Brody Merlot – formerly known as the Da 3rd Element, is an Ohio bred emcee and songwriter. In 2003, he escaped the poor economic climate of North East Ohio and relocated to Cincinnati to attend Xavier University. There, he gained the respect of the underground hip hop community and earned a name for himself (Da 3rd Element). Influenced by Camron, Fabolous, and Joe Budden he released several projects with collaborations from Tanya Morgan, Eternia, and Deion.
Merlot creates pertinent material for a growing audience nailing live performance engagements with Talib Kweli, Little Brother, and Stalley.
