Zeroh: Bang Babies

New music from the always intriguing Long Beach artist, Zeroh, as he sets his sights on a solo LP release in 2020. Zeroh first came on to my radar thanks to his verses on some of those early Jonwayne tapes, as well as an excellent contribution to Metabeats’ stunning Caviar Crackle LP. You might have also caught his recent feature on the second single from the forthcoming album from L’Orange and Jeremiah Jae. On Bang Babies we get to hear what appears on first listen to be a very relaxed Zeroh, as his bars meander over some stripped back production, but on closer inspection the intricacies of his rhyme schemes become ever more apparent. Bang Babies can be heard in full below and keep an eye out for more news on the album coming soon. Continue reading “Zeroh: Bang Babies”
