eLZhi - The Leftovers (Unmixedtape) Free Download

The news of Slum Village’s demise and impending final release has got me listening to a lot of SV lately and so now’s probably the best time to give ya’ll this “mixtape” that eLZhi released for free a couple of months ago. This “UnMixedtape” is raw, sparse and to the point, and also one of my favorite (if not THE favorite) eLZhi solo releases. eLZhi is one of the best and most underrated lyricists in Hip Hop today and few can match his skills and patterns. Slum Village's breakup is disheartening but at least the little I’ve heard of their last album is living up to my expectations of what a final Slum Village album should sound like, and this Leftovers release proves that eLZhi is more than capable of carrying the torch for SV. I’ll leave you with the description of “The Leftovers” release and a video for its single “Deep” and a dope video of eLZhi breaking down the “art of patterns.” That video is a MUST for any MC aspiring or pro. You can find the download link for the mixtape after the videos below.

"The Leftovers UnMixedtape is exactly what it sounds like: A compilation of one of the game's most talented Emcee's unreleased and featured works. Whether it's a promo joint from a few months back (eLZhi and Black Milk - Deep), a feature from another artist's project (Danny Brown - Contra feat. eLZhi), or just a rare gem from years past (eLZhi and DJ Dez - Living), these Leftovers would have passed for a fresh cooked meal if you didn't know better. It's raw, uncut, unmastered, fresh from the studio and ready for your ears. No DJs, just eLZhi and his comrades, your speakers and you. Without the Leftovers UnMixedtape, most of these songs would never have seen the light of day, so consider this a gift, and come get your grub on!"

One of my favorite eLZhi verses:

Don't compare me to jokes/I'll strangle the air in your throat/Like you jump from a chair and choke/In mid-air from a rope/Got a big gun and carry a scope/The flair of the smoke/Keep niggaz quiet like words that librarians spoke – Little Brother, Hiding Place (Feat. Elzhi)
