Today, July 8, is the birthday of Brooklyn rapper and Flatbush Zombies member Zombie Juice, who now turns 28.

Born and raised in Brooklyn, N.Y., Antonio Lewis (Juice) grew up with Dimitri Simms (a.k.a Meechy Darko) and Erick Elliott (a.k.a Erick the Architect). The three bonded over their love of rap, comic books and Dragon Ball Z and started rapping as a trio as teenagers. The guys officially formed the group Flatbush Zombies under the umbrella of the Beast Coast movement, the same movement that bands together Brooklyn crews Pro Era and Underachievers, in 2010. The Zombies self-released their debut mixtape D.R.U.G.S. in 2012, which was filled with psychedelic-laced rhymes backed by Erick's signature production.

After years of building up their faithful underground fanbase, the Zombies dropped their official debut studio album, 3001: A Laced Odyssey, in 2016. The LP allowed the guys to broaden their fan base tenfold and was met with rave reviews from hip-ho heads. 3001 was named one of the best projects of 2016 by XXL.

To date, FBZ has worked with acts like Snoop Dogg, Danny Brown, Harlem's A$AP Mob, RZA and more. In 2018, the group dropped off Vacation in Hell, their first album since 2016.

Happy Birthday, Zombie Juice!
