When The Source magazine (arguably one of the most trusted and respected publications in hip-hop) nominates your debut album as best independent album of the year, folks should pay attention.

And most of us hip-hop heads did just that back in 2000 when the Oakland duo (now just rapper Baba Zumbi) dropped their first record Mind over Matter.

Part of the the Greater Bay Area rap community, which includes Hieroglyphics (whose member Casual is on tour with Zion I), both rappers helped to contribute to the iconic West Coast hip-hop sound that continues to evolve and take shape, but still holds true to its early rap roots.

Catch both MCs at Paper Tiger on Sunday, Nov. 4 at Paper Tiger with "The Slap Frost" tour mates; Z-Man, Vocab Slick, DJ True Justice, Save1, DT The Artist, hosted by DJ Notion + Spy MC.
