¡Mayday! Preps for the Apocalypse: "Party With Zombies Till Bodies Hit the Barricade"
How long till ¡Mayday!'s Wrekonize turns into a brain-gobbling walker?
Has the apocalypse been averted? Or are the end days still upon us?
The Mayans' calculations may have been a lil' off. But Miami hip-hop crew ¡Mayday! remains convinced that the Armageddon is imminent. Specifically, a rotting plague of walking corpses hungry for human flesh.
And the ¡Mayday! plan for survival: "Party with the zombies till the bodies hit the barricade."
Gettin' ready for this apparently inevitable undead rager, the whole crew -- Wrekonize, Bernz, Plex Luthor, Gianni Cash, Lt. Hopkins, and Nonymous -- has hooked up with host DJ Green Lantern to put together a 25-track, 78-minute "Apocalypse soundtrack."
It's a mixtape titled Smash and Grab, presented by Strange Music and Monster Energy Drink, just loaded with hyperactive, red-eyed musical mayhem co-starring Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock, SpaceGhostPurrp, and other hard-core preppers.

Also, because ¡Mayday! (despite digging zombie parties) truly believes in the ultimate perpetuation of mankind, this shit's free.
Moreover, Wrek, Bernz, and the rest have just dropped the official vid for Smash and Grab's "The Barricade," basically an audio-visual document of life in the land (i.e. Miami) where brain-eaters on bath salts already roam the streets.
But yeah, don't worry ... "No zombies were hurt in the making of this video."
