    Elzhi – The 730 Interview

    Elzhi - The 730 Interview

    From his smooth, razor-sharp verses with Slum Village, Elzhi quickly established himself as an MC in the realest sense (and think about how many MCs can be smooth and razor-sharp at the same time – I’ll wait). Whether he’s dropping game to a lady or reminding you why his wit and wordplay is in another realm, Elzhi’s stayed Elzhi as he transitioned away from Slum to establish himself as a solo artist. When he reinvented Nas’s classic Illmatic as Elmatic, Elzhi proved to still be on the innovative tip, as he not only flipped songs that would be frightening to most, but he added a live band just to show off a little.

    In 2016, Elzhi is still that same dude. Bars for days with that smooth-like-butter flow, but the artistic growth continues. With Lead Poison, an album that unfortunately took on a double-meaning once the Flint water crisis hit, Elzhi is an open book. From his battles with depression to his love life, nothing is off limits in what is his most personal album to date. I caught up with the Detroit legend to talk about the album, mental health and hip-hop, and much more.

    Video: Phat Kat – “All Madden” Feat. Elzhi & Guilty Simpson

    Screen-Shot-2014-11-30-at-2.23.37-PM

    True hardcore sh*t for your lazy Sunday afternoon right here. Detroit hip-hop links up for the “All Madden” music video, which has Phat Kat, Elzhi, and Guilty Simpson taking the fantasy world of say Grand Theft Auto into the real world. The visuals for Phat Kat’s “All Madden” has guns and violence as all three spit bars relating to brute force and animalistic savagery. For example, Elzhi goes in with this gem: “You can’t see me when I blackout even with night vision.” Damn! Peep the visuals for Phat Kat’s “All Madden” featuring Elzhi and Guilty Simpson after the jump. The cut is taken off of Kat’s Rededication to the Sucka album which is out now.
