Elzhi - The Preface

With years of recording and worldwide touring under his belt as a member of Slum Village, Elzhi finally brings us his debut album The Preface, produced almost entirely by fellow Detroit native Black Milk. Guest appearances by Royce Da 5’9”, T3 (Slum Village), Guilty Simpson, Phat Kat, and more of the finest talent from Detroit only add to what will certainly be one of the most noteworthy Hip Hop releases of 2008.
While this release took longer than many of his fans had wished to see the light of day, look for the follow up The Feed to hit shelves in 2009.
