The Flatbush Zombies are content with where they are, although the city may change from minute to minute. While the Brooklyn-based trio of Meechy Darko, Zombie Juice and Erick Arc Elliott may hail from New York's Flatbush borough, the zombies have belonged to the world since they began consistently circling the globe with a schedule of non-stop tour dates following the release of their first spastic mixtape in 2012. International D.R.U.G.S. to today's 3001: A Laced Odyssey.

And it's their frenzied live show, packed with sweaty crowd-surfing and dangling rafter-swinging, that took them from the New York hip-hop underground to world-renowned as the most consistent current trio in rap. So despite a four-year trek from city to city, the Flatbush Zombies don't take a single stage for granted. Just one ticket to the show - any show - will make that clear.

I swear you guys have been touring the world non-stop for the past five years. How do you physically do it? What are your survival tactics at this point in your career?

Meech: The same survival tactics you probably have at home when you’re sitting on the couch doing nothing. Drink a lot of water, eat food and do what you love. It’s not really that hard. We’d be idiots if we complained about traveling the world and performing our music. If you get tired from performing your music and traveling the world, then you should be a ni**a that sits on the couch.

Erick: (Starts reciting lyric from 'This Is It') 'Don't be chilling on the couch…"

What was the last thing you did when you had time to yourself, not on tour?

Juice: Eat Thai food.

Meech: Not on tour? Cry.

What do you value most about the time you spend on tour, even after all this time?

Erick: That I'm doing it with my friends and I’m not some corporate yuppie that has to work with people I don't like, and tour with weird people that I don't know.

How do you keep things fresh on stage?

Meech: We take showers. Lots of showers before the show.

Juice: Good vocals.

Erick: Kosher meals.

Meech: Franco. Cowboy.

What did fans expect to see from you this time around during your headlining UK dates?

Erick: Those were like my favorite shows. Starting in London. It was lit. It was super fire. Any time we go to UK it’s always a really good run. The fans are turned up. That's it.

Earlier this year, you released your debut album. Now that you’ve had time to reflect on that experience, what did that milestone teach you about where you plan to go as a group?

Erick: I think to release a debut album with no features, and no help from super rich or super prestigious people is a big milestone that says a lot. You have three people who really don’t need too many things outside of what we’ve got. And we proved that with our album. It was really successful, just wait for the next one.

What was the most rewarding part about the release of 3001: A Laced Odyssey?

Juice: The look on all the fan’s faces when they were happy that they received new, amazing music. And debuting at number 9 (on the Billboard Top 200 charts)? Damn right.

Recently, Meech tweeted "It's almost like not being a MC is the New Thing." To you, what will Flatbush Zombies always represent, artistically? As of now, what’s the legacy?

Meech: I mean. I don’t fucking know. We represent ourselves. That’s what we represent. Being ourselves. And not being afraid to be yourselves. And I don’t remember the other part of the question.

Erick: What will we represent artistically and what’s our legacy?

Meech: I think our legacy is for somebody else. That’s when they give us a lifetime achievement award. You’re supposed to tell me what our legacy is. You know. Can’t really tell you. Hope that didn’t sound like some asshole shit.

Juice: We could tell you whatever the fuck we want to tell you.

And what else do you want to tell me?

Meech: Yeah. Watch Mr. Robot. My friend is on it. Christian Slater and Joey Bada$$.

Juice: Shout out Christian Slater and Joey Bada$$.
