He became a prolific radio personality on DC101 for five years, educating, guiding, and entertaining the DMV on street crimes, police issues, and society. He gained international notoriety on Social media for various content, from legal and educational videos to dance videos to comedic content and now to motivational content. He is a character in every city he lands. He is all about positivity and self-growth.

Street Lawyer Services became the premier cannabis brand and gifting shop in the town. He decided he could make it a vibe. The city converged around SLS as it was the hub for the hottest budtenders and highest-quality cannabis and even turned into the underground Celebrity pit stop in DC. Street Lawyer services became about Unity, community, art, fashion, dance, performance, tolerance, acceptance, and fun in the DMV. You never know what you’ll get when you walk into Street Lawyer Services on H St. NE.

This release signifies not just a project drop for the rising star, but a journey into a musical landscape that is bound to captivate and resonate.

Her vocal range spans from mezzo-soprano to bass, delivering fully belted cadences that effortlessly traverse the realms of R&B, Hip-hop, and Pop. Dynamic creativity is the cornerstone of her delivery.

The EP’s influence is grounded in deeply personal connections. Nana Elan attributes her love for singing to her grandpa, a mentor who nurtured her vocal talents. Rihanna, with her fusion of fashion and music, ignited Nana Elan’s passion at an early age, cementing her path toward artistic greatness.

Each record exudes dominance, high standards, and a mix of irresistible appeal and raw energy.”
