Video: Elzhi performing Elmatic at Tone Nightclub


Not so long ago, former Slum Village emcee, Elzhi came out to Sydney to do some rapping. He has been getting a bit of a buzz from his Illmatic tribute album Elmatic. Not just your average mixtape, he uses live band Will Sessions to rework the classic Nas instrumentals. Here is a taste of the record, and a video from his show at Tone.
