Overcoming Adversity Early On
Elijah Beckham, better known as Edubb302, is an exceptionally skilled and groundbreaking artist to look out for. Edubb302 is originally from Wilmington, a small town in Delaware. He started music at a very young age of 14 years old and hasn’t looked back since. Elijah also faced a ton of adversity and pressure having to provide for his family and himself to make sure there was food on the table. His dedication to provide led him to being incarcerated, but this did not hold Edubb302 back. During his time at the state correctional institution his musical talents and popularity prospered. Motivated and inspired more than ever, he vowed to impact the world through his music.
After spending 57 months incarcerated Edubb302 dropped his first few singles on Spotify, “Real Talk” and “The Message.” For a successful career in the music industry, he devoted himself to hard work, determination, and passion.

I plan on releasing the song sometime in late January.”
