An introduction to Flatbush Zombies.
While New York City is forever the birthplace of hip hop, the past decade or so has been run by other parts of the country. Atlanta is on fire, Chicago is too, and the west coast has been steady dropping jewels for a few years now as well. We can't forget about Houston and Miami as well, who have had a fair share of artists spring up to reach massive heights over the course of the past ten years.
But just because other cities and regions are getting their shine doesn't mean that New York City has fallen off. The Beast Coast movement proves that much. Artists like The Underachievers, Pro Era, and Flatbush Zombies have been making the case that New York's hip hop scene is as healthy as ever. Today we're going to focus on the trio that is the Flatbush Zombies. Comprised of Meechy Darko, Zombie Juice, and Erick "The Architect" Elliott, who serves as the in-house producer for the group. With a few mixtapes, an EP, and some sick features, the group is putting New York back on the map for modern hip hop. Today we dive into their ten essential tracks.
