Zion I is mad “Fresh” in this VibesquaD remix

Zion I is the Bay Area-based rapper and production duo who’s been balancing the Bay’s energetic hip hop trends with brilliant lyricism. Today we’ve snagged a remix that brings rapper Zumbi into a whole new light.

This remix by VibesquaD feels mellow and chill, and the press release for this describes this as a trip through the California mountains, which couldn’t be more true. It further highlights how vastly underrated Zion I is outside of the bay, as his lyricism works perfect under the more funky, LA-type production.

For people in the Northern half of California, there will be an event at CSU Sacramento, and on Halloween there is Hella Fresh Fest in Oakland, featuring not just Zion I, butDizzy Wright and Grieves. For Oakland, this is a must attend event! More information can be found on his homepage.
