Zion I & The Grouch – “Rockit Man” Feat. Silk-E

With their brand new sophomore album, Heroes In The Healing Of The Nation, all ready for release tomorrow, Zion I & The Grouch are happy to unveil their latest video, for the single “Rockit Man” featuring Bay Area singer/rapper Silk- E, presented by Matt Hobbs of Vital Films and directed by Robyn Twomey. As might have been hoped, the newly released “Rockit Man” music video finds Z&G utilizing the planets, stars, and other elemental imagery to compliment the tracks delightfully spacey tonalities. Also, shot completely in black-and-white, there’s an added touch of meditation, which compliments the songs central theme of transcendence.

In addition to releasing the new video, Zion I & The Grouch just wrapped up three packed days of shows at SXSW, including their late addition to the Audible Treats 2nd Annual Hip-Hop Showcase, performing as one of the showcase’s headline acts in front of a capacity audience at The Scoot Inn. Following the performance, Zion I & The Grouch kicked off their nationwide tour with a sold out show at San Francisco’s historic Fillmore Auditorium. Full dates below for the rest of the tour can be found below.
