Flatbush Zombies Freestyle on ‘Tim Westwood’
The Flatbush Zombies recently took their talents across The Pond, ending up at the mandatory pit stop for rappers in the UK, Tim Westwood TV.
The trio of Erick The Architect, Meech and Juice catch wreck on the mic but not before their manager Josh, who Westwood affectionately refers to as the third member of 3rd Base, kicks some bars. After he gets his rocks off, the group holds court in the booth with Meechy going off the top of the dome.
The group’s debut album 3001: A Laced Odyssey debuted at No. 10 on the Billboard 200 when it dropped back in March, after pushing 28,000 units in its first week on shelves purely independently. “Bounce” marked a Top 40 hit for the New Yorkers as it peaked at No. 32 on the Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks chart in February. We ranked the album in our list of top 27 LP's to drop so far in 2016, back in June.
The last time we caught up with the Brooklyn Brain Eaters they were in full on wrasslin' mode. To commemorate WWE's Summer Slam, the group recreated Harlem Heat’s infamous 1997 Spring Stampede promo aimed at Hulk Hogan and a promo for WWE’s reigning tag team champions, the New Day.
The FBZs headlined the Bumbershoot Festival in Seattle, Wash earlier this month. Others on the bill for the September showcase include, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Fetty Wap, Run The Jewels, Tyler, The Creator, G-Eazy, Anderson .Paak and more.
