INSPIRED 2 INSPIRE:
THE UNDERWORLD OF UNDERGROUND MUSIC is not about competition, which only results in someone losing out. The Creator never worry’s about losing his chance or losing an opportunity because in the state of abundance, there is enough for everyone.
WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO GET INTO MUSIC?
The first form of music that introduced me to the world of flows on beat was reggae music. The concept of always sticking to the beat stuck with me since the age of 5, through reggae music. It was the likes of Shabba Ranks, Nardo Ranks, Buju Banton, Dirtsman, Redd Foxx & Rayvon, Cutty Ranks etc. All of those gritty lyrics and perfect flows just did something to me. I would always mimic what they were saying even before I knew they were speaking English. Reggae used to play on Hot 97 all the time. Back then, I thought Hot 97 was a reggae station. Either that, or there was another radio station that I’d confused for Hot 97, which played all that reggae back then. I was crazy-grateful for that sort of music. My mom would blast her merengue all the time in the background. Kinito Mendez, Oro Solido (her favourite group) Johnny Ventura (her favourite all-time merengue artist), Benny Sadel, Los Toros Band (before the split), Hector Acosta (after the split) etc, were all in my head, constantly, whenever I wasn’t in my reggae mode. Anyway, I got into hip-hop before reggae – like a year before, I believe, through snippets of hip-hop within films I would see. Like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and whatnot. T.V. shows and sh*t. – ZIN-ZETA
