I've been listening to this, and as a result i have to point out two things:

1) I dont think anyone else could have pulled this off as masterfully as elzhi did. I say that because not only is this cat spittin', he incorporated a live band to remake the beats. Because of that, it adds a dynamic to the music allowing you to hear the nuances of the instruments playing these classics and allows them the freedom to incorporate the originals into the tracks (a la Lifes A bi*ch/yearning for your love by the gap band) in a way that you really dont hear outside of The Roots. Lil Wayne couldnt have done it. None of these cats who are really out here could have done something THIS well. For that, elzhi has shot up to my top 5, and the inarguable best emcee from Detroit. Yes, elzhi is better than Em and Royce. Hate it or love it.

2) By creating this album as a tribute, Elmatic gave me an even GREATER appreciation for illmatic, so much so that IMO, it is the inarguable greatest hip hop album ever. illmatic was something that came out of NOWHERE when it dropped and had me rewinding the tape like CRAZY. Here are these rhymes of a 17, 18, 19 year old kid spitting THIS sh*t over THESE beats... fu*king epic. Not just content (lets be honest, Nas was a loose cannon on the subject matter), but delivery and cadence, metaphors... the whole package. Ready To Die is a very close second... VERY CLOSE, but I have to give the nod to illmatic after this. Think about it; how often do you hear someone trying to pay homage to RTD? Reasonable Doubt? Me Against The World?

smh this sh*t is ridic man i gave it a day to marinate and this sh*t blows me away. this was effortless to him, he paid homage and more than did it justice. so many quotables and sh*t to rewind, wow ill post them later dude was in the zone man.

the legit goat delivered a gem.

tell me im not the only 1 that loses it on the outro to the world is yours, with the represent beat being played on the bells or xylophone or whatever instrument it is then slowly fades out and then a few seconds later that sh*t is thumping. prob my fav part of the tape atm, already made the track a ringtone.

Just curious, where did this rip come from?

Edit: Nevermind, just found out it was from his official Web site.
