Zelooperz Announces ‘Bothic’ Album, Drops “ISBD”
Detroit native ZelooperZ teases his upcoming Bothic album with "ISBD (I Should Be Dead)." Signed to Danny Brown's Bruiser Brigade Records, ZeelooperZ's aggressive style and unorthodox flow is exactly what you'd expect from a Brown signee. His Bothic offering features a chanting chorus of "I should be dead" and plenty of screams and an in-your-face instrumental for the 20-something-year-old to rhyme over. Bothic is due out Feb. 19.
XXL spoke with ZelooperZ for "The Break" section and the young rapper told us that his first love is painting. "I am an artist first. That’s what I do. I love art. I’ve been painting since I was a kid. Music is kind of my second love. I started drawing as a kid like [in] elementary school. When I got into high school, I started painting. I mostly do everything like art. I got into music by just growing up in a household with all different types of music playing, it kind of stuck with you. We used to freestyle in the kitchen [and during] dinnertime. It was like a musical household and I always liked rhyming."
As ZelooperZ prepares for the release of his project, Danny Brown's long-awaited follow up to Old has no drop date. Last week (Jan. 23), the eccentric rapper took to Twitter to answer fan questions. When a fan commented that he was praying for the rapper to release his new album, Brown responded "Praying wit u bruh bruh." Hopefully we'll get new music soon.
