Rapper Lil Uzi Vert, forced to cancel his Montreux appearance, has been replaced by American hip-hop group Flatbush Zombies. This group will thus join Gucci Mane and Slimka, Di-Meh, Makala & Pink Flamingo.
On his doctor’s orders, Lil Uzi Vert must unfortunately cancel his European tour “due to exhaustion”. The Festival’s programmers have booked frenzied Brooklyn rap group Flatbush Zombies, who will join Gucci Mane and Geneva’s Slimka, Di-Meh, Makala & Pink Flamingo for the 100% hip-hop evening on Wednesday 5 July at the Montreux Jazz Lab.
Hypnotic and frenzied, the rhythmic universe of Flatbush Zombies is truly one-of-a-kind. This Brooklyn collective caused a sensation with their album 3001: A Laced Odyssey. While their attitude and the coherence of their productions bring back good memories from 1990s East Coast (specialists will think of Gravediggaz), their dynamic flow and incisive lyrics display a strong dose of daring.
