Massachusetts Recording Artist The ZYG 808 Releases Some New Heat!
LISTEN TO NOT PREPARED HERE!
Two-time Grammy-nominated recording artist and producer The ZYG 808 is back with a brand new track entitled, “Not Prepared”. Self-produced, the track is backed by a hard hitting bassline and a gorgeous melody which The ZYG 808 rides perfectly, bar after bar. On the first verse he raps; “In the vocal booth in the middle of a thunderstorm, getting new ideas every time I go to press record / Thankful for my family they protect me like a ninja sword, going up in flames like a glitch up in the circuit board”.
The ZYR 808 definitely doesn’t hold back when it comes to his lyrical ability. In a watered down hip hop world where dope lyrics usually don’t get the respect they deserve, you might not be ready for The ZYG 808’s sick pen game. There’s only one way to find out; press play and find out exactly what your ears have been missing, musically. Now that you’ve been warned…you won’t be able to say that you’re not prepared.
Not Prepared is now available on all platforms.
