Flatbush Zombies Live!
Hailing from Brooklyn, Flatbush Zombies take part of their moniker from the streets that raised them. Forerunners of the new wave of young, fresh and experimental underground hip hop artists making a name for themselves as part of the New York Beast Coast scene, the psychedelic trio blends 90s era East Coast rap with trap beats, cinematic production values and sophisticated, hypnotic lyrical content.
Finding the outfit on fine form, the album signals a refinement of their trademark sound, which rests on deft wordplay and torrents of lyrical poetry that touch on their personal experiences of mental illness, addiction and finding happiness in a materialistic world. Their strong social and political messages, speaker-shaking bass lines and undeniable stage presence make for an arresting hip-hop hybrid live show that often has their crowds moshing up a frenzy.
