"I can't speak for everybody else, but I don't want nobody in my pocket, nobody in my mind, nobody telling me what to do," says Juice from Flatbush Zombies after Elliott Wilson inquired about his rap group's decision to remain independent. I couldn't agree more with what the wild-bearded spitter stated—why would an artist want to be handcuffed to a major label when there are a number of ways (in this digital age) that he/she can "pop" independently?
This is just one of the many thought-provoking questions asked by Mr. Wilson during an interview with the Brooklyn Rap trio on his new show, Car Test. Not familiar with the Tidal original series? Well, each segment showcases the respected Hip Hop journalist riding around with a musical guest as he listens to and discuss their most recent body of work. The program's latest episode, featuring the Zombies, is the first that was taped in New York City.
While cruising through my old stomping grounds of Flatbush in a dollar van (true BK heads know about those), Meech, Erick Arc Elliot and Juice previewed their phenomenal sophomore album, Vacation In Hell.
