The year 2016 proved to be potent for Mike Zombie, having dished out two projects in the span of 12 months, with his solo effort Humble Genius and his joint effort, Ea$tside Story, with whom he collaborated with hometown comrade Benzi Ayo. The Willingboro, NJ native, popularly known for his OVO alliance, has successfully stamped his handle into rap as of late, showing that his talents not only lie in the soundboard on a producer tip, but also as a bonafide hip-hop artist.
Today, he treats us to an exclusive premiere of his latest release “Paradise City.” Inspired by the Guns N’ Roses hit “Paradise City,” the song’s signature line: “Take me down to the paradise city where the grass is green and the girls are pretty,” carries listeners on a roam through Mike’s retrospection. Delivering flying bars atop a multicolored production, a sample from Stranger Thing‘s “No Autopsy,” Mike paints the picture of life over the past year. When the gravity of life’s emotions become weighing, Mike packs up his bags and parts to “Paradise City.”
