Grindin’ & 40 Days Touring are pleased to announce the first solo tour in New Zealand for one of Hip Hop’s most lyrical MC’s live and direct from Detroit, Elzhi.
Elzhi made his international debut on “Come and Get It,” a stand out song from Jay Dee’s (J Dilla) debut album, “Welcome 2 Detroit”. The widespread praise for the track led to Elzhi joining the group Slum Village in 2002. The albums that Elzhi recorded as a member of the group (“Trinity”, “Detroit Deli” and “Slum Village”) have sold more than 600,000 copies and established Slum Village as one of the most respected Hip Hop groups in the world.
In mid 2011 Elzhi released his eagerly anticipated mixtape, “Elmatic”, a homage to Nas’ widely praised debut “Illmatic”. With his positive image and undeniable talent, Elzhi is considered to be one of the greatest emcees in the world. As he moves forward, Elzhi will continue to build on his strong, international fan base.
