Zebra Katz – Ima Read (Feat. Njena Reddd Foxxx)
My friend told me to have a butchers at an Artist called Zebra Katz from Brooklyn, NY.
I didn’t know what to expect at first but I came across a tune with Njena Reddd Foxxx called ‘Ima Read’
The beat is very minimal and dark with a pulsating syncopated bass couple with stripped down repetitive lyrics which makes for a very catchy tune, hallmarks of an underground smash and cross-over hit.
It has already caused a stir with Fashion Designer Rick Owens actually played this tune on repeat for one of his shows and it-girl rapper Azealia Banks DJing the track at Karl Lagerfeld’s party earlier this year.
The tune is actually an ode to the New York ballroom scene that originated in the 1980s, rather than that of an education which at first one might think. With the term ‘reading’ meaning to insult someone cleverly.
