    Product Details


    What happens when two of Cali's most respected hip-hop acts get together to record an album? One of the most refreshing hip-hop albums to emerge in years. Bay Area stalwarts Zion I and Living Legends member The Grouch have created a record that will have heads hyphy, uplifted, and pondering social ills--all at the same time. Tracks like "Current Affairs" tackle the issues of the Homeland Security Act and the diminishing rights of everyday citizens. "Trigger" calls for heads to reject sensationalistic news and mind control of the mass media. But Zion I always mix it up: take "Hit Em," featuring Bay Area Hyphy emcee Mistah F.A.B. Simple but bangin', the track demonstrates the Oakland based crew are too varied and versatile to be relegated to conscious hip-hop. What's more, this album shows that producer Amp Live can rock a jazz inflected or a hyphy beat. "Our past collaborations-Silly Putty and Flow-were always fan favorites," explains emcee Zion of Zion I of why the two acts decided to collaborate, "so we thought we should make a whole album together. We all share a strong connection with Oakland," Zion adds of the title that's a spin on the Too $hort track on his 1989 album Life Is..."A lot of beauty and hope has come out of all the struggle here."
