About Elle Maxwell: As a native Southeast Washington, DC this young and gorgeous, but hard-core emcee has crept into the airwaves and is dulcifying ears with hip hop tunes that make you nod along. Elle Maxwell, formerly known as Lola Maxwell, is a twenty-something year old Hip Hop artist who is nothing short of “dope.” Her lyrical skills and chameleon-like tendencies keeps listeners intrigued and guessing at what she’s going to come up with next.
Looking back to MC Lyte and Queen Latifah, being a female rapper, especially with something intriguing and effective to spit, was not appreciated. So why does Elle think she can place her feet into the musically raunchy atmosphere, so-called ruled by men? Because she is fresh, experienced and ready to check the rhyme, something many other lyricists fail to do.
“I chose to be an emcee because I like writing and performing. If I wasn’t writing, I’d be dancing. I just love the freedom of expression and the reactions from people when they see or hear my work. Plus, I just feel like the hip-hop community and industry needs me! I wouldn’t say I’m done with the present music community, but unsatisfied.
