Elliot Yorker was born in Jersey City, NJ on 02-12-1986 and also goes by a few other names as well. Some may call him GrimEY or DJ GrimEY. And others may call him Smilez. That's how he came up with the name G' Smilez. He first started DJ'ing in 2001 after falling in love with blend style mixtapes after hearing local DJs: DX, Nelly Nell, 007, E-Double, Big Tyme, Whimpy B and many more. While in high school he created a DJ team that goes by the name 201 Most Wanted which included some of the hottest up and coming DJs in Jersey City. He's been featured on multiple mixtapes and worked with many up and coming DJs of his era. His grind later caught the attention of two very popular local party promoters, Mr. Focus & Shakim, both from Money Train Ent.. After the break up of Money Train Ent, Mr. Focus (now founder of Get Focused Ent.) took G' Smilez under the wing and taught him the ropes of promoting parties which allowed him to further promote his graphic designs skills on the flyers for each event. After taking a short break from the DJ scene he later created G' Smilez Productions after focusing all of his attention to his true passion, making beats. Being that he knew how to play instruments made it easier for him to make beats. It came natural to him. He's also the son of Ellsworth Anderson from the group Rhyze. So music has been in his blood from day 1. You could almost always find him doing something related to music. But his hunger doesn't stop there! G' Smilez is a self taught freelance graphic designer & promoter. When Myspace was the most popular social network, he was the guy to go to if you wanted a hot page. That's when he branded his slogan tag, WhatsRealGrimEY. Some people ask what do WhatsRealGrimEY mean. It's his favorite slogan! What's Real is his way of saying, "What's Good/Wussup".
Basically, he's just a very talented guy. He can play a few instruments such as the Sax, Keyboard/Piano and Drums. Even if you gave him a table with an acoustic mic hooked up to it, he will play that too. He says that he enjoy making beats. It's a way for him to vent and it's his way of telling a story. His goals is to be able to make your spine shiver when you listen to one of his productions. Even if you don't like his style in beat making, you'll love his hunger for music. 99.99% of all his beats are fully original made from scratch and a thought. He have his own sound, and you can't compare him to anyone else because he doesn't sound like anyone other then himself. He's in his own genre.
