Multi-genre specialist Zion I (a former duo that is now comprised of sole member Baba Zumbi) brings his eclectic blend of rap, rock, reggae and EDM to Stateline for a can’t-miss performance this weekend.
“Since the release of the debut album ‘Mind Over Matter’ in 2000, Zion I has risen up the ranks of independent hip-hop to solidify their standing as one of the most prolific conscious rap groups of the past two decades.
“Boasting a catalog that consists of over two dozen albums, EPs, mixtapes and collaborations, Zion I (currently consisting solely of MC/producer Zumbi) continues to create inspired music influenced by social and political woes, personal challenges and triumphs, as well as family, spirituality and a raw perspective on the world at large,” states Zion I’s online biography.
The artist’s latest full-length record, “The Labyrinth,” continues the trend and was “fueled by [Zumbi’s] own personal losses as well as the current political and social climate of the world at large,” according to the bio.
Since this release, Zion I has dropped a handful of singles and EPs alike.
“Zion I continues to make music that, while left-of-center, is still relevant, fresh and exciting as ever,” continues the bio.
Tickets for the hip-hop gig — held Saturday, Dec. 16, at 9 p.m. — are available for $20 in advance and $25 on the day of the show.
Hard Rock Hotel and Casino is found at 50 U.S. 50 in Stateline.
