Detroit rapper Elzhi may not come to mind when you think of MCs with dope lyrics. He tends to fly under the radar as other MCs may have more marketing and buzz. Don’t get it twisted, Elzhi is one of the best MCs in the game when it comes to lyrical skills. Just ask Royce Da 5’9″ who bigs him up one the track “Off” from his LP “Layers”.
He dropped an LP titled “Lead Poison” in March that I don’t think is getting the attention it deserves. Elzhi puts lyrics at the forefront in this project as his fans would expect. Throughout the project he uses his lyrical prowess to drop knowledge on a wide range of social topics. He shows his storytelling skills and uses this method to enhance the listeners experience. Hip Hop fans of lyrics will enjoy this. Fans who are new to Elzhi need to check this out as well.
When I think of a true Hip Hop MC, Elzhi makes the list.
