A message from zContent:
My family immigrated from Belarus to Canada when I was only 2 years old. At that time we had very little money, so my parents were constantly working and we ate food from the food banks on many occasions.
Apart from that, I had a relatively normal childhood - getting into trouble at school, scraping my knees doing stupid shit, and exploring the world around me with wonder.
I started rapping when I was 11 years old, after hearing 50 Cent's Straight to the Bank. From that point on you could find me rapping with one of my friend's in class, rapping at home in the shower, and rapping myself to sleep.
I wrote my first EP when I was 12, but it was only years later, at the age of 21, that I realized this craft was my calling. As a result, I started taking rap seriously and have since collaborated with artists like Jellifish, Spitty, Young Manny, & MusicByDarcy.
Notable accomplishments: Publicly opening up about my struggles with addiction by releasing my first official EP "The Re-Up". It's been a sustained growth process from then on.
What am I Doing Nowadays?: CLICHE ALERT! Currently working on my sound to make the best darn music I can.
