Teenage Philly rapper Zero has started to get some buzz this year with a steady stream of releases, including collabs with Tory Lanez and Play Picasso. Initially making an impression with his enraged lyrics and rapid-fire delivery, more recently, Zero has been showing off a different side of his artistry, relaying delicate portraits of unraveling relationships. He finds himself in his feelings on his latest track, "Stay Here," and it sounds like one of his most easily relatable releases yet. For the soft instrumental, he taps up-and-coming Philly artist Andrew Meoray. Most surprising is the hook, as a melodic singing voice has now proven to be part of Zero's repertoire.
On "Stay Here," Zero attempts to pick up the pieces of a damaged long-term relationship, knowing that it's something he's compelled to do even though it may be a futile task. How do you guys feel about Zero's more pensive material lately?
In lieu of his previously planned Your Forever project, Zero has decided to drop off weekly tracks all summer before his next full-length. Stay tuned for more.
Why the fuck you always fight that
You even killin' me despite that
Cause somehow someone or something is different
And just how do you feel when I make a difference
