In the past few years the music scene has exploded due to the internet. With the ability for artists and producers alike to now release and promote their own music without the help of a major label means that new talent is pouring out of the woodwork. This is how the group known as the Flatbush Zombies gained popularity. Hailing from Flatbush, Brooklyn, the hip-hop group is composed of  rappers Meechy Darko, Zombie Juice, and Eric Elliott (or “the Architect”), who also doubles as the producer for the Zombies. In late 2012 the group dropped their debut mixtape, “Death and Reincarnation Under God’s Supervision,” which was followed up a year later by the release of second mixtape, “Better Off Dead.” Since that tape in 2013 they have worked with a plethora of other artists, both mainstream and underground, as well as toured around the world with groups such as “The Underachievers,” and members of the “ASAP Mob.” They have dropped a few songs sporadically, as well as a joint EP with The Underachievers called “Clockwork Indigo,” but Zombie fan have been growing more and more impatient for a new project.

On January 11, 2016, following the drop of their single, “Glorious Thugs,” the group announced the long awaited release of their debut album, “3001: A Laced Odyssey,” which was scheduled drop on March 11, 2016, but was leaked in full a day before.

Although the Zombies have a strong fan base from Flatbush and Brooklyn, their music has made it nationwide as well as overseas to Europe, and their hype is now massive. Their music and style are so different from anything else in the rap culture, combining elements of underground rap and aggression with psychedelic music and an element of mystery, which keeps listeners excited. Each of the three group members has a different individual style, making each one easily distinguishable in these genres. With each release, they gain more and more support with both the underground and mainstream hip hop cultures. With no help from a major label, they have built a following that broke out of Flatbush and is quickly creeping around the world.
