Just dropping in to wake ya'll up.
So browsing through the Hip Hop Spot...I figured: this forum needs me. I ain't even being arrogant or nothing like that, but a lot of you do need me. So...lemme start you off by educating ya'll on this cat named Elzhi.
Elzhi (b. Jason Powers) is a rapper and a member of the Detroit group Slum Village, which also consists of rapper T3. Elzhi was introduced to fans through his appearance on the late J Dilla's Welcome 2 Detroit album, on the cut "Come Get It". Soon afterwards, when Dilla left to pursue a solo career, Elzhi was anointed to replace him (with approval from Dilla).
Possessing a rapid-fire delivery and a constantly shifting rhythmic nuance, Elzhi has arguably grown to become the most lyrically celebrated member of the group, and has already released a mixtape album, Witness My Growth, containing previously unreleased material dating as far back as 1997, and featuring production from the likes of J Dilla, Waajeed, Karriem Riggins and The Alchemist. As of now, Elzhi has no plans to record a proper solo album, stating in interviews that the group comes first.
Some songs from his mixtape:

Keep On: http://www.libidosounds.com/mp3/elzh...sounds.com.mp3
Lets Talk: http://www.libidosounds.com/mp3/elzhi-lets_talk.mp3
And he actually is coming out with a solo album, we just don't know the release date yet.
If you don't pay attention to anything in this thread, at least click this, proof that he's dope as fuck.
There you have it. I'm guessing (unless wucorp changed since i was gone) I'm mostly gonna get sarcastic replies stating how ya'll don't need me...but I know you do, so I'll probably be back in a couple of weeks or so with another reminder.
WHAT'S GOING ON?
