It’s been a year since Flatbush Zombies let loose their debut album, 3001: A Laced Odyssey. The Brooklyn hip-hop outfit is marking the occasion today by releasing a previously unheard song called “Babel”.
Here on the melancholy cut, all three MCs can be heard taking turns on the mic, commenting on the police, crowded prisons, and all kinds of drugs. “Alter perceptions, reality of questions/ Psychedelic mushrooms, DMT sessions/ I’m on another trip, ain’t gotta get to stepping,” Zombie Juice rhymes. “Your windows in your eyes, the door to perception/ Broken homes, broken souls/ Hurricanes, overdose.” In addition to a verse, the CoSigned group’s own Erick “The Architect” Elliot handled the production.

“Babel” follows “Aries”, Flatbush Zombies’ intense, socially conscious single released back in November.
