ZotheJerk found his passion at an early age winning showcases and performing in his hometown of Detroit MI. With leadership and drive ZotheJerk was able to create a relationship with the late Big Proof of D12. Their relationship emerged with a plan to strike a deal with Big Proofs label Iron Fist Records. Unfortunately, the venture ended with Big Proof’s untimely demise.
After relocating to Kansas City, he decided to redefine himself as an artist. After extensive days, hours and gallons of coffee ZotheJerk has found his niche’ and Hip Hop “Soul Music” was born. This emotionally charged depiction of himself finds him vulnerable as he holds nothing back. His aggressive outspoken style puts the listener at the mercy of vivid storytelling. ZotheJerk effortlessly maneuvers through barren beats giving them life through his poetic stanzas.
ZotheJerk had the privilege of being a featured Panelist (Technology and The New Music Industry Expert) and Performer at 2014 A3C Music Festival in Atlanta, Won 2014 Kindest Kansascitian Award from Blue Valley School district, as well as received the 2014 Kansas City Music Awards “Humanitarian of the Year” Award.
An array of music videos, an extensive catalog, and tons of personality back ZotheJerk’s vision to encourage his listeners to “Get Up. Give Thanks. Get Moving!” As Zo himself delineates : “It’s the voice of a people who are tired and demand more, who ask what’s next, it’s the music of the current era……welcome to The Jerk Nation!”
