Z-Ro: New Sh*t


If you don’t like Z-Ro’s new music, you can go back and jam his old stuff. The Houston rap icon has been putting out ghetto classics for nearly two decades now and holds a vault full of tracks to bang. But, the Mo City Don will be the first to tell you, he doesn’t care if you listen to his music at all. He’s still going to do what he wants while his haters are just going to do what they can. This is the sentiment Z-Ro, the self-proclaimed ‘King of the Ghetto’, paints across his new video, ‘New Shit’, off his most recent album, Drankin & Drivin. Z-Ro has mastered the ability to rap with rhythm often singing his lyrics through sophisticated, baritone vocals separated by sweeping hooks of bluesy attitude. Considered one of the realist rappers in the game, Z-Ro, born Joseph Wayne McVey, takes reality rap to a whole new level dishing lyrics that mesh aggressive with poetic. His ‘New Shit’ is just as moody and intimidating as we would expect from the Mo City Don. The track strolls along cruisin’ at a leisurely pace with continuous, rumbling bass as Ro lounges around his home counting cash or hangs at the car shop…still counting his cash. Hey, he’s just gotta get that money, mayne. Check out the video below.
