    Throwback: Zion I

    Throwback: Zion I

    This weekend we received the incredibly sad news that Stephen Gaines aka Baba Zumbi aka MC Zion passed away on August 13th, at the young age of 49. Our condolences and hearts go out to his family, friends, and close ones, especially Amp Live and Deuce Eclipse.

    Zumbi and Amp formed the group Zion I and released their debut album called Mind over Matter in the year 2000. They followed up with an impressive 12 albums as well as numerous collaboration albums, EPs, and features. In 2010, we recorded an interview with Zion I that we want to share with you to remember Baba Zumbi.

    We talk about how they met in College, their creative process of making an album, their inspirations, and their perspective on hip hop culture.

Great behind the scenes!

Awesome podcast to hear from people in and around the hip hop scene and some of their stories that aren’t always told in other mediums. Every episode is a treat!

AASafar ,

Eye opening

Great way to hear so many untold stories of hiphop artists! Open different perspectives about life in general and the path to passions!

Suzi Uzi SB ,

Thoughtful and interesting!

Great to hear all these stories. Rare to have such access into people’s journeys in today’s hip hop community and not as part of a historical documentary.
