Continuing FML’s 2017 New Year’s resolution of dropping a solo project from each member, February’s offering is the debut EP from the yung papi himself, Ziggy Zay. Four tracks of straight trap bangers, including the bouncy “Pablo Escobar” where Ziggy states “bad bitch & her ass thick, even my bitches be hustlin'”.
How did you choose the title of your project?
I chose to name my project ZIGG EP because obviously, it’s just an EP and if you say “ZIGG EP” fast it sounds like your saying “ZIGGY P”. The P is for “Papi” lol.
Can you explain the story behind your artwork and who is the designer?
We did a photoshoot with Luis Perez a couple weeks ago at the Paradice Avenue Souf Studio in Seattle. Dope ass studio, shout out to the homie Harry Clean for letting us use his space. I chose this shot specifically because my rapper pose is on a thousand lol. I put the cover art together myself with a little help from my bro Tre Ross. There isn’t much meaning behind the cover I just like the way it looks, shits lit!!
How long have you been working on this project?
I worked on this project for like a month. It’s a short four track EP but I created a lot of other tracks in the process. I am already working on my next project, you guys will hear those tracks for sure!!
Where was it recorded?
This project was recorded at my home studio. I mixed and mastered everything.
Who are the producers?
The first half of the project was produced by HustleTheGod & YUNG SVGE. I don’t personally know these producers but when I heard their beats I knew I had to get on!!! Tony Kalia produced the second half of the EP. It was dope watching him build everything from scratch!! He is a fucking beast.
Who was featured?
I featured my bros Tre Ross & Webbwavvy on the tape, they went in!!!!
What was your favorite track?
My favorite track is “Pablo Escobar” I really like the vibe of it, it’s upbeat, trappy and catchy.
Who would you like to thank for helping with this project?
I would like to thank all the people that have been bumpin’ my tracks, thanks for the likes and all the thesupport. Shouts out to the squaddy!! FINE MALT LYRICS.
