Carrying on the Dilla legacy is arguably the best lyricist out right now and that is none other than Elzhi. I've been a fan since I first heard him on J Dilla's "Welcome To Detroit" album in 2001 I believe. From then on i've been hooked and trying to get my hands on anything Elzhi blessed. Recently for reasons yet unknown, he's left the group Slum Village. I mean seriously take a listen to these verses and put them up against anyone right now that you think is hot. Drake, J Cole, whoever. They are not touching Elzhi on the mic. So here's a little contribution from myself to give Elzhi his due.
