Zak Bonzie aka Zie is one of the premier artists within the Oklahoma demographic. Zie has been certified as a local favorite, and is next up to represent a market untouched and a story untold by the music industry. Patiently waiting for his chance, Bonzie lives in the studio perfecting his craft, and is relentless in his pursuit to represent his side, our side, of life. With his unprecedented sound and image, Zak is prepared to take on any challenge and silence critics. Zieis a humble rapper, authentic in his approach and remains true to his lyrics. He stays away from the cliché rapper image by only rhyming about what he believes in and does. His dynamic style of music is able to connect with a multitude of audiences, which is an imperative in today’s music industry. Unafraid and unforgiving is Zie’s presence on the mic, but the humble rapper from Norman, Oklahoma has a side to him that is also approachable and endearing. However, once the music is on and the lights are down, his formidable size is matched by a persona unseen and unmatched. His rap style is incomparable due to his unique sound and delivery. His music posses lyrical content that is meaningful and at times empowering, something the game has been missing beyond our Drakes and J. Coles.
Bonzie is of African descent, giving him a unique perspective about life and a broader scope in regard to his content. Conscious of his multicultural background, Zone is attempting to bridge the gap between contemporary rap here in the states, and that of which overseas (specifically Africa.) Songs with Dex and R2Bees prove that Zone is multifaceted in his approach to his music, but is also open minded in working with artists that differ from his style and technique. The music industry lacks this sense of camaraderie, subsequently killing morale and originality. Bridging this gap would not only bring upon immense amounts of revenue, but also introduce the world to completely new styles and sounds without being apprehensive about the unknown. Zone has the potential to revolutionize the music industry with this concept, and the potential bring substance back to the industry.
