No … I have not been sleepin on this one. It just took me a while to post it … something you will probably not understand when you press play. But hey … better late then never.
Taken from Elzhi’s Elmatic … “Memory Lane”!!
What can I say … the dopest visual reminder for those of you who haven’t downloaded the Elmatic yet. By the way you can cop that when you click here…
You all had this one coming and if you don’t have it by now. You are probably one of the last hiphoploverz on the planet to download one of the most anticipated mixtapes in 2011. I Could have hooked y’all up with this dopeness much earlier. It just took me a while to find an audio stream (DATpiff) to back up my story. The story on this mixtape is … protect your neck cause there is going to be some heavy headnodding.
Usually I keep stuff like this for myself, at least until the full mixtape the following track is taken from hits the net. This time however I can’t wait till the 5th of May.
So whats on May 5th?! ….That is the day Elzhi’s freeload “ELmatic” will be available on www.elzhi.com. The project is a tribute to Nas’ 1994 release “Illmatic” and everything on the project is produced and played live by Will Sessions. All I have to say is that if the other tracks sound half as good as “Halftime” (stream below)… I already know which mixtape is going to be on repeat this summer.
