Davadi was born and raised in New Orleans and is of Nicaraguan descent. After Hurricane Katrina ravaged his home city, his family relocated to Miami. When he was 15 or 16, Davadi heard "Crank That" by Soulja Boy and was caught by how accessible it seemed for him to make a hit. After his initial inspiration, Davadi took it upon himself to learn everything dealing with music production, dropping out of high school and honing his craft with production programs such as Fruity Loops. He chose to produce under the name Edsclusive, a combination of his first name Edward and the word "exclusive" as a way to express the unique sound he creates.

Davadi eventually linked up with super-producers Cool & Dre through a mutual friend. Davadi became encapsulating in Miami's exclusive network of urban hitmakers. One artist he worked with extensively at first was Kent Jones, whom Davadi helped transition from being a producer to an artist. Davadi's first major feature was on Curren$y's 2015 album Pilot Talk III where he produced the songs “Rhymes like Weight” and “560SL".
