Another piece off of Classic Drug References. The Leimert Park Afro-Futurist Ras_G scoops up the young electronic shaman Zeroh for “Yumshit.” A bit out of focus and dusty, this is suitable for very loud volumes and open consciousness.
from the liner notes:
“Ras_G and Zeroh were one of the last additions to the puzzle. I first met _G in the MySpace era, looking for interesting folks to interview for my blog. I was spending a few weeks in LA before heading back to school in San Diego for the fall. I messaged _G and asked for an interview. He succinctly accepted, asking only that I bring trees. I met him at Poo-Bah Records in Pasadena and drove him back home to South Central before our interview and an intensive crash course in backwoods.

I was unexcited by new MC’s. After spending the preceding years listening to rap cats like Blu, Danny Brown and Jay Electronica, I was increasingly underwhelmed by most new cats I was hearing. However, from the first time I pressed play on “Peace and Light,” Zeroh held my attention and commanded my respect. Some cats spend a career trying to master their voice and delivery in a way that is intrinsic to this young Jedi.
Towards the end of production on this project a song I’d planned to include fell through. I was stressing. I took a trip to LA hoping to find a solution. I paid another visit to _G at Poo-Bah’s and serendipitously he began telling me how he was finally warming up to working with MCs and was particularly excited by Zeroh, calling him a new-age Divine Styler. He passed me a very rough mp3 of a track the two had done. Zeroh’s vocals were deep in the mix but felt perfectly at home. A short conversation later and problem solved.”
