Music from Texas, like the state itself, has always expressed a bold identity, and rap & hip-hop from the Lone Star state has been no exception. As the rise of Southern Hip-Hop in the mid-2000’s opened up new doors, there were suddenly more creative possibilities for artists from the region. Zeles is the artist at the forefront of this hungry, new talent. Born and raised in the Countdown City a.k.a. San Antonio, Texas, Zeles felt the music in his bones from a very young age. A student of the game from the age of six, Zeles’ steady diet of rap and hip-hop cassettes developed him into the force he is today. While he had regularly rocked freestyle ciphers at parties in high school, Zeles got his first taste of music stardom when he was invited from the audience to freestyle on stage at a Mike Jones college performance. Since moving the crowd that night, Zeles knew what he was destined to become. After graduating from The University of Texas, he started channeling his passion through the mic. Over a handful of soulful beats, Zeles immerses the listener with his unique experiences with inner-conflict, grand ambitions, and personal relationships. Whether you love it or hate it, the music of Zeles will undoubtedly inspire strong feelings within every witness of his talent. Today, Zeles' trajectory continues with the highly anticipated release of his follow-up mixtape, The Layover. The 5 track sneak peek of the project, titled The Layover: A Preview, has been well received by audience members, bloggers, and online listeners** alike. Old fans, and new, are patiently waiting for the project which is currently slated for a July 2014 release.There is no doubt that Zeles is poised to make an impact with the release of The Layover.
