On his latest solo project, eLZHi puts his own spin on one of the most highly-acclaimed releases in rap history. Since Nas’ Illmatic featured one of the most iconic Big Apple-dedicated records of all time, it’s only right that Elmatic feature a joint dedicated to the Slum Village alum’s hometown. On Detroit State of Mind, Will Sessions’ tweaked version of DJ Premier’s original beat sets the stage for rhymes drenched in Midwestern street ambiance. Those digging this musical blast from the past should be sure to check out eLZHi’s latest project when it hits his official site May 10.
