The Flatbush Zombies and their diehard fanbase are doing their part to help those suffering through the longstanding clean water crisis of Flint, Mich. Meechie Darko posted a message to social media on Monday challenging fans to bring cases of bottled water to their Detroit, Michigan tour stop today (May 15) at the Royal Oak Theater in exchange for signed posters from the trio to the first 250 people to make donations.
The group’s official Instagram reposted the message as well yesterday. “Michigan, we are asking our fans to please bring a case of water to the show at the Royal Oak Theater to help with water issues in Flint. The first 250 fans with cases will receive a signed show FBZ poster! Thank you,” the handwritten note reads.
The Zombies kicked off their See You In Hell Tour last month with an energetic Coachella set and have brought Pro Era’s Kirk Knight and Nyck Caution along for the extended journey across North America, which culminates in San Francisco, Calif. on June 16.
The trek comes in support of the trio’s sophomore studio album Vacation in Hell. Released on April 6, the 19-track effort boasts features from some of hip-hop’s royalty such as Jadakiss, Bun B, Denzel Curry, Nyck Caution and others. Production on the project doesn’t disappoint and finds the likes of Erick the Architect, Tyler Dopps and Hector Delgado behind the boards, to name a few.
The New York squad joins a laundry list of hip-hop artists that have come to the repeated aid of the Flint community over the past few of years after it was revealed the city’s water was tainted with lead and other toxic chemicals. The list includes The Game, Vic Mensa, Wiz Khalifa, Big Sean, DJ Mustard, Eminem, Pusha T and Diddy to name a few.
