eMCee Killa and Grim Reaperz combine to bring you their
brand new project ZAPATISTA. Dervied from the Zapatista

enlighten people of their existence.

11 tracks produced entirely by Grim Reaperz with features from Si Philli (PLC), Theme (Real Talk
Records), Phoenix Da Icefire (Triple Darkness), Manage and Amy True (Caxton Press), Mouse Hughes

Zapatista – a word which stems from a revolutionary group in Mexico who made their mark in 1994 by
occupying native territory under threat from starvation due to crippling trade agreements.
Hopefully the above begs the question – what the hell has this got to do with two Hip-Hop artists (eMCee Killa
and Grim Reaperz) from England and France?
Well, simply its used as frame of mind or a form of empowerment which is what the album aims to do
throughout, empower. The album title is a strong word associated with taking control and believing in yourself.
Aside from the politics though, this is very much a Hip-Hop album and an explosive one at that. Both artists
have worked on collaborations together prior to this album, most notably the track “Let me be Misunderstood”
which featured on the album “Just Listen” produced entirely by Crown on Just Listen records.
So, what to expect from this album? Hip Hop beats with that Grim Reaperz signature making sure no sound
wave is neglected, blended with the poetical structure of Killa’s lyrics the listener is provided with scene after
scene of places to take their mind with displays of production and vocal prowess added to topics of Insanity,
history, embarrassment, war, peace and calm. Available from 24.04.2015
