Zumbi from the rap crew Zion I is one of the best rappers living in the bay today. Their dope beats and positive, fun, wise lyrics have taken them across the globe. Along his travels Zumbi has studied deeply, the art of Ta Chi, Buddhism and African Traditional spirituality. We specifically talk about Zion I's 2012 Shadowboxing release and where he was at psychologically and philosophically.
In this episode we talk about the impact of those studies on his art, the general state of Hip-Hop and how it impacts race relations in America . We also talk about the impact of Kung-Fu films affected so many in the Hip-Hop community (especially Black men) Plus we talk about race in the UFC, Jonnny "Bones" Jones cocaine situation and what that means for the UFC.
From there we talk about everything from pros and cons of the vegan lifestyle, as well as other health and diet methods. Zumbi also shares his favorite Kung-fu films as well as his thoughts on Bobby Shmurda and the impact of mainstream radio on young minds.
It goes down heavy in this episode. So if you are super sensitive and can't deal with the real go somewhere else. This is BC where its our job to make sure you #LearnSomethingNew
