Zion I

A hip-hop duo from Oakland, California, Zion I is composed of MC Zumbi and producer/DJ AmpLive. Starting their music career in 1997, Zion I (pronounced Zion eye) has drawn comparisons to The Grouch, Eligh, Living Legends, Blue Scholars, The Crest and Brawdcast.

Zion I started their own label called Live it Up Records

Check out these videos of a handful of their songs.

"Coastin" is by far their most famous song at this point in their career.

Both The Grouch and Mister F.A.B. are featured in this video.

The baseline in this song is amazing. You have to wait until Brother Ali comes in and tears it up! Best verse hands down.
