Bad Ass Yellow Boyz

Ziplock Hip-Hop

Released February 2011

From the ghost of Christmas past–or I guess, 2011–here’s Bad Ass Yellow Boyz‘s debut full length, Ziplock Hip-Hop. This album launched the careers of three local hip-hop legends: Jarv Dee, Nacho Picasso and Steezie NASA. And it’s toe-tappingly good, every song a banger and the verses profane in just the right way: They give off the tough guy stance, but you’re well-aware they’re having a blast making these songs. The hit single “Fast Lane” is the one track you should not miss. Also, great trompe l’oeil cover by Tay Sean.
