Onplanetzu but known to the world as Zu from Jamaica Queens, son of a preacher growing up in a strict religious upbringing, ran way at age 13 to Los Angeles California. Growing up in the worst neighbourhood the rolling 60’s gang, two blocks from where legendary rapper Nipsey Hussle died.I had a mindset not to follow or to get involved with gangs because i never wanted a boss or leader to be able to rule my life.
I always had an intuitive skill set for music we could only listen to Gospel music when I was younger and the sounds and tones would always stay in my head.
One day a friend of mind took me to my first concert it was Chuck D of Public Enemy, after watching the God on stage I was hooked, From that moment on I studied everything that man did he was a huge inspiration in my Life.
I then began looking up all colourful rappers who i loved like Krs one, Busta Rhymes, Old Dirty Bastard, Missy Elliott they are who influence me and I loved that they all went against the grain. So till this day that’s what separated me from all the other artists, i dont sound like nobody and i dont do the trends, I like to create my own personal style like no others.
I have over 1.2 millions views on my outrageous videos, i am the first person to ever put out a hiphop rock metal mix tape, i do everything from hiphop, trap,edm, rock, drum bass, R&B and Reggae.
One Night we were at a Prince Club in Downtown LA, We played for Prince’s Birthday on June the 7th with R&B group TLC. Prince came back stage in his High Heels on with is Huge Body Guard points at me, looks me right in the eyes with a straight Face and says keep doing what your doing these Motherfuckers are going to Fall in Love with you then walks away before I could even respond, that stayed with me for life he was one person that had a huge influence on my life and Music. I couldn’t believe it and I’m honoured that he said that.
I have since released singles, 2 million hits on sound cloud my newest single called West Cola was inspired by my friend who is no longer with us. Ol dirty bastard from Wu tang he use to yell in the beginging of his Wu tang song so in honour of him i did that in the beging of my song and the lyrics was East Coast bars i had to get a West Coast rapper on there to set it off and to bring back dope beats and fresh rhymes.
I feel music these days is to saturated so me as artist i can change that.
I have songs in the upcoming Tv series on Paramount called The Game, I wrote Me, myself and and you can also catch another song on the All America Homecoming tv show called Drop it. A Radio station in London England pick up another song of mine Called Speakers it stayed on the Charts for 23 weeks with over 50,000 steams, 463,4k plays Received 3 Indie Award of the Year3.
