ZArtist: Z-Trip
Best Album: Shifting Gears (I guess)
Best Song: Breakfast Club
This Letter Could Have Been About: Uhhh… Arrested Development did a really good album called Zingalamaduni, but I think that’s probably cheating.

Why I’m Writing About This Artist: For the last, a first: Every individual person mentioned during this project has been an MC, not a DJ.  Z-Trip is the sole exception.  He’s a DJ, and he’s worked with everybody.  He’s also done a few solo albums, and by “solo albums” I mean he’s done Slash-style compilation albums where he produces beats for a bunch of other musicians who rap for him.  I don’t think he’s ever recorded a verse of his own, and if I’m being honest the only reason Shifting Gears is listed up there as his best album is that it’s the one that I own. I’ll stand by Breakfast Club, though, a collaboration with Murs and Supernatural about getting up early in the morning on Saturday and watching cartoons while eating cereal.  It’s fun, and as Murs says early in the song, if you can’t relate to this song, you’re taking shit too serious.

(This was fun.  I look forward to doing it again next year.)
