Before the world ever heard the name ELZHI, he spent years paying dues, writing songs, entering battles, and recording demos until he finally made his international debut on “Come and Get It,” a standout track from J Dilla’s album, Welcome 2 Detroit. In 2001, Slum Village asked ELZHI to be a part of the group to elevate their reputation. He recorded multiple albums with his former group, sold hundreds of thousands of records, and toured the world performing his hit singles “Tainted (featuring Dwele)” and “Selfish (featuring Kanye West and John Legend)”. In 2004, ELZHI released Witness My Growth, a 2-disc mixtape featuring many of his lost or unfinished solo songs, which has come to be considered an underground classic by hip hop fans all over the world.
