Elzhi dropped? Why didn’t I hear about this before?
Sure, it’s not El’s best project and it doesn’t even come close to Elmatic, but this is still a pretty good boom bap album. Elzhi’s bars are typically as great as they are. He is just as introspective and as full of soul food as usual. His bars are great and his storytelling is top tier, too. The boom-bap production across this record is also great. It’s the usual Elzhi project. It’s some good-ass hip hop and if you’re looking for that check it out. There are some hooks here and some occasional production choices that I don’t love, but aside from that, it’s another pretty good album from one of this decade’s most underrated MCs. Not much to say other than that I recommend it.
