According to the National Hurricane Center, there is a nasty bitch with one eye named Irene who's gonna come crashing through "the Southeastern...Central...and Northwestern Bahamas" today. She's a "category three hurricane." She's whipping up winds of 115 mph. And she's pissing "1 to 3 inches" of rain on any fool who gets in her way.
Tomorrow, Irene could be throwing her hissy fit in Miami. But Metro Zu ain't sweating that shit. In fact, Lofty, RubenSlikk, Freebase, and Mr.b the Poshstronaut have got a stiff message for this hard-blowing ho: "Fokk da hurricane!"
And instead of sitting at home watching the weather, the Zu crew's been spending the last few days getting ready for Crossfade Presents The Local with O'Grime, Metro Zu, and Chalk at The Stage.
