Along with being a natural born leader and one of the highest ranking captains in the infamous Mystic Blood
street gang, Zig Zag is considered royalty among his fellow bloodren.
He got his deal after he made the news for getting shot 5 times and surviving. The story went national and got the attention of $incity Records, who were looking to sign a rapper who already had a lot of eyes on them.
His debut album called "Who Let the Bloods Out" which was produced entirely by The Beat Demon went double platinum and catapulted him and the label to new heights.
The music industry would never be the same after that.
It did well commercially and was accepted because it was the type of music that had a twist of dark reality that certain listeners could experience without actually experiencing it, and others could relate to from living that lifestyle.
Other labels tried to copy what $incity had found success with by signing other gangster rappers.
At first it didn't work because all the rappers they signed were studio gangsters and didn't live the life they talked about in their music.
The other labels finally decided to start signing real gangsters who couldn't rap but had street credibility. It got real messy in the industry for a while.
When it came time to record his 3rd album it seemed Zig Zag lacked the hunger had on the first 2 albums.
With his street credibility still intact and record sales declining he decided to fall back from recording for a while.
Currently he is considered an O.G in the industry and a veteran
to his label as a flagship artist.
He only stays relevant in the news by all the beef and drama that
surrounds him on a daily basis.
From rival gang beef and his comrades Bladerunna,
Noize Bleed, and Skeptic to being involved in shoot outs and drama
it's like he dosen't have the time or drive to be in the studio.
Well at least he still has his weed and his chain...for now.
