"3001: A Laced Odyssey" by Flatbush Zombies on iTunes

12 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

Following a string of gritty underground mixtapes and collaborations with titans like RZA, Brooklyn rappers (and Joey Bada$$ affiliates) Flatbush Zombies release their first official album. Channeling the surrealistic violence that made Wu-Tang Clan a phenomenon in the '90s (and continues to play out through the supersaturated wordplay of guys like Earl Sweatshirt), 3001 is murky and dense but highly colorful too, led by the septic growl of Meechy Darko and the casually sinister beats of Erick the Architect. Special mention goes to “Bounce,” the soulful “A Spike Lee Joint,” and the mob music of “Ascension,” where Meechy declares time an illusion one minute and talks gunplay the next.

About Flatbush Zombies

Brooklyn, New York's Flatbush Zombies channel the best of the '90s East Coast rap era on cinematic tracks full of mind-altering atmospherics and dense lyrical content. The FBZ trio was formed by Meechy Darko, Zombie Juice, and Erick "The Architect" Elliott in 2010. Meech and Elliott grew up together in the Flatbush area of Brooklyn, and hooked up with Juice in high school, freestyling with each other until they decided to lay down official tracks. Their first release, "Thug Waffle," was released in January 2012. Showcasing Meech's gritty growl and Juice's cocky boasts over Elliott's bass-heavy laid-back production, the song and video were a hit and went viral. Later that year, they released their first mixtape, D.R.U.G.S. ("Death and Reincarnation Under God's Supervision"), which featured the ominous "S.C.O.S.A." and up-in-smoke "Face Off (L.S.Darko)." As their underground presence expanded, they made a number of guest appearances, like on A$AP Mob's "Bath Salt" and the Underachievers' "No Religion." Along with the Underachievers and Joey Bada$$'s Pro Era crew, FBZ formed the Beast Coast movement and toured across the United States in early 2013. That September, they dropped their second mixtape, the drugged-out epic Better Off Dead, which included verses by Action Bronson and Danny Brown. Continuing their Beast Coast relationship, FBZ and the Underachievers released a collaborative EP, Clockwork Indigo, in 2014. By 2016, Meech, Juice, and Erick completed work on their official debut LP, 3001: A Laced Odyssey, which was released in March 2016. ~ Neil Z. Yeung
