Zumbi, emcee of the hip-hop duo Zion I, presents the mixtape "Zumbi-VS. (Versus)", a mixtape featuring the Jacka, Martian Luther, Flying Lotus, Little Dragon, The Grouch, Bassnectar and more. Zumbi explains the idea behind the project: "I wanted to take the ultra creative landscape of hip hop and crush it down into a microcosm of what I'm feeling. I'm stretching out over varied styles to challenge myself. So it's really I vs I."
"First and foremost I want to say thank you for supporting me on this project! The third and final single to "The Time Is Right" is called "Stained", featuring The Bridge, produced by Jonathan Marquez. This is one of the many tracks on the mixtape that I tell a story, but the reason that we're dropping it as the final single is because it's very relevant to where I am currently in my life.
"The Time Is Right" will be dropping next Wednesday, September 21st. I'm looking forward to your feedback and thank you again for the constant support."
"The Time Is Right" drops via DJBooth.net, where Azad's 2nd single, "Diamond in the Rough" is #9 on their Independent Hip Hop Song Chart.
Deca came out swinging last on the blast with his song, "Due Time" off "The Veil" LP, that had made a considerable amount of buzz on the internet from DJBooth.net and other buzzworthy sites. He returns with his self produced "Clockwork" featuring Ichibon and Roqy Tyraid. The track contains mysterious rare vocal samples and a beautiful Prince sample to darkened out vibes, poking at the facade of modern day living. mediafire link: http://www.mediafiremax.com/deca-%E2%80%93-%E2%80%9Cclockwork%E2%80%9D-ft-ichiban-roqy-tyraid-audio/ .
