Zero Plastica is an underground Hip-Hop group from Genoa (Italy), formed by Nio (mc, dj and producer) and Lure (mc): they combine conscious and thought-provoking lyrics with rap, reggae dancehall beats and world music.
Since 2001, Zero Plastica released dozens demos, mixtapes, collabos and a well-critically-acclaimed indipendent record, the self-titled "Zero Plastica", in 2005.
Zero Plastica performed live hundred times, opening every Italian rap-stars showcase and so many international artists (such George Clinton with Funkadelic & Parliament, Shaggy, Signmark, Sud Sound System, Busta Flex, etc.), and playing everywhere from club to block-parties.
In 2011 Zero Plastica is the first Italian rap group ever to sign to an American indie label, releasing their new record -"Basta!", that means "Enough!"-, an awesome revolutionary cd against the corrupted gevernament and 100% true life story collection. This brand new - long awaited - critically acclaimed cd features also the Tunisian mc G.O.Man Xtarzik (Rebel Records) and is mastered at the Notable Productions (Boston, U.S.A.) by Dan Cantor. Now Zero Plastica is finding its place into the world wide underground, carring the Italian rap flag to the next level.
