Background-

Following the release of As Promised (Download HERE), the Zips ran into a dilemma- the songs 48 Bars of Terror, Karate School, and War were all planned for the eventual album, but as a group, we had decided to change some of the other songs we recorded which would push back the Album’s completion, making those songs stale.

In the interim, M-Lito decided to send us a series of beats for us to go thru and choose for the album. Lito ended up sending us 100 or so beats (seriously, he wasn’t playing, lol)–We ended up replacing 5 songs total (i’ll probably release those demos at another date) for the album, but we had so many beats that a ton of ideas started getting bounced between the three of us- Radio-ready songs, Mafioso ideas, and more experimental songs. Unfortunately, none of the songs FIT the album concept, and yet we still wanted to do them.

The conclusion- DO THEM!!!

So, we switched gears- Three EPS to show our range as artists, then our album, which won’t sound like ANY of those projects!

Genius, right?

Lifestyle Music EP (note: This is part of the actual e-mail we sent back and forth)

The EP(S)-

I like Litos ideas, but lets switch courses. I wanna do this “Ballerific” EP. I wanna go over the top– I’m talking speedboats driven by Halle Berry with no top on, doing donuts in the Aston Vanguish in a Hospital Zone, lighting Cuban Cigars with $100 Bills and whatnot. Like, seriously, I’m gonna be listening to Esco era and In My Lifetime 1 for the next couple of weeks to get into character- S Money Stacks and Don Vincenzo. I think the first beats you sent over go with that.

“Ballerific EP”- Beats

Flyin- Million Dollar Budget
So Maybe- Doing Great
Mind is On- Money on My Mind
I Pick You- Cold Champagne and Kush Smoke
Writer- Donald Trump Status ( I got a hook for this)

Anyway, thats just about it– We stayed very close to our ideas and didn’t change too many ideas of concepts. We had a couple different ideas for Hooks for Donald Trump Status (we went with Lito’s), Million Dollar Budget (we went with SPITGAME’S) and Money on My Mind (We went with mine)– maybe I’ll up those recordings if people are interested. We had a lot of fun with this project tho, and we all think its the weakest of the three EPs we are working on, and NONE of the EPs will be close to the quality level of Black SuperHero Music.

Last thing, check out the return of Lightweightheavy Radio this Sunday at 5pm to hear the ENTIRE Lifestyle Music EP before the release date September 12th, 2011.
