The New New: 15 New York Rappers You Should Know


Flatbush Zombies
Borough: Brooklyn
Twitter: @FlatbushZombies
Notable song: “Thug Waffle”
Sounds like: Horrorcore/abstract raps over dark, inventive production.
Why you need to know them: As one of the New York crews who operate under the Beast Coast umbrella, Flatbush Zombies have found their angle and ran with it. Consisting of Erick Arc Elliott, Meechy Darko and Zombie Juice, the Flatbush natives have a lot of things that you’ll fall in love with. Their attention to detail for visuals (usually shot in HD), have all gone viral, based on engaging appeal and clear influences from classic films. Plus, reviving the East Coast’s dark early ‘90s aesthetic—a la Gravediggaz—is something hip-hop has been anticipating for a minute.
