Rap duo Zion I are releasing a second album and
DVD this year, fresh on the heels of their sophomore album, Deep Water Slang
The new DVD, titled Curb Servin, will
feature 9 brand new songs and exclusive unreleased remixes by the West coast’s
Triple Threat DJ, Vinroc.
"This record was made in the spirit of the
Bay Area’s fiercely independent music scene," MC Zion said. "And it
highlights the attitude of the Bay Area hustle. The everyday grind."
In addition to the new cuts, the CD also features
Aceyalone, Deuce Eclipse and D.U.S.T., Balance and Locksmith.
The DVD features a short documentary about the
Oakland, California group, featuring live footage, backstage footage, capturing
the struggles independent acts face in the music business.
"Rappin’ on the streets and selling CDs
out of the trunks of cars is alive and well here," MC Zion continued. "But
the other idea of this record is to showcase Live Up Records artists and all
the new energy emerging from the ‘New Bay Area.’"
Zion I is currently planning a tour of the United
States, Europe and Japan. Curb Servin hits stores July 29.
