Elzhi - Elmatic

May 27th, 2011

One of the most talented “newer” generation MCs, Elzhi, formerly from Slum Village, has been looking for his own solo sound for while. The search continues with the remake album of the legendary Illmatic in honor of Nas. Some of these tracks seem to stand out from other streetstyles and covers, REALLY. The live band Will Sessions recreated the sound in a real nice way to let Elzhi shine on the mic.

Slum Village - Scheming feat. J Dilla, Posdnuos & Phife

August 17th, 2010

I don’t know exactly what’s going on behind the scenes, but Slum Village did drop an album called “Villa Manifesto” a couple of weeks ago. And J Dilla is on several tracks.

It’s been said that the head of the label and Elzhi are not getting along. Whatever it is, I hope they get back together… But it’s already sad that half (?) of Elzhi’s (who’s a really, really dope MC) verses got dropped from the album.

Here’s the Spotify link for the album. My man Hatsolo picked the following track as well.

Slum Village - Actin' Normal

August 18th, 2009

Slum Village is back and the new album is on its way! There was supposed to be some reunion things with Baatin, but the tragical news hit in the end of July. R.I.P. Baatin.

Baatin shines on the new video, while Elzhi and T3 enjoy in the background.

Slept On pt. 2 - Slum Village (post Dilla)

November 30th, 2008

Moving on from New York to Detroit, Motor Town, known from its soul legacy. One can still hear the influence of Berry Gordy’s Golden Age on the music created by the veteran group Slum Village.

In the spirit of A Tribe Called Quest, Slum Village has managed to stay true to the sound in spite of the changes. To my honest opinion, people have been sleeping on SV after Dilla (R.I.P.) went solo in 2002.

For example the strong “Slum Village” album (2005) seemed to remain in the shadows of the similar sound of Little Brother.
