Would you believe it to be possible to have someone remake Illmatic and have it be INCREDIBLE?
That’s exactly what Elzhi has done with ELmatic. Let’s be clear. Illmatic is a one of a kind classic. BUT, Elzhi has written new rhymes for the songs and producer Will Sessions has updated the tracks, often with live instruments, and it is shockingly good (especially since I was fully prepared to hate…). Props to them for having the guts to do this and even more for pulling it off. Listen to the whole mixtape and download below.
