Zion I – Saving Souls [video]
Hip-hop vet Zion I is excited to release the latest video for the single, “Saving Souls,” off his summer LP The Labyrinth. On “Saving Souls,” Zumbi challenges listeners to use the vibrant culture around them to empower one another, instead of tearing people down. The track is produced by Bay Area up-and-comer Mikos DaGawd.
With his signature relaxed, smooth-flowing rhymes, Zumbi references people who have inspired him, including Cassius Clay and ancient deities, including Mohammed, Akhenaton and Hare Ram. With the backdrop of West Oakland and San Francisco, Zumbi raps over a looping drum, persistent electronic beats and female vocalized “I’s” that become part of the beat.
The Labyrinth will be available summer of 2016.
