ImageIn the late-nineties, eLZhi made a name for himself by moving his way up through the ranks of Detroit's underground scene and teaming up with Slum Village for his first big taste of success. He has since been making the rounds, working with local Detroit luminaries such as J Dilla, Waajeed of Platinum Pied Pipers, and Dwele, in addition to a well-received solo tour of Europe during his early years in the game.

eLZhi and a crew of D-town guest stars bring the heat on "Fire" off eZhi's highly acclaimed solo effort The Preface. The track showcases talent from the likes of Black Milk, Guilty Simpson, Fatt Father, Danny Brown and Fat Ray, in addition to the man himself. eLZhi lights up yet another track with effortlessly explosive flow. He says, "Limitless-I'm / Not even the sky's the limit to I / when we spit with adrenaline times ten / from the beginning until the rhyme end / it's no stoppin' / every line's mind bogglin'".

Hip-hop enthusiasts across the globe consider eLZhi to be one of the most skilled emcees in the entire scene, and bloggers and critics have been trumpeting this sentiment since the release of the last Slum Village album in 2005. With the release of The Preface, eLZhi looks to cement his name amongst the greatest emcees in the game. The 16-track album, produced almost entirely by rising star Black Milk, features guest appearances by a who's who of the Detroit hip-hop scene. Royce Da 5'9", T3 (Slum Village), Guilty Simpson, Phat Kat, and more add to what many have predicted will be one of the most noteworthy hip-hop releases of 2008. The Preface is in stores now via Fat Beats Records.
