The last time we heard from Elzhi he had a Kickstarter campaign in late 2013 for fans to crowd-fund his next album. And then there were no further updates on that project or whether he met his target. He resurfaced on a few guest appearances, first on Markis Precise’s “Kiss The Ring” with Fashawn, and then on BadBadNotGood & Ghostface Killah’s latest Sour Soul album on the “Gun Showers” single in late October of last year.
Earlier today he released a new single titled “February”, which is produced by another Michigan native and Potholes favorite 14KT. The piano driven melody on “February” is moody and somewhat pensive over boom bap drums. An introspective Elzhi discusses transitioning from the seasons, reminiscing about his childhood, and J Dilla, who was born in and passed away in February. The new single serves as the lead from his forthcoming album Lead Poison which is set to be released in May.
