When Gorilla Zoe released his debut single, Hood N*gga, in early ‘07, it led to radio and street success, which in turn led to his solo debut, Welcome to the Zoo. One year later, the Block Ent/Bad Boy South artist hopes to rebuild his buzz with a sophomore set, entitled Don’t Feed The Animals. The official first single, I’m Dumb, follows a nearly-identical formula to Hood N*gga: the intro verse begins immediately, followed by the hook and three eight-bar verses alternating with the refrain, and finishing off with the same intro. Although this style has proven successful for Zoe before, will the pattern once again catch on with audiences? Find out this summer, when Big Block and Diddy push I’m Dumb to the airwaves.
