So apparently, 2011 is the year that “urban legend”  releases finally see the light of day. Greatest Story Never Told got released. Lasers finally dropped. Some people are even delusional enough to think that Act II or Detox might finally be liberated by year’s end (ROFL).

Another project that has forever been  on the backburner was Elzhi’s eLmatic – a tribute to Nas’ heralded debut. The wait will finally be over this Tuesday, when eLmatic finally makes its way onto hard drives and iPod’s everywhere (sn- why are we still calling them “tapes”?).  So I thought it would be a good idea to put together an Elzhi compilation for those who may not be as familiar with his work as they should be.   Too bad I’m a lazy bastard who has no motivation to put a decent compilation together . Lucky for me, the internet is a beautiful thing, and the homies over at RealHipHopHead already had a thorough collection of Elzhi’s best stuff (if you’re wondering, yes – I am talking about THAT real hip hop head – Pause?)

Anyway, you can download the compilation here, and be sure to check out the RealHipHopHead blog for a fuck load of great hip-hop.

    I’ll definitely give this a listen or two, but I’m more interested in new/proper Elzhi shit.

  2. Not feeling Elmatic at all. Sorry but I cringed hearing him rhyme over classics such as The World Is Yours, using the exact rhyme patterns Nas did. And his live band jacking the beats from Illmatic but saying \”produced by\” was not wavy.

  3. I am looking forward to hearing eLmatic, even tho I think the tribute steez is kinda corny.,

    Elzhi is one of those cats with crazy talent.. Make the next illmatic if u got talent like that.. Don’t keep re-hashing old shit.. Nobody cares that nas changed your life.

    Any project trying to walk in the shadow of Illmatic is almost destined to fail.

    Ask Fashawn.

    Early eLZhi >>>>

    he still nice, but his lyrics were more visceral than the conceptional approach he takes now days

    ^ that’s cool, I gave you those verses for free. Thats just the prologue we’re barely scratching the surface b. I need to bring yall into my world foreal foreal.

  19. The game is meant to be sold not told said:

    its all in the name

    That fat lil nigga Pedro came to me in tears b… “Yo they tied my grandmamma up. I came home and my grandfather was beaten half dead” he said. I asked him did he know what the fuck happened to that last shipment, he wiped his tears and said “nah, it never came, it was never on the fucking plane.” I believed him, cause I never known him to be know fucking liar. But getting Leroy to believe him was another story. I need to buy some time.. find out what the fuck was going on. Never met the Jamaican connect, but I had a sneaking supiscion dude in Jamaica was on some fuck shit. He prolly was trying to beat Leroy for the front money. I had to explain to the nigga Leroy that Pedro was straight up, and it had to be the Jamaican connect…

    This game is ILL.

    if you read this in a raspy voice, with a NY accent.. Over some smooth gambino rap instrumental, it sounds like the intro to the next album from “the firm”

  22. hoots 2.0 said:

    …him say him put it pon di focking plane. Is how that nigga Leroy responded when I tried explain, how that nigga Pedro aint on that bullshit. He aint wanna hear it and even looked at me sideways. I felt that heat, I know what it is to loose your shipment- sometimes you entire re-up is riding on it. Everybody is guilty until shit is resolved. So I didnt take it no way when he cut his eye at me and gave me that look like he got his gun on… But as you niggas know in this game all we fucking got is trust, our word. Once that’s gone its fucking murder city.

    Our relationship was strained and I couldn’t give Pedro that comfort he needed, so he packed the family up and I aint hear from that nigga since. Now I got no weed, still got that white in the streets but that’s finna run out…And for all I know got money on my head. Word.

  23. Spot on Tron lol esp over the intro to OB4CL2

    ^ shit is authentic b… Ask any real hustler dope dealer pusher whatever. He can decipher and let it be known these words are scripture. True story.

    little know fact: most people say in a key is a 1000 grams. Its actually 1006.

    cats don’t know what is like facing a conspiracy fed charge… some niggas is telling, lawyer wont even touch the case unless you give him a hunnid stacks upfront. Shits wild b. And that morning, the day of court everything is silent as your whole life plays out right in front of you. From the time you get in the shower its like a replay of the last 10 yrs. Your gut start to twist from anxiety… How you normally casually just stop over your kids toy, well now you are fixated on it and all the memories it holds. Every little tiny thing is exaggerated to an extent. Because you don’t know which way its going, and your facing some real time.
