WIN TICKETS TO: ZION IPosted by Gabriel Arguelles
Zion I is Chop Suey on Saturday. We’re thrilled about this show, but it’s criminal that Zion I doesn’t pack stadiums. They raise the hip-hop standard to a higher plane and they deserve mainstream recognition for it.
They’ve touched the mainstream, and maybe felt a little bit of payoff when they collaborated with Linkin Park a few years ago on “Plc.4 Mie Hæd” off of the Reanimation remixes record they released while on their Hybrid Theory tour. After that, though, they remained a revered and influential part of the West Coast hip-hop underground, which is a benefit to us because it provides us the opportunity to watch them in more intimate settings.
In 2009 Zion I released The Take Over to positive reviews and since then AmpLive has released his solo Murder at the Discotech and Zion I has released “digital box set” The Alpha, an enormous best of download available on iTunes.
You can check out this fantastic show, and you don’t have to have any money to do it with: SSG has a pair of tickets for the show to give away to one lucky reader to see Zion I, AmpLive, and Ryan Lewis.
