elzhi3 I was very excited yesterday, I got news about Black Milk and then I found this gem over at 2Dopeboyz. This is a snippet from the track “The Genesis” which will be on Elzhi’s upcoming project Ellmatic. This project will feature El flowing over Nas classics from Illmatic. Let me tell you, from what I hear, this project is going to be ridiculous. Elzhi is one of the best emcees in the game right now, and this just proves it. He is taking the task of recreating a Hip-Hop classic, and if there is anyone in the game right now that can do it, it’s most definitely him.

In the short 42 seconds of this snippet he absolutely demolishes the beat, “…You barely throw jabs with your vocabulary/My punchlines knock niggas the fuck out/Still earn block figgas’, cop triggas’ and duck droughts”. This project is going to be amazing and I can’t wait until he puts it out. This track showcases some of the best rhymes in the game, don’t sleep on it. I’ll make sure I get the full version up when it’s out.
