Listen to Zoocci Coke Dope’s New 3-Track EP ‘HE-ART’

A year since the release of his debut EP, Zoocci Coke Dope releases new music.

South African rapper, singer and producer Zoocci Coke Dope recently released a 3-track EP titled HE-ART. The project comes approximately a year since the artist released his debut EP Morning Star.


"Runaway," the opening song of HE-ART sees King ZooLoo experiment with a higher tempo rhythm. "FWM" and "Trust Issues" are Zoocci as we've grown to know him—with minimalist trap production and sincere lyrics and delivery.

Lyrically, it makes sense why the project is called HE-ART as the artist croons about a breakup on "Trust Issues" and getting it on, on "FWM." And the appearance of the singer KLY on the latter is a pleasant surprise. "FWM" is definitely a standout.

Zoocci Coke Dope has had a busy few years since showing up in the scene. He has produced for and collaborated with the likes of Big Star, A-Reece, Flame, Stogie T, Yung Swiss, and is currently signed to the indie label Vth Season.

Listen to HE-ART below and revisit our interview with Zoocci from last year here.
