Bro that flip is soo ill and different. They literally had some chops in reverse and others not. But the programming was done so well, you notice that something sounds so right, but it sounds odd at the same time lol.
No doubt. I'm gonna run back that entire SV album today. That Isley joint is one of my favorite samples of all time, and Black Milk might have the most creative flip of it I've ever heard

That album is a banger, I run it all the time. I agree that it is the best flip I have heard of that song too.

Was young and misguided, smokin' a mixed hybrid
My peoples fed me pork, if there was ever fish, fried it
Not puttin' poisons in my body takes discipline
Meditating, readin' books 'bout nutrition, when
You only can afford to get you a 4 for 4
And can't order more from off the menu, the corner store
Venue, or the gas station robbery probably seem doable
That nightmare right there makes the dream beautiful
But quite rare what is lost hope, understand
Some of us crack babies 'cause our moms came across dope
But never got a fair shot
Understand most conspiracy theorists think that the system put it there
It was their plot to break up the homes, to break up our spirits
They broke our English up, we turned it to slang
But that's just a dialect that I select when I hang
It's not meant to be understood, especially if you join a gang
And for the family, you let off every shell and casing
Tryna turn a pity party to a celebration
The energy from the cotton field
Subconsciously is why my folks get shot and killed
Think about it, when I finally have my seed
I'll show him how to succeed
Since he bleed the same blood of ancestors that couldn't read
Before they got freed on paper
And trickin' us to thinking that we were free 'cause of paper
I'm 'bout to own some land and build a couple skyscrapers
A few hospitals and some houses for my neighbors
Understand me?

Up there for verse of the year for me, too many layers/jewels dropped, especially about health in the black community/the various reasons why cats dont or cant eat right.

I would love for a mainstream artist to feature eLZhi on a major record. He deserves another shot at acclaim - too great of an emcee to be overlooked
Absolutely agree. Or a project with a producer like Hit-Boy, Madlib, or Alchemist that have a little more clout in the game that can get more mainstream listeners to check him out. Another appealing thing about Elzhi is that he's not so lyrical/miracle that he's not appealing for regular fans to enjoy.

Yeah a collaboration project with one of those guys would most definitely put him back out there
