Tomorrow: Zion I worth the trip

By Jose Gutierrez Jr., M.Ed. on February 6, 2014

If REAL hip-hop DOES continue to survive by the skin of its teeth then Zion I represents the last of the enamel. Always pushing the game in a forward/advanced/innovative direction, Zion I are truly one of hip-hop's saviors. With a sound all their own, yet paying homage to the greats of hip-hop lore from Too $hort to Afrika Bambaataa, Zion I are the epitome of hip-hop - intelligent and DOPE. Lucky for you, they'll be pushing their uncut brand of dope Friday at The Crocodile in Seattle. Quit being lazy and get a dose.

ZION I, 8 p.m., Friday, Feb. 7, all ages, The Crocodile, 2200 2nd Ave., Seattle, $15,206.441.4618
