Zulu Debut “Fakin’ Tha Funk (You Get Did)” Music Video


Los Angeles powerviolence/hardcore group Zulu have debuted the track “Fakin’ Tha Funk (You Get Did)” off of their forthcoming album “A New Tomorrow“. Flatspot Records have a February 27th release date set for that 15-song effort.

Regarding what you can expect on that new effort, vocalist Anaiah Lei had the following to share:

“While our past material was a more direct approach and very in your face about the treatment of black individual’s around the world, I wanted to step away and express the love and beauty of us. That through all the hard things we go through, that’s not just what we are and it doesn’t define us. Our culture is so rich and vast, and I couldn’t even begin to explain all of that. But some of the topics that make this record include unity and love in the community and hope for ourselves.”

As for this new single from it, Lei offered:

“Everyone wants to be black, but nobody really wants to be black. People take from our culture, use our language and surround themselves with people from the culture which in turn makes them believe they are a part of it. Those that will benefit from it when people in our community are looked down upon for being how they were born.”
