His mother and father were separated so he lived with his mother and grandmother. He lived in a black neighborhood and they would look after each other.

He has engineered and produced R&B, Hip-Hop, Rock & Roll, and Reggae; but what he is known for is for his contribution to what's called the "golden age" of hip-hop during the 1980s to the early 1990s. At the age of two Elai knew how to play congas, he understood how music affects people and has worked with artists such as Run DMC, Russell Simmons, Kurtis Blow and many others. In 2012 he got his degree in sociology, and is now moving into historical lectures on the music business and hip-hop.
