Because of its ruggedness, the album failed to be anything more than a strong cult classic. A year later, however, Zeebra got his first mainstream break when he was featured on Dragon Ash's mega 1999 hit single, "Grateful Days". Its poppy rap-rock sound revolutionized the Japanese mainstream music scene, and, not only made Dragon Ash bona fide superstars, but also Zeebra. In 2000, he signed with Polydor, and released his second album, "Based on a True Story". The album was a commercial smash, peaking at number 3 on the Oricon charts. From there on, Zeebra proved to be one of hip hop's major figureheads in Japan, and, along with Kreva, is one of the most commercially successful solo rappers in Japan today. « hide
