Jason Griff and Alaska join us today with this new single titled “Human Zoo.”
In advance of their highly anticipated collaboration album, “Human Zoo,” Jason Griff and Alaska have opened up pre-orders and released the first single, an Orwell-inspired banger “Animal Farm” feat. Love, Ulysses.
“Human Zoo,” dropping September 3rd, is a musical examination of the cages we put upon ourselves and one another. It shines a light on modern society and the performative existence that we all partake in via social media. The album features collabs with Love, Ulysses and Fatboi Sharif as well as additional vocal cameos from Premrock, Alex Ludovico, Curly Castro, Rob Sonic, Breeze Brewin, Defcee, Zilla Rocca and Open Mike Eagle.
Alaska is in the midst of a rap career renaissance after a prolific run in the 2000s as part of Hanger 18, Atoms Fam and Def Jux. He is part of the wildly popular indie rap podcast Call Out Culture (with Zilla Rocca and Curly Castro), has released music as part of Cargo Cults (with Zilla Rocca), and has been featured on countless projects from other artists over the past few years. He and Jason Griff connected when collaborating on “Ode To Camp Lo” from Griff/Scorcese Midnight Express and “Adapt” from Griff’s Fireside Chats compilation.
They both felt an immediate chemistry in their art and quickly began collaborating on what has become Human Zoo. Griff is best known from his work with Alex Ludovico and the late Scorcese as owners of Insubordinate Records. He has also collaborated with artists such as Quelle Chris, Vic Spencer, Juga-Naut, billy woods and more.
