The long awaited, anticipated ELZHI (of Slum Village) project is slated to drop in 10 days (May 10th). With Royce Da 5’9 playing the role of AZ, as well as appearances by Mint Conditionâ€™s Stokely and Amp Fiddler on keys, it’sÂ hard to say whether it is really a “mixtape” or an LP in disguise. It will be a free download on ELZHI.com, but I have a feeling it will only be a “mixtape” in name, due to sample clearance and copyright issues. This is eLZHi’s first official release since his debut The Preface (2008) and according to the press release, is a labor of love, that just took years to get finished due to touring and recording with Slum Village.
* More videos &Â MP3 downloads of “Detroit State of Mind” and “Verbal Intercourse” after the jump. (more…)
