Sage Gabriel Carlos Atreyu Elsesser[3] (born January 31, 1997), also known as Navy Blue, is a regular-footed American skateboarder, rapper, record producer, visual artist, and model.[4][5][6]

Elsesser has been sponsored by several skater fashion brands including Converse and Supreme, as well as becoming a professional skater in 2014 through skater collective and clothing store Fucking Awesome. Aside from skating and music, he is also a model for various clothing brands and an artist, most notably handling the art direction for Earl Sweatshirt's album I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside in 2015.[7]

In 2015, Elsesser began releasing several EPs under his Navy Blue stage name, in addition to rapping with and producing for the likes of Earl Sweatshirt, MIKE and Armand Hammer, among many others. On February 4, 2020, he founded independent record label Freedom Sounds with the release of his debut studio album Àdá Irin. Elsesser has since followed-up with two studio albums; Song of Sage: Post Panic! (2020) and Navy’s Reprise (2021).
