Song: Deep
Artist: Elzhi
Album: The Feed
Label: Barak Records
Producer: Black Milk
Notes: none
Analysis: Elzhi isn’t a household name, and probably never will be, but he’s been around for over a dozen years now, as a member of the acclaimed Slum Village group. Last year he dropped an under the radar, flat-out great solo debut called The Preface, not-coincidentally with Black Milk behind the boards on most of the songs. Thankfully, Elzhi brought Black Milk’s speaker-blasting sound back for his 2009 effort The Feed. Elzhi rattles off his rhymes effortlessly over Milk’s rumbling bass:

You need to cease the braggin’,
you see the fire that I spit when I unleash the dragon.
The ruler is back, we battle, your medula is cracked.
We do it online, you find that your computer is hacked.
It’s your decision; where my brain stores division,
I’m seein’ bars come together like doors in prison.
When I spit that line you can keep in your mind, when it creep.
I do this in my sleep.
Oh yeah, I gets deep.

Lyrics like that prove Elzhi’s dopeness, and over Black Milk production, there’s very little hip hop out there that can stack up.
