Check out this banging new track from local emcee Elzhi



Like De La Soul and well, hundreds of others, local legend emcee Elzhi took to the crowdfunding site Kickstarter to fund a new album back in 2013. and though the journey has been long, the project, Lead Poison, appears to be ready to drop before the year is up. Since Elzhi was able to raise $37,382 through his campaign, he has released a thank you track called “P.S.” to all his fans and backers alike. “P.S.” is a soulful piano and bass-driven track in which the emcee speaks on his past tribulations. This track won’t be on his album but if it’s any indication of the direction Elzhi is going, then the album will be full of bangers.
