With rap music suddenly bombarding listeners with tales of gun play and big pimpin some people have been looking for something, anything, with a message. People have latched on to MCs that aren’t necessarily socially conscious, but dub them so as they are at least slightly different from the norm. For those individuals who are looking for a little social consciousness in their music, for those individuals looking for an album that may spark a thought other than “let’s get another drink,” in steps Shadow Zu. Shadow Zu is a crew of MC’s, singers and reggae artists who have created their own form of African influenced Hip-Hop that integrates multiple forms of music and, for the most part, focuses on social and political issues effecting both the artists and listeners.
