PREMIERE: Elzhi “February” Video
An ode to J Dilla. Rest In Power.
Before the month that J Dilla was born and died in, is up, we are proud to present the visuals for “February,” the latest single from Elzhi’s upcoming album, Lead Poison.
Director Jae opens up the music video with some great aerial shots of Detroit during the winter before jumping into the thick of things with Elzhi laying on a bed. The story loosely follows that of the 2004 film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, shifting between shots of a present-day and a younger Elzhi as he rides his bike with his friends down the street, attends a funeral, and falls in love. Above all, the song is an open letter to the late, great J Dilla. The video winds down with some shots of J Dilla paraphernalia in Elzhi’s room and a current day Elzhi waking up, leaving us to wonder if the experiment went according to plan.
Elzhi’s new album, Lead Poison, is available for pre-order now, with an expected release date of March 25.
