Oakland duo Zion I come through with their latest project, The Masters of Ceremony. A five-track EP, including "Thin Ice" produced by CunninLynguists' Kno, from emcee Zumbi and producer AmpLive.
The Masters of Ceremony is the first EP in a series created to fortify the cultural aspects of Hip Hop. We took it back to ground zero in creating these songs. The sole purpose of the MC is to energize, invigorate, and guide the listener to a higher state of mind, whether that be reflection, relaxation or enlightenment. This is the culture and not the business of Hip Hop, to serve as a tuning fork to the emotions, that we may contemplate our current state collectively and forge our collective destiny with heightened perspective. A lot of people MC, but many have no idea what it really means. - Zumbi
