About Element HipHop

South Pasadena, CA

Born December 16, 1986, in Los Angeles, California, ELEMENT (Jeremiah Sojourney) is the consummate rapper. As the son of an avid R&B singer, ELEMENT grew up in a household that influenced and nurtured his passion for music and rapping. His father, Oliver Johnson, would frequently play the piano and sing at home. Although ELEMENT received constant exposure to music, life at home was not so easy. ELEMENT’s mother was very abusive towards him. To escape the physical and psychological abuse, ELEMENT turned to reading to escape the tortured reality of his youth. He also wrote poetry as a therapeutic method of coping with his pain. This tradition of exploring his psyche through poetry continues today. By the age of 15, ELEMENT was well on his way to perfecting his rap style by writing, listening to music, and rapping incessantly. By 2001, ELEMENT was making his presence known in Los Angeles’s hip-hop underground scene by free styling and battling at every event he could attend. That year, he also entered the World Rap Championships (WRC) with Franco, an emcee from Northern California. At the WRC, ELEMENT competed against some of the best emcees in the world.
