Sauce, born Elbolameek Andrews Sr. was raised in some of the most nefarious neighborhoods of West Palm Beach, Florida. He began his career at the humble age of 11 when a group of his peers asked him to perform at his junior high school's Halloween party. He gladly accepted the invitation. He began his journey to become a successful emcee by honing his skills battling the most well known rappers in his area. Although successful as a battle MC, A career in hip-hop was not at the top of the list for Sauce. As a high school student he was one of the most sought after high school football prospects. Although a career in football was inevitable for Sauce, fate stepped in and Sauce's gridiron dreams came to a halt leading him back to his early passions for music.
The next few years found Sauce recording and performing to underground acclaim all over his native Florida. With aspirations of commercial success, Sauce set out for new horizons and ended up in South Carolina. His original recordings were made under the moniker "Sy", and his first recording "Hey Lil Daddy" caught the ear of a local radio personality who had confused the album's title (Hot Sauce) with his name. The success of "Hey Lil Daddy" gave Sauce the buzz he needed. Sauce is a very suiting name considering that he is quite the chef in the kitchen and often cooks for members of his inner-circle when on the road.
In 2006 Sauce hooked up with local label Lucky 12 Records. They had many local and national contacts and were able to push Sauce's music to the masses. Sauce's style was immediately embraced by all who heard it. Sauce describes his music as "street, soulful, and not your ordinary style." He accounts his style of music to his influences, Poison Clan, Trick Daddy, UGK, and Outkast, to name a few. He says "listeners can relate to my music because it's everyday life, the obstacles everyone experiences at some point in life." He wants his listeners to know "it's okay to dream, but putting those dreams into action is what will get you there."
At the 2006 Ozone Awards, ironically in Florida, Sauce was introduced to E1 Music (formally Koch Records) radio representative, Gazelle "MCI" Alexander. Seeing the commercial appeal in Sauce's music he secured a recording contract for Sauce with E1 Music (formally KOCH Records).
Sauce has been celebrated as one of the most sought after up and coming artists in the southeastern region. Singles such as "Datz What It Is", "Thousand Dollar Fit", and "Pop and Roll", just to name a few have made his lyrical style widespread and well-known.
Sauce has continued to promote his music and was introduced to Tony "Chubbz" Marcus, CEO of Southeast Music and Entertainment Summit Inc., at the SMES Music Summit in Myrtle Beach, S.C. Chubbz took an interest in Sauce's style of music and agreed to sign him to his production company, SMES Music Group, based in the Carolinas.
Sauce knows his work was just beginning; and has spent several months perfecting his craft through numerous recording sessions and live performances. Under the direction of Chubbz, SMES Music Group has re-released the club single "Pop and Roll" produced by Mo Beats and the street banger, "Froze" produced by Jiggy Jay. Sauce attributes his accomplishments to: Persistence, Perseverance, Motivation, and Determination. He states that his music is about "taking chances and remembering his fans are most important." He continues to work hard at his music and looks forward to future success.
