With their sophomore collaborative album, rapper-producer duo Zion I and West Coast underground neighbor The Grouch join forces to become Heroes in the Healing of a Nation. Though their blueprint for national unity involves plenty of “metaphysical, lyrical, spiritual” material a la the previously-featured Rockit Man, there’s also room for a few flat-out bangers like new single Drop It on the 1, a street-ready joint which sees DJ AmpLive‘s stark, syncopated synth-percussion grooves backing Zumbi and Grouch’s unchained lyrical onslaught. For those digging Drop It, plenty more bangers await on ZIon & Grouch’s second LP, released March 22, and out now online.
