- Event Details
GROUND LIFT MEDIA is pleased to welcome Elhzi (formerly of Slum Village) to Chicago for his 2012 World Tour on July 26th 2012 at Subterranean. Local support includes buzzing Hip-Hop artists Denmark Vessey and The WHOevers, Chicago’s hometown hero Pugs Atomz, as well as Vocalo’s “Quest for the Best DJ Competition” winner Shazam Bangles.
Elzhi made his debut on the track “Come and Get It” off of J. Dilla’s Welcome 2 Detroit album. The Detroit native joined up with Slum Village before releasing his solo mixtape Witness My Growth. After signing to JAE. B Group, Elzhi released the critically acclaimed ELmatic in 2011. A recreation of Nas’ 1994 Illmatic, Elzhi replaced the Queens backdrop with Detroit and brought in live instrumentals courtesy of Detroit’s newest Hip-Hop band Will Sessions.
The evening will also feature Pugs Atomz, Denmark Vessey, & local Hip-Hop duo The WHOevers (DotKom and J. Arthur) round out the lineup. These two are also part of the Hip-Hop Collective SpeakEasy Rum Runners.
Hosting duties will be covered by Chicago’s own Neak and Ms. Chicago. Neak’s latest album Love Greater: The Prequel featured The ILLZ, MC ADAD, and more and was presented by DJBooth.net, Earmilk, and Prefix Mag.
Doors open at 10 pm on Thursday, July 26, 2012 at Subterranean (2011 W. North Avenue, Chicago, IL). The show is 21+ and $15 presale tickets are available at subt.net.
