Eric B. & Brah-kim: A$AP Rocky, YG Addie & Flatbush Zombies - "Bath Salt" (Killa Beez Comp.)

I guess bath salts are a formidable, new substitute for getting "CRUNK" in today's Popular [Hip-Hop] Culture; Basically used to describe getting crazy/drunk @ a party... minus all the face-gnawing, bullet holes, carnage, nausea, and paranoia-enducing side effects, etc. A$AP Rocky and YG Addie A$AP Ant have enlisted the help of fellow Brooklyn area emcees, Flatbush Zombies for their latest track - "Bath Salts," which is seemingly the first cut from A$AP Mob's upcoming (untitled) Killa Beez-like group album. That very album will feature A$AP Rocky's complete, lesser-know Rap crew: A$AP Twelvy, Ant, Yams, Bari, Ferg, Ty Beats, Nast, and resident producer, Clams Casino. "Untitled" A$AP Mob comp. is rumored to see a proper release sometime before A$AP Rocky's debut record, LONGLIVEA$AP, which comes out on Sept. 11th (Polo Grounds). "Bath Salt" was produced by a up-and-coming young beatsmith who chooses to go by the mysterious stage name, P On The Boards.

I didn't even know it 'til about 1/2-way through their set, but I actually saw Flatbush Zombies open for Childish Gambino a few months ago up in North North Jersey. After self-generating a fair amount of online buzz, Meechy Darko & Zombie Juice finally decided to release their long-awaited premier mixtape, D.R.U.G.S. earlier in the week. It features production from Flatbush Zombies' honorary "third member," Eric Arc Elliott and dually showcases a batch of slightly re-mastered YouTube mini-hits: "Thug Waffle," "Face-Off," "Laker Paper," and "S.C.O.S.A." While the mixtape is a slightly rough listen @ times, Flatbush Zombies are definitely a promising young Rap crew... making clever puns and references to Al Bundy, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Face/Off [1997 film], Los Angles Lakers, Eggo Waffles, and Rebecca Black(?)
