Zakee returns with his latest single “Tippin” ahead of his forthcoming sophomore LP Rise Of The Rebels: Assimilations, due out this winter. The track – similar to the upcoming project – tackles addiction, injustice and love according to the gospel of gritty rhymes, driving electricity and the omnipresent 808 anchored by an ethereal hook. What you are hearing with “Tippin” is the emotional maturation of the trap. Zakee spoke on the project ahead of the single release:
Rise of the Rebels: Assimilations shows a side of me that only a select few get to see. This music represents my life growing up in West Philly while traveling around the world. My perspectives are a bit different but still grounded in the hood where I came from. It represents all those underdog moments of my life while paying homage.”
The project includes contributions from Ski Beatz, Prince Paul and Sisko. Check the track below to get a taste of Zakee’s single “Tippin.” Stay tuned for more from the Rise Of The Rebels: Assimilations LP, coming soon.
