Zulu Butterfly

ATU's "Yep" music video

Zulu Butterfly

He is a veteran freestyle dancer & ATU co-founder known as Zulu Butterfly. A man who's history with Abstract Rude is well documented, but who's artistic talents are still being realized to this day. Easily the most consistent freestyle dancer of his post era, Zulu enjoyed moderate major label & some indie success recording, touring & filming videos with Abstract Rude & Tribe Unique and recently w/ 1 of his favorite groups growing up X Clan. From ATU being signed to Beastie Boys' imprint Grand Royal by way of Capitol Records distro to Ab working with upstarts & eventual real players like Battleaxe & Rhymesayers, Zulu has been there all along, branding his original style of free movement, abstract poetry & unique fashion. His voice has been on classic ATU songs, leading him to finally venturing into recording his own forthcoming projects. Having never left the circle, Zulu the Butterfly has been recently spotted groovin at Beat Swapmeets, lp release parties with Ab Rude & Myka 9 and at Flow & Tell events. True to his metamorphosis nature to "Spread his Wings & Fly" he has become a certified fitness trainer, as well as a dance & light healer.
