Sicknesses have plagued the life of Sir Eliot Ness Baldwin. If it wasn’t him, it’s his family. After losing his mother to Lupus when he was only six months old, Sir Baldwin has spent his life facing medical battles. He also lost two of his aunts from his mother’s side to the same disease.
In 2010, the rap artist was also then diagnosed with Chronic Systolic and Diastolic Congestive Heart Failure. He’s been plagued by many other illnesses as well. But above all the problems and challenges, Sir Baldwin has risen as an artist with a message to share.
Thirty-seven-year-old Sir Baldwin hails from South Acres Houston, Texas, a town that, in the words of the rapper, is most known for its chopped and screwed approach to hip hop music. The artist has been working on his material and has developed several mixtapes. His songs speak about his journey and struggle he has had to face in a little over three decades of experience.
Growing up, Sir Baldwin spent most of his childhood with his grandfather, who was a strong influence on the artist. It was from him that Eliot learned how to work hard for what he wanted. Sir Baldwin picked up an entrepreneurial sense from his father figure and learned how to get through life. Also, a strong influence on Sir Baldwin was his grandmother. The grandparents raised Sir Baldwin all his life. The rapper has chosen to look at his health and family issues not as a curse, but a chance to understand and better himself when it comes to health and life.

The string of events lead to his rise, and the rapper has made the most of every opportunity.
Eliot Ness is also the younger brother of popular female rap artist Lady of Rage from the group The Dogg Pound. His sister’s music also served as an inspiration for the artist and pushed him to make music that would add to the family portfolio.
In the middle of the Coronavirus crisis, Sir Baldwin was able to release an album entitled “I’m Me Part 1,” which dropped last March 17, 2020. He also released his newest single “Mary Jane,” featuring artists Luenell, Devin The Dude, Yung Redd, and Tony Mack last June 8. The song’s producer was Bruce Bang.
