You may remember the band from their epic work on Elmatic, Elzhi’s re-interpretation of Nas’ Illmatic.

The Elmatic Instrumentals is the product of the much sought after instrumentals from Detroit rapper Elzhi’s Elmatic, which dropped earlier this year.

Elmatic boldy re-interprets Nas’ classic Illmatic with some very impressive production thanks to a Detroit band called Will Sessions.

In the video above, DJ Premier takes a minute to sit with these labor of love recreations of his classic Illmatic productions. Much awesomeness ensues.

Look out for The Elmatic Instrumentals to drop on September 27th.
