After bubbling under in the Detroit underground during the late nineties, Elzhi began working with future local luminaries such as Jay Dee (aka J Dilla) and Dwele. Following his impressive performance on Jay Dee’s “Come And Get It” track from the “Welcome 2 Detroit” album, he was selected as the new third member of Slum Village, later shining on smash singles “Tainted (feat. Dwele)” and “Selfish (feat. Kanye West).” The three albums that Elzhi recorded as a member of the group sold a total of more than 300,000 units, and further established Slum Village as one of the most respected modern hip hop groups.

With years of recording and worldwide touring under his belt as a member of Slum Village, Elzhi is finally ready to make his mark as a solo artist. Even without an official solo release, hip hop enthusiasts across the globe consider him to be one of the most skilled emcees in the entire scene.

“The Preface” features guest production and rhyming from Royce Da 5’9″, Black Milk, T3 (Slum Village), and more, but Elzhi willingly and capably grabs the spotlight.

“Elzhi is one of the only emcees that is keeping me on my toes right now. I hear verses, and they make me go back to the lab.” Phonte (Little Brother)

“Elzhi’s my favorite emcee out of Detroit, and his versatility with subject matter and flows is unparalleled. He’s definitely got a gift.” Guilty Simpson
