Today, two exciting musical projects were released by hip hop’s very own living pioneers, Elzhi (formerly of Slum Village) & DJ Rhettmatic (world famous Beat Junkies). Elzhi’s Elmatic is a tribute record to the classic Nas debut, Illmatic, & features the talent of Detroit’s own Will Sessions on live instruments, DJ Dez on wax, Amp Fiddler on keys, & rapper Royce Da 5’9″! Rhett, for his own birthday, released Wonderlove as a dedication mix to fellow Taurus, the wonder himself, Stevie Wonder. Get your free downloads right unda.

    “XXL and Elzhi.com are proud to present Elzhi’s new mixtape, Elmatic, for free download. [Cop it here ***Fixed]

    The 10-track offering—which finds the Detroit lyricist paying homage to Nas’s classic debute LP, Illmatic—was produced entirely by Will Sessions. Fellow D-Town MC Royce da 5’9” and Illmatic beatmaker Pete Rock also make appearances.

    Fans can pre-order limited edition physical copies of the disc and other merchandise at elzhi.com. now. —XXL Staff”
