Good news for fans of grown ass man Rap: Elzhi has announced the imminent release of his long delayed Lead Poison LP. The album became mired in controversy at the end of 2015 after a fan threatened to bring a class action suit against him for collecting $37,000 for the project via Kickstarter in 2013 and failing to deliver.
About the extended delay, he told Noisey:
I’ve been away for awhile, and one of the reasons why I’ve been gone is because I’ve been getting chased by this fucking black cloud that I can’t seem to shake. The cloud has been so crazy that it’s made me look at things in ways where, you know my perception is pretty much negative. At the end of the day, the people that knew what was going on—like the people who knew that the record existed, because they heard the record—they was excited. If someone’s trying to say that I scammed them, that’s only because they don’t know and don’t have the information that we have.
