E.H.M.P.: Thanks for taking the time out to sit with me. How are you today?
ZAS: I’m doing great pleasure to speak with you.
E.H.M.P.: How long have you been rapping and what or who got you started?
ZAS: Since I was about 5 or 6, I got started from my peoples always listening to music, and they inspired me and I naturally grew a passion for music. I didn’t begin recording til much older of course.
E.H.M.P.: You are also into graphics and own one of the hottest graphic companies in Miami. How did you get into that?
ZAS: I got into graphic because when i was trying to begin my music career, I couldn’t really get much graphic work and I ended up doing my own work. Its funny though because now I do graphics for so many people and celebrities its crazy
E.H.M.P.: How do you feel about the current state of hip hop?
ZAS: I mean hip hop is hip hop regardless. Honestly I really love it. From hip hop to rap its all music so you really cant judge what it is. I’m not really into the skinny jeans though, I don’t think that symbolizes hip hop, no disrespect to anyone, that’s just not Young Zasta.
E.H.M.P.: Where can our readers listen to and download your music?
ZAS: EVERYWHERE. That’s real. You can go to www.youngzasta.com , www.miyayoradio.com, itunes. sound cloud, rap city, comcast, youtube, vine….. I’m everywhere. All online stores, I’m everywhere.
