Although Oakland hip-hop duo Zion I have been absent from our pages since their April release of Drop It On The 1, it’s safe to say that the pair have been putting in major work. On top of preparing for the October release of their new album Shadowboxing they’ll also be embarking on a nationwide tour that same month. To keep fans fulfilled until early October, Zion I have dropped off their Shadowboxing lead single Float, which is a collaboration between the group and DJ Minnesota. MC Zumbi seems to literally Float along on the song as he addresses the nonbelievers and boasts about his smooth living. Together DJ Minnesota and Zion I’s other half DJ AmpLive provide Float with its spacey production, which seems pretty fitting considering the song’s title. Shadowboxing will be released on October 2, while the duo will embark on their national tour on October 4.
