Flatbush Zombies—BetterOffDEAD — 4stars

The Brooklyn, New York group’s second mixtape does not disappoint. The same haunting beats and cutting lyrics that made their first mixtape D.R.U.G.S. such a success are back for their sophomore effort, and they fit into the style better than ever before. Highlights from the tape include “Death”, “Palm Trees”, and “Thugnificense”. All the beats are done by producer/rapper Erik Arc Elliot, and his inclusion on the tracks helps him write excellent beats for the crew. Zombie Juice has improved from the first mixtape, and Meechy Darko remains consistently excellent. Despite the glowing review, I must warn that these guys are not for everyone. They don’t rap over bass-heavy beats about strippers like 2 Chainz, they are more dark and sinister. However, if you are fan of more underground rap like OFWGKTA or any member of the A$AP Mob (with whom which Flatbush Zombies have collaborated) you will thoroughly enjoy this mixtape and will definitely have it in heavy rotation over the next few weeks.
