The album “Black Beach” is Detroit rapper ZotheJerk’s social commentary on the existence for many in today’s Black America written from his own experiences and cataloguing those of others.

Issues of police brutality, oppression and injustices are laid out like an open wound while balanced by the acceptance of the responsibility a positive paternal role model must shoulder to break the cycle of self inflicted urban decay. He offers messages of hope and aspiration, and walks the walk having received a “Humanitarian of the Year” award for mentoring work in the community.

Lyrically intense, the musical backdrop is provided by one of the fastest emerging producers in hip hop, NYC State’s Frost Gamble who is now resident in Winnipeg, Canada. The crate digger fuses jazz, soul, r&b and electronica for a contemporary take on traditional techniques, with some turntablism thrown into the mix.

US online “The Balcony Life Blog” have just published a review of the album which reflects these different ingredients, and acknowledging the pivotal role they play. Read what they have to say HERE

Meanwhile, Irish journalist Stephen Dorney has included the album in his Weekly Capsule Reviews series. Read his summary HERE

Releasing through 22 Entertainment on May 26th, and available to pre-order on iTunes, the album includes featured guest artists KXNG Crooked, Guilty Simpson, Boldy James, Sadat X, Tone Chop & Young Bleed.

Two singles have been released, “Risk vs Reward” ft Sadat X and more recently “My Negus” ft Guilty Simpson. Check the audio streams on Soundcloud
