Hip Hop My Way sat down backstage with rap trio Flatbush Zombies, for an exclusive interview at the sold out KYSS Concert in Williamsburg Brooklyn. The goal of KYSS is to raise awareness about the importance of getting tested and knowing your status.
Erick “Arc” Elliott wanted everyone to know why this project was important to the group saying,
“It was a good cause so I wanted to do it and these guys wanted to do it as well. We wanted to do something for a change. It’s not about just us about us looking cool.”
The Flatbush Zombies joined popular artists A$AP Ferg, Bodega Bamz, Po Johnson and International DJ/Producer Zeke Thomas on stage, to entertain thousands of fans that took a free HIV test to get exclusive access to the show.
The Zombies made it clear that AIDS awareness has come a long way in the Hip Hop World, saying,
“Kids actually got tested to come to this show and thats a big deal to me. A rapper never forced me to get tested to see a show!”
