For the latest in-depth interview from Hard Knock TV, Nick Huff gets up with one of the illest lyricists doing it, Elzhi. El speaks on Ice Cube being the emcee that inspired him to start rapping (as well as other early influences), his intricate rhyme patterns, and his first visit to the legendary Detroit Hip Hop Shop. From there, Elzhi goes on to talk about first connecting with Proof (R.I.P.), kickin' it with Eminem, and much more. Look for part 2 of the interview to drop on Friday.
