Biography

What the Hell is a Young Man Pit?!?
Metaphorically speaking: a grave that will bark at you.

Acronymically speaking: “Put In Tune”.

Musically speaking: An artist that represents the change in music as we know yesterday, right now and will know in the future.

If you’re one of those people that think that sounds overly extravagant, consider his past as his birth and upbringing was none other than the cradle of Hip-Hop: The Bronx, New York. A young Elliot Green was not only exposed to the purest essence of the origins of the culture, it was practically genetic given the fact that both parents were actually local Bronx rap artists. Although his mother did not wish for him the entanglement of the Hip-Hop industry, he still started rapping at the early age of 7. The “Boogie-Down” borough of The Bronx is where he began developing his ability to improvise freestyles, write conceptual songs, and battle any MC in sight…which sometimes included the man in the mirror.

Around High School is when Pit ended up moving to an almost completely opposite environment than the New York project building lifestyle he was accustomed to—the suburbs of Palm Coast in Florida: “The Dirty South” as we know it. Life in the southern suburbs directly contrasted his early inner-city life in New York, but instead of letting these two influential forces contradict, he evolved—much like the present trend in Hip-Hop in which music is undeniably moving it’s focus to the suburbs. “Living in the south helped me expand to not just being a rapper, but being a musician”, Pit says. The transition also proved to be perfect timing as Hip-Hop started seeing signs of the ascent of the Dirty South right around this period in Pit’s adolescence in Florida.
