Meechy Darko, Zombie Juice and Erick Arc Elliott, better known as the Brooklyn collective Flatbush Zombies have returned to bless us all with the follow up to their D.R.U.G.S. release. With the release of a few single’s from the project here and there “Better Off Dead” quickly became one of the more promising releases this year and was sure to prove the evolution of the trio. Coming in at 19 psych-bassline-ridden tracks the project reflects a new movement in hip hop that is refreshing progressive yet remains true to the core. Action Bronson and Danny Brown take the only vocal guest spots while Obey City and Harry Fraud are given nods on production. All in all “Better Off Dead” stands strong amongst the mainstream and casts a dark shadow over those on the rise. This will be a hard one to leave from the rotation.
