Maryland resident, teenage rap artist, Zech Slade grew up with an appreciation of old-school artists.
Surprisingly, all of these artists from Queen to Elvis were not rap artists but rather rock, pop, and blues. It wasn't until the age of 9, that Zech found an appreciation for hip-hop and rap music styles. After listening to "Marshall Mathers" from the Marshall Mathers LP, Zech had a newfound appreciation for rap music. Influences include Logic, J. Cole, Eminem, Lil Wayne, and Kendrick Lamar. Currently, Zech continues to perfect his raps and work on his writing skill.
