Its what you’ve all been waiting for and you just didn’t know you were waiting for it. Flatbush ZOMBiES has finally released a mixtape and I’m positive this will be the project that puts them on the map. After getting tons of love for Thug Waffle, S.C.O.S.A and Laker Paper, the guys have put together a weed and zombie infused set of tracks that gets their ulterior message across.
“I live by D.R.U.G.S., which stands for ‘death and reincarnation under god’s supervision.’ I fully believe we’ve been here before. I died when I was 16—that was the first time I did shrooms. I got hit in the face with reality. After all the years of brainwashing and bullshit, that trip really woke me up. That’s when I became a zombie.” – Meech
The tape just dropped today and is already making waves across the blogosphere and radio. The guys actually preformed on Shade 45 (XM radio station) this morning, just another example of how this unsigned group is going places. Don’t be surprised if this goes the way of A$AP Rocky with a lucrative major label deal coming soon. For now, you can pick up the tape here, and listen to it, be warned, it aint for everyone. Also, you can check the guys out on August 11th at Trillectru DOWNLOAD D.R.U.G.S – Flatbush ZOMBiES
*Standout Tracks* - Thug Waffles, YBA, Face-Off, Laker Paper
I have been keeping this group to myself for awhile now, but it’s about time that I introduce you guys to the newest group making waves out of Brooklyn. Known as the Flatbush Zombies, Meechy Darko and Juice collaborate on the vocals as they go in over some sick Erick Arc Elliot produced beats. Gaining notoriety with their ode to breakfast food and their favorite type of green, Thug Waffles was the track that put these guys on the map. From there, the charisma and charm of the group led them to an opening gig for A$AP Rocky, some love from Complex magazine, and a mention of top groups to watch by artist Lana Del Rey. The guys just dropped off another video today, entitled S.C.O.S.A which features some sick visuals. The production of these visuals was handled by the team from The Madbury Club, who do beautiful work on all of their projects. Currently, Flatbush Zombies is at SXSW and will be performing at the festival. So keep an eye on these guys and don’t be surprised if they follow in A$AP’s footsteps and sign themselves to a lucrative record deal. Oh, and for those who are wondering, Flatbush Zombies refers to where they are from and how they like to smoke so much weed that they eventually turn in to zombies.
