(MIAMI RAPPER ZONE)
Give Us Some Background Info As To Who You Are.
My name is Zone and I’m a rapper/songwriter from Dade County, Florida.
Wisdom is my mother, understanding is my father and time is my teacher. At the early age of five, music became a way to escape everyday struggles.
What Is The Significance Of Your Name?
The meaning of my name represents the fact that I operate on a different zone, a different time and a different frame of mind. Hence, the name Zone.
What project or single are you currently pushing?
The single I’m currently pushing is a song called “Diggin U.” The track is crazy and I’ve been getting a lot of positive feedback from it. Lenny S from Def Jam said this was the one to push.

Who Does Your Production?
My music production is primarily handled by JCriss from Trak Lab Productions. He’s on top of his game.
What Is Your Opinion Of The Current State of the music industry?
Right now, the game is missing substance. Very few artists are speaking about anything worthwhile. There are too many trap stars and ballers. That’s where I am different. I provide content that people can relate to while being entertaining at the same time.
If You Can Change One Thing About The Music Industry What Would It Be And Why?
If I could change one thing I would change the signing process. I would rather see people get signed off of their talent and not "the movement" that their money paid for. There are many people with real talent but no revenues and they can’t be heard due to that factor. Let’s go back to the old days where the music counted.
Are There Any Singers That You Would Like To Collaborate With In The Future?
Yes I looking forward to doing a song with Rafael Saadiq and Ne-Yo.
What Producer Would You Like To Collaborate With In The Future?
In terms of producers, I would like to collaborate with Dr. Dre, David Banner, Mannie Fresh, and Jazzy Pha.
What Is Your Favorite Movie And Favorite Book?
My favorite movie is “Mississippi Burning” and my favorite book is the “Holy Bible.”
What Are Some Major Misconceptions That You Think People Have Of You?
People need to understand that everyone with dreads in Dade County is not a criminal and there is real talent in Miami.
What Is Your Favorite Part Of Your Live Show? How Has It Evolved?
My favorite part is the passion, intensity and crowd participation. My live show is just like fine Wine – it gets better with time. LOL
What Is Your Lp Going To Be Like?
My album is going to be something that everyone can relate to unless you were born with a silver spoon in your mouth.. It’s going to make you reflect on life, dance, party etc..
What is your website?
My website is under construction but for now following me on Twitter @Zone357.
