HEROES IN THE CITY OF DOPE...>


ZION I & GROUCH ARE...HEROES IN THE CITY OF DOPE Category: Music

I am sometimes so jaded by this business of music, that I forget to be a fan. So on Friday night in the LBC I had the pleasure to see a BRAND NEW band that won my heart & soul.

HEROES IN THE CITY OF DOPE

This supergroup from the Yay Area features Zion and Amp Live from Zion I and Grouch from Living Legends. I believe that anyone can get down with their sound 'cause from what I heard at the show the beats are super-duper-hyphy and the lyrics are socially & politically conscious without being trigonometrically cerebral. It's only right for something coming out of Oakland in '06, the home of the Black Panther Party in their 40th anniversary year.

So check these cats out and definitely spend your money with them tomorrow if you have $20 burning a hole in your pocket...for once don't spend it on a sack and a blunt, or a wack album where most of your hard-earned goes to a major label which is really a liquor conglomerate on the low.

They're coming to your city, hopefully, check the tour routing below...

Yuuup, I fully agree...the first couple tracks had me nervous, but I was won over by track 3 and was pleasantly surprised. You never know what your gonna get nowadays, even with some of your favorite artists.
