Elzhi
»Hip Hop is not used to covers«
Not just anybody can approach a classic like Nas’ Illmatic. Not saying that Elzhi wouldn’t be just the right person to do so: As a veteran of the Detroit Hip Hop scene and as member of the indie institution Slum Village he already has earned his stripes. And his re-interpretation Elmatic alongside the band Will Sessions has been one of the most celebrated releases this year. Enough of a reason to embark on a tour through Germany during which we were able to talk to Elzhi about his latest body of work.
