Zion I & The Grouch – Heroes In The Healing Of The Nation album review

This album reminds me of my younger days, when all I wanted for lunches were peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. No matter what you do, you cant screw it up.

This is way better than your T-Pain, Radio Killa auto-tune crap. However, even though I couldn’t attach myself to a lot of the songs, I did find myself listening to the same songs over and over again, a lot of them had captivating beats and depth lyrically. If you want Zion I to give you a complete rundown of what is happening in our lives, and the non-sense that a lot of people get caught up in then you must listen to “Frankenstein,” it Literally sums up the average life for a lot of our youth.

After listening and listening I started to notice a trend; not a single song had a negative vibe, it either spoke the truth and told a story, or it was about being positive. “Journey To Forever” and “Be a Father To Your Child” are both songs that happen everyday in the world. “Journey To Forever” is about elevating your life and extracting all evils. Isn’t that what life is about? Being happy and enjoying life? Not to mention this entire album had not a single “bad” word. How often do you hear that? Besides radio edited versions of your favorite songs and Christian hip-hop what else can you let your kids listen to?

Initially I had no intention of giving this album a chance, but I popped it in and “Leader” came on. Normally, I’m all about the the “thug” life gangster rap music. But something kept me listening, so I gave it a thorough chance. I highly recommend “Heroes In The Healing Of The Nation” and it’s songs. Those that I mentioned are just the tip of the iceberg.
