Ever since I got on this forum, i've been telling people about Metro Zu and it's members, so I decided I should make a guide thread for getting into them. It's pretty hard to do it since alot of shit has been deleted and Lofty has like 70 tapes himself.
Who's Metro Zu?
Metro Zu is a group of artists that include Freebase (goes by the name of PX$H6XD now), Mr. B The Poshstronaut, Lofty305 and Ruben Slikk.
Notable Group Projects :
Mink Rug is the most 'raider-klan' like project of their whole discog. They have some Denzel features and a SGP one. It's pretty different from the rest of their other shit.
Metro Zu Ft. SpaceGhostPurrp - Mink Rug
Metro Zu Ft. Denzel Curry - Pantheon
Metro Zu - Sell Ma Ho
Kushpak 3 Vol.1
Kushpak 3 VOL 1 includes some of their more popular hits and it's one of the standouts in the Kushpak series.
Metro Zu - Cokyo, Japan
Metro Zu - McLean
Metro Zu - Drugz
Buddah Therapy is more of a chill project with some hype standouts, includes one of the best Ruben Slikk verses on the title track.
Metro Zu - Buddah Therapy
Metro Zu - Whitegirl
Metro Zu - Now-N-Later Kush
Individual Member Projects
Ruben Slikk is probably my favourite Metro Zu member. He's the best rapper of the group, has fun lyrics and a very distinct flow. In 2013 he was kicked out of Raider Klan for too much cocaine usage.
King AstroSlikk The Magnificent
This is one of my favourite albums of all time. Every song is special, it was made when Ruben Slikk was semi-sane too.
Ruben Slikk - THA SIGNS
Ruben Slikk - I SING 4 YOU
Ruben Slikk - LET ME IN
This album was made when Ruben was heavy on coke, it's not as good as Astroslikk but it's still a pretty good project.
Ruben Slikk - Intergallactic Shaman
Ruben Slikk - COKE N WET ft. Lofty305
Ruben Slikk - Ma Patna Dem
Slikk doesn't have many 'listenable' albums to the normal listener so here are some good songs from different projects.
Ruben Slikk - Catch Me With That Sack
Ruben Slikk - Wishbonez (From Kodeeen Mutantz)
Ruben Slikk - Charles Manson
Lofty305 is the brother of Slikk, and he has a bit more cloudy-rap sound than Ruben. He has alot of projects, so i'm gonna go through the best ones.
Yung Lean said Lofty was one of his main influences.
Haunted Clothes was Lofty's first 'real' debut tape. It has alot of great songs on it, showcasing Lofty's production skills.
Lofty305 - Billy And Mandy
Lofty305 - Castle In The Clouds
Lofty305 - Act Rite
Lofty305 - Feel
Vaglord features great beats and it's one of my fav lofty tapes.
Lofty305 - Jack Black
Lofty305 - Vibin With Tha Zu
Lofty305 - I Found God
The production is really jazzy and it's different from the usual lofty/metro zu style.
Lofty305 - Our Host
Lofty305 - HashPipeJazz
Lofty305 - movin
That's around it. I didn't include Mr.B or Freebase, as they usually have production only albums and features.
Hope you liked this shit.
