It’s been about 2 years since eLZhi announced he had a new mixtape on the way, Elmatic. As the title would suggest, the project is eLZhi’s take on Nas‘ classic debut LP, Illmatic. That album’s clearly untouchable, but if there’s one artist I’d like to hear re-interpret it, it’s EL. Today, we get word that the tape is still on the way, and should be coming soon. Listen to the tape’s bonus track “Verbal Intercourse 2,” which has eLZhi going in over 14KT‘s “Verbal Intercourse 06″ beat. “eLZhi warns and shares aspiring artist about the shady music business and touches on his departure from SLUM VILLAGE‘s Label and his former rap partner.” Interpret that as you will.
