Real Name:
Elliot Gleave
Profile:
Elliot John Gleave (born 20 June 1982), better known by his stage name Example, is an English singer and rapper signed to Data Records. His name arose due to his initials being E.G., which is an abbreviation of the Latin phrase exempli gratia ("for example").

Elliot Gleave was born at a West London hospital in Hammersmith, the elder of two children, and attended All Saints Primary School in Fulham. He later went on to attend ADT College (now Ashcroft Technology Academy) in Wandsworth. Gleave has claimed in interviews that the main reason he started rapping was due to his introduction to hip-hop through albums by Wu-Tang Clan and Snoop Dogg – the latter's album purchased primarily for "the cool cover art".

is it just me or does this guy have one of them faces that should be punched? for some reason I channel-hop and hear his pop-trance-rap/nonsense diva vocals and it makes me really irritated. really really irritated.
What a bell-end.
p.s I had a flick thru the videos of what I'm assuming is his earlier 'proper rap' or something, and that's shit too 'first we made a wheel, then we made a car...' seriously. what a bell-end.
