Elzhi's Preface, Postface
if you're not from Detroit you may not know who I'm talking about. You may not even know how to pronounce dude's name. It's pronounced like this, L's Eye. He spent time spitting with Slum Village before he decided to branch out on his own and head for the spotlight alone.
The new album, The Preface is one of those albums that is absolutely underground and an indie... but has the potential to make it to the top. It can compete with every mainstream album that has been released this year and in prior years. It will outlast many albums that you probably think are classics from this year. If you haven't heard the album go cop it.
With tracks like Motown 25 Feat. Royce Da 5'9 you get to witness Elzhi and Royce go back and forth until Elzhi eventually run's a circle around Royce. Then there is the Fire Rmx featuring a ton of talent from the corners of Detroit. You get a taste of Black Milk, unlawful skill from Guilty Simpson, Fatt Father, Danny Brown, and Fat Ray. Save Ya and What I Write are more bangers. I could literally write every track down as a banger from this album, but I'll let you decide for yourself. The album is easily a 10 stars out of 10... 5 mic from The Source... a A+.
So if you still haven't went out and copped this, then something must be wrong with your feet.
