Flatbush Zombies – Raising Hip Hop From the Dead
The Brooklyn crew comprised of Meechy Darko, Zombie Juice, and Erick Arc Elliott made their Internet debut as Flatbush Zombies with a video that celebrated two of their favorite things: weed and waffles.
Next came a viral spark that got the attention of hip-hop blogs and a few major labels, but it didn’t stop there.
After a string of trippy videos for “S.C.O.S.A.”and “Face-Off (L.S. Darko),” Flatbush Zombies released their first full-length mixtape, D.R.U.G.S., last week. From Kilo Kish’s magnetic appearance on “JupiterSound” to the syrupy, smoked-out “Laker Paper,” D.R.U.G.S. is every bit a strange smoker’s album as it is an introduction to the left-field collective.
In the latest episode of Network A, Tim Brodhagen troops to Flatbush, Brooklyn for a day with Meechy Darko, Zombie Juice and Erick Arc Elliott of the Flatbush Zombies. Despite only two years in the rap game, the trio is already being tapped as leaders of hip hop’s long awaited renaissance. As you’ll see, they are fully up to the challenge, check out below.
