(Detroit, MI )
Genre: hiphop

Before the world ever heard the name ELZHI, the young Detroit artist was sitting in the back of  classrooms thinking of rhymes, spitting verses while his friend Fes banged out beats on lunchroom tables, or was battling rival emcees on the blacktop after school. 


Fast forward to 2010, After overwhelming success of his album ELMATIC, after “Lead Poison” is named Apple Music’s number 1 album of 2016, and even after the 2018 release of Jericho Jackson, with production overseen by 9th Wonder — ELZHI continues to work his craft. 


He is currently working on a new album that will be released in 2020.
