There is less than a week left to the month of February. Whether it’s been the frigid cold (for some), some depressing headlines, or just the new year’s lull, it’s a complicated month. Elzhi writes from the moment in “February.” The Detroit, Michigan veteran leads into his true Preface follow-up, Lead Poison—which is said to include this cut.

With a moving 14KT-produced track, El’ gets to work sifting through the perplexities of the shortest month of the year, and some of the things going on in his mind, and those around him. For an MC so stellar at concept, this stream of consciousness moment (that still has obvious theme) is really potent. Listen close, and you’ll hear the former Slum Village member reference how February gave the world J Dilla, and then also took him away.
