West Coast hip-hop stalwarts Zion I & The Grouch return with their sophomore collaborative effort Heroes in the Healing of the Nation. The long-awaited follow-up to the group’s 2006 critically acclaimed Heroes in the City of Dope could not arrive at a more fitting hour. This time around Z&G raise the stakes to expand the playing field from City to Nation, inviting listeners everywhere to join them on their quest in channeling their highest selves. Amp Live provides the bulk of the banging backdrops as Zumbi and The Grouch consciously kill it with a well versed ease.
Eligh has released over a dozen albums, and contributed on many more. Sometimes under the alias Gandalf, he has provided beats for rappers outside Living Legends crew, including Company Flow, Pigeon John, John Cena and Freestyle Fellowship. Eligh has been involved in a number of Living Legends offshoots as well, including Log Cabin, and The Righteous Brothers.
