Elzhi made his international debut on "Come and Get It," a stand out song from Jay Dee's (J Dilla) debut album, Welcome 2 Detroit. The widespread praise for the track led to Elzhi joining the group Slum Village in 2002. The albums that Elzhi recorded as a member of the group – Trinity, Detroit Deli, and Slum Village – have sold more than 600,000 copies and established Slum Village as one of the most respected hip-hop groups in the world.
With The JAE.B Group as new management since 2010 and Elzhi's departure from the record label that is home of Slum Village, Elzhi is now focused on reaching new heights. After a decade of recording, and years of international touring under his belt, Elzhi has the focus and experience to conquer new levels of success as a solo artist and one of the greatest emcees.
After "The Leftovers" mixtape in 2009, Elzhi has come out with his anticipated mixtape eLmatic: paying homage to Nas' widely praised Illmatic classic.
After the overwhelming success of ELMATIC, ELZHI is in the beginning stages of writing his new album using beats provided by an exciting roster of producers, and is embarking on a tour to reintroduce himself to the world.
"A life dedicated, to them never saying I never made it!" What started out as a bar in a verse has become a sort of a mantra for Chill Moody. The young aspiring hip-hop artist prides himself on being one of the top lyricists to hit Philadelphia in years. He has been compared to rappers such as Common, Black Thought, Lupe Fiasco, and Talib Kweli due to his flow, lyrical content, song making ability and versatility, but at the same time has managed to set himself apart from the masses by staying true to himself and telling his own story his lyrics.
After Chill Moody graduated from Overbrook High School in Philadelphia he began attending Millersville University where he honed his craft of creating high-quality hip-hop music. He graduated with a degree in speech communications, with an option in public relations. Chill Moody has released six official mixtapes, his most critically acclaimed being: The iiL-Chill Project, which reached over 100+ downloads in the first ten minutes of its November 13th 2009 release, and has since then cleared 3,000+ downloads. "I just think it's time for lyrics and substance to be bought back to the forefront of music, and I feel like myself and the rest of 'Tha ESTablishmynt' have the tools to do so."
