Elzhi - What I Write

Elzhi is a member of the Slum Village group, he joined the group after the late great, J.Dilla, decided to pursue a solo career in 2001. He was recommended and approved by J.Dilla himself. Elzhi is known in the "underground" Hip Hop community as a witty intellectual word-smith.

I found this video on Vimeo and it is created by Maxwell Strizich. In the description of the video Maxwell states, "This was my solution for a Kinetic Type assignment. I wanted to continue with a hand written approach to match the song. Originally I intended for camera movements but the way I shot the video didn't work as well as I had hoped. I hope to revisit this project."

Nonetheless I found this quite creative. Enjoy!
