With his first music video reaching a 100k views on youtube in the first month of its release, Zeal Static is quiet certain that he will leave his audience blown away, with the release of his second mix tape album, titled "Tha Underground Railroad Mix-tape Vol 2, World Wide Revolution", which is hosted by non other then, Black Wall Streets very own DJ Kris Styalz, who happens to also be rapper "Game's" official Dj.
Originally from Fiji, Zeal Static has come to call Melbourne, Australia as his home, where he has lived half of his life. His family made the move when he was around 12 years old, looking for a better life and education for Static and his other two siblings.
What used to be a pastime slowly evolved into a part time career for this upcoming yet very talented poet as most emcees would like to be called. Static became a fan of Hip Hop music back in high school, when he bought his first Ice Cube cd. He would listen to it over and over again and knew every word of the songs. He says that Hip Hop was a step by step learning phase for him, where it started of with childish freestyle battles with close friends to composing his own lyrics.
Over the years Static honed on his writing, recording and performance skills and so in 2010 he released his first mix tape album hosted by Australia's number one urban Dj Nino Brown, which got him recognition in the Hip Hop scene. In 2011 he released his first single " Wat U Thinkin", which through promotion landed him a sponsored performance, airplay and interview in Fiji via 2DAYFM and FBC.
Just before leaving for his tour of Fiji, Static had the honour of speaking and gaining an interview from West Coast veteran Dj King Assassin, who also happens to be a close friend and at times producer of the late Tupac Amaru Shakur.
Currently Static is contemplating on the release of his second mix tape album and also working on his first EP release. He has been hard at work juggling a family life, work and the love for his music, where at times he hardly has anytime left to hit the studio, but regardless of all, his attitude towards his music is very promising and he definitely boasts of a banger every time he drops a new track.
