Black Hippy – Zip That, Chop That

Black Hippy – Zip That, Chop That

Black Hippy – Zip That, Chop That

Before great child, m.a.a.d city, Oxymoron and the general standard ubiquity of Top Dawg Entertainment, Jay Rock, ScHoolboy Q,

Kendrick Lamar and Ab-Soul shaped hip jump’s most encouraging supergroups. While the possibility of a Black Hippy collection

has pulverized, there are as yet the uncommon events when every one of the four individuals are on a similar melody. During the

current week’s TBT, we return to one of Black Hippy’s most outstanding minutes as a gathering on “Zip That, Chop That.”

The most fascinating piece of Black Hippy is that every one of the four individuals have differing styles that function admirably

together. On “Zip That, Chop That,” every part flexes their expressive capacities. Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock, ScHoolboy and Ab-

Soul swap verses forward and backward. Every part quality is featured on this melody in it’s rawest frame. This melody preceded

Interscope and real marks had anything to do with them.

While we may never get a Black Hippy venture later on, there are as yet the couple of jewels they’ve deserted before they turned

into the TDE we know today.
