Hip-hop without the Universal Zulu Nation is like a box-cutter with no handle. Born as a positive response to negative societal elements that are as sharp and present now as they were back when boom bap first emerged, Zulu has maintained a Hub presence for years. This week, they announce a reinvigorated vision for their future in New England. Party-rocking courtesy of MC Spice, DJ Nomadik, DL, Dinco D, Dramatik, and DJ Diamond of The Executioners.
