Flatbush ZOMBiES Bring Tour Through Winnipeg, Edmonton & Calgary
Posted by Hip Hop Canada @IHeartTART in News
The good folks over at Nighshift Entertainment and DubSac are pleased to announce that they are bringing the Flatbush ZOMBiES through Calgary, Edmonton, and Winnipeg as part of the North Trip Tour.
In case you’ve managed to sleep on these cats, Flatbush ZOMBiES are one of my Top 5 crews on the come-up right now. They have this psychedelic murky underground sound that can only be described as Flatbush ZOMBiES. The Brooklyn trio consists of Zombie Juice, Meechy Darko, and Erick Arc Elliot. And these guys have been so crucial to the Beast Coast movement of the last few years, ever since they dropped that debut goodie goodness that was D.R.U.G.S.
Erick Arc Elliot does some of the juiciest production in the rap game right now. FBZ keep most of their production in-house, which means that they’re f**king with Erick Arc Elliot beats that no one other rap cat will ever get a chance to get his greasy paws on. That’s key.
Man… I remember when FBZ rolled through Toronto to play Canadian Music Week in 2014 and I wrote up the pre-show blog post on HipHopCanada for that. And while I was writing, I melted down because I knew there was no way they’d be coming through Calgary for me to see. So now a year has passed and it looks like y’all have FINALLY stopped sleeping on the supremeness of FBZ. Because now we’re FINALLY getting the ZOMBiES show I’ve been waiting on. ALL PRAISES DUE TO THE RAP GODS ON THIS ONE! Peep all of the event details after the jump.
