Flatbush Zombies Discuss the State of New York Hip-Hop

The East Coast trio accepts that they don't fit the typical music formula for radio plays

Brooklyn rappers Meechy Darko, Zombie Juice, and Erick Arc Elliott—collectively known as Flatbush Zombies—chatted with host DJ SKEE on the set of SKEE TV about their place within New York's hip-hop scene.

"Competition doesn't matter," says Elliott. "What are we competing over? We competing over who loves you the most? What really matters is that you are doing stuff that influences people to do better."

That's not to say that the trio doesn't appreciate respect, as they have worked hard for their achievements.

Despite their success, Flatbush Zombies have yet to break into mainstream radio. On the state of New York hip-hop, Darko asserts, "There's a formula that they use on the radio to brainwash you, and we just don't fit into that formula right now. One day, we might."

"We weren't the typical, I guess, New York rappers—whatever that means. I still don't understand what that means."
