Elzhi Keeps It So Real His Songs Are Like Journal Entries. (Audio)
Elzhi has built a formidable career off of just one solo album—and that was more than seven years ago. The onetime Slum Village member does this through making every verse count, independent of where those bars live.
“P.S.” is the latest check-in. Themed around a Matrix red-pill vs. blue-pill scenario, El’ looks at his life and career with strong reflection. In the song, the Detroit, Michigan MC looks at his own restlessness, his uncompromising content, and the class of MCs he puts himself in, regardless of what the sales or mainstream conversation may say. This is intelligent listening at just over two minutes, from one of Hip-Hop’s unwavering sources of lyrical light.
