Turntable Diaries…Gorilla Zoe: Fat Jesus

The title of the track is amusingly controversial, but the overall cut won’t keep people talking for long, unfortunately.

Atlanta rapper Gorilla Zoe has been an infrequent presence in the rap game over the last several years, following the release of a couple of instant southrn Hip Hop classics back in the mid-to-late 2000s, “Bottle Poppin'” and “Hood Nigga”. That’s unfortunate because he still has a solid underground following.

“Fat Jesus” is not one of his best tracks, but he gets a nod for not allowing himself to be labeled as one of many rappers with prior hits who have fallen completely off.

Overall, not a bad track but we need more from Zoe. But when longtime Zoe fans hear about a new Gorilla Zoe track, they instantly think “BANGER”.

Sadly, this ain’t that.

And maybe the matted wig he perhaps picked up from his friend Yung Joc’s hair salon is doing too much on this album cover too.

Verdict: 3 Turntables out of 5
