Seattle rappers Onry Ozzborn and JFK, together known as Grayskul, are soon to drop their upcoming album Zenith, an eighteen track set featuring Aseop Rock, Wu Tang Clan member Raekwon, Solilla, and Reva DeVito, among others. To hype the upcoming album drop they have released the title track single, also titled “Zenith”.

Onry and JFK have been collaborating since way back, when both were originally part of the Pacific Northwest rap collective Oldominion. The duo released the title track from their upcoming album on Complex, although the version premiered on Complex does not feature Wu Tang Clan member Raekwon, who will appear on the album version of the track.

Oldominion’s Smoke M2D6 originally produced the track for JFK’s solo project, but when the rapper showed it to his Grayskul partner in crime it was decided it would be a feature on their new album.

Onry says the challenge in making the song was “just knowing already, by hearing the beat that it would be the title track of the album…we had to make an epic hit of sorts and push to hit our own Zenith thus far to make it the best song it possibly could be.”

JFK tells says the inspiration behind the song was “My recovery. During the process of writing the entire record I was not drinking and had been sober for 6 months.”  He also lists his sobriety as one of the main challenges in making this album, saying he was “focused and sober and had the opportunity to write with such conviction and clarity which I enjoyed…we all know how challenging it is to fight our vices.”
