eLZhi "Talkin In My Sleep"
Next up off Slum Village member and Detroit veteran eLZhi's debut solo album, The Preface is this sleepy, reverb-drenched number that sees production work from Black Milk. The overall message of the track seems to be about living with dreams and nightmares, and it's easy to picture eLZhi suffering from a severe bout of insomnia here, wandering up some deserted Motor City street in the truly wee hours of the morning. It's a contrast to the colorfully robust production on this number, but then, anyone longtime player in the Detroit hip-hop pack is bound to be adept in many musical moods. Photo by Jeremy Deputat.
