point of pride or a source of bragging for Niezel. No, his past was sad and messed up. His life was going nowhere until he did something about it, and he wants others to do what he has done – to rise above it and live a better life.

#BeachTrap is the culmination of styles. The meeting point where two people combine minds to create a sound different from anything you’d normally hear from a west coast artist/producer combo. It consist of art trap and part groove hop.


Beach Trap can be defined as lyrical trap music. It has hard hitting beats and real down to earth lyrical content. Street Poetry. Its mellow but edgy. Simple but intricate. It embodies the lifestyle of Elliott Niezel and gives you a sneak peak at whats to come with his music. Beach Trap is a style, a uniquely catered taste pallet in which the listener can become absorbed in West Coast Wisdom and in turn be transported to Santa Barbara fully there, if not for a few minutes without actually being there.

The EP was created shortly after I approached producer Black Osiris about doing some records together in June this year. I liked his style, he liked mine. We marinated. Then shortly after #beachtrap came together rather quick and from the point of conception to the end result was around 2 months. Written, recorded, mixed, mastered and all. Finished product. As always I passed it over to my engineer RawHouseBeats in Germany and he did that german engineering to bring it to fruition. I decided to hit Urban-Nique up and see if she would be interested in hosting the project which she so kindly accepted. It then became the official A3C Festival EP and hard copies will be given away during the festival as well as flyers. Thought it only fitting to put it together like that since Urban-Nique is based in ATL along with the A3C Festival. We could conned in person and promote each others work. Blessed. -Elliott Niezel
