Year of The Zombie

Posted By on Wed, Oct 23, 2013 at 4:00 PM

In terms of most original, wildly independent, underground hip-hop, 2013 was the year of the Zombies. That's Flatbush ZOMBIES to be precise. The Brooklyn-based trio has been ruling over the New York underground Beast Coast scene since the release of the whacked-out, hipadelic, murder-sex-and-drugs anthem D.R.U.G.S. (their first official mixtape). Though the mixtape dropped in mid-2012, the heat and hype created by the critically acclaimed tape carried the lyrical lunatics into 2013 with spotlights shining and tours kicking off.

But now it's the latter half of 2013. And it's time to get back to work.

Not a problem for the ZOMBIE crew, though. October saw the release of the new music video for "Death", a song coming from the brand new mixtape Better Off Dead. Directed and shot by Tone & Vinny Picone, the video features the ZOMBIEs up to their usual murderous antics with a rural twist— including riding tractors, and brandishing chainsaws. As per the usual, it's a banger, and perfect for the Halloween season.

Whatcha gonna do when the zombies come for you?
