Elzhi recently collaborated with Royce Da 5’9 on his remake of “Life’s a Bitch,” a cut off Elmatic, his tribute to Nas’ Illmatic. But their work together might take on a lengthier form. Speaking with The Well Versed, the former Slum Village MC explained that they talked about working together again, though nothing has been set in stone.
“It’s not farfetched. I just did a show here recently, he came out and showed some love,” he said. “He did ‘Life’s a Bitch’ with me. After the show was over, we had a conversation. We talked about the future briefly about us coming together and doing tracks. We talked about it before, but you know, life gets in the way. He got with Slaughterhouse, I had my own troubles, I’m starting to establish myself as a solo artist, a lot of stuff got in the way, but we definitely have a mutual respect for each other’s craft, so it’s not farfetched, it can happen anytime soon.”
He also addressed Sean Price’s recent comments that he wouldn’t collaborate with Elzhi because he considered him a “super emcee” and didn’t want to dead his buzz.
“I heard about that…man, I feel honored that that brother would even say that about me, because I came up listening to Boot Camp Clik and Heltah Skeltah. I’m a big fan of his music, as well as the music he’s doing now. He’s definitely got bars and I know he knows that. I definitely like to hear the things that come out his mouth when he’s creating, so that’s an honor.”
