Known for his quirky visual universe and his sultry, husky voice, "Ima Read" rapper Zebra Katz is back with new material, and he's ready to re-open the library.
"Tell these bitches not to fuck with me," Zebra Katz growls over a pounding bass in "You Tell 'Em," the first single off Nu Renegade, a collaborative EP made with London-based, Iranian artist and producer Leila, out now on iTunes. Katz shot the video in Iceland last fall, and the result is pretty mind-blowing.
According to Katz, they have completed three more videos to be released, and three additional videos are ready to be produced. The pair aims to roll out a new video each month.
The rapper also announced his European tour dates. Katz will be performing at Loud & Proud Festival in Paris, Lollapalooza in Chicago, and Austin Pride this summer, before the Nu Renegade Tour kicks off this fall.
