The name Zo! is one that SoulBouncers should be very familiar with. We have covered his music extensively over the years – from his solo efforts to his work with The Foreign Exchange and other artists – and evolved beyond fans into family. Zo! has a new album entitled Abstractions on the way in conjunction with Tall Black Guy that we already know will go into immediate heavy rotation based on the first two singles, “Talkin’ To Myself” and “Hold My Hand.”

Zo! + Sy Smith “Body Rock” (Acoustic version)

In our now 12+ years of working together, I think it’s safe to say by now that my sister Sy Smith and I have accumulated some gahtdamn jams. This one was written with our brother Phonte and closed out my 2013 album #ManMade.

Since it looks like we’re gonna be in the house for awhile, Sy and I decided to have some fun with it.  #ZoAndSySmith #Acoustic #AtTheCrib #CribJams #WeGonBeHereForAMinute
