Z-Ro Interview Part 2 / Why Rap-A-Lot Artists Don't Sell

Posted on July 19, 2006 7:26 AM

ZRO.jpg


If anybody deserves some buzz in Houston right now, it's Z-Ro. It's obvious that Rap-A-Lot has a history of promoting their artists with a lackadaisical approach, as I'll point out in the second part of today's post. Yeah yeah Pimp C's Pimpalation album is expected to debut on #2 with 100,000 units, but how long he can sustain those sales is what really matters in the long run? Why did Bun B's much stronger, much-anticipated solo do some shitty numbers? Why is Z-Ro frustrated and ready to call it quits? I bring you the interview, you do the math.

In case you missed Part 1, we're starting off with the last question from that half of the interview. In Part 1, I asked Z-Ro if there was some sort of challenge associated with being on Rap-A-Lot Records. Here's his response:

Z-Ro: You could say that. I can only speak for myself; I don’t know the next person’s situation. All I know is my situation. My work ethic is unquestionable. Before I came to Rap-A-Lot, I was dropping three records a year…independently. I drop one album a year now. I’m used to flooding the market with my shit. That’s what I used to do to stay afloat, not because I’m trying to make muthafuckas out here respect my grind. It’s just that I got bills all the day. To tell you the truth, it ain’t just Rap-A-Lot, it’s everybody that I deal with; I get crumbs here and there. I ain’t never really got what I feel I deserve, so if I’m not given what I’m expecting from one area of the music, I gotta try to do it from another area of the music. In terms of me not poppin’ nationally yet, it’s gotta be whoever distributing my shit. I go a lot of places to do concerts and muthafuckas is on my shit. I spend the night down there and I go to their record store, and ain’t none of my shit in they store, you know. The music is jamming, it’s just that people are going to the store and not finding my shit.

SOHH Rizoh: So, it’s really the marketing and promotional aspect that’s lacking?

Z-Ro: Yeah, it’s gotta be. When I’m doing music, I’m listening to my shit. I’m hard critic on music myself, and if it doesn’t make my head bob…especially down here in Houston. Houston is the muthafuckin’ Apollo. I started my pain shit 10 years ago, there was no trunks poppin’, no million dollars in my pocket. What I did over the years was jack the beats up a little bit so it sounds like some commercial shit…the same thing [Young] Jeezy’s doing right now. He’ll take a beat that’s commercially-strong and put some street shit on there. Now you got the thug niggas buying some shit that really an R&B nigga’s supposed to be buying. I took the same format, started getting better beats. But, it’s been the same for ten years. The man who was concerned with the man-hold-up-syrup-in-my-cup type music, they find out they got problems now. Everybody got a problem down here, so when I talk about a problem, everybody can relate, because the person that was in a candypainted back then might be in a mu’fuckin Dodge Gremlin right now. They ain’t rich no more and they feeling my type of music now. So, now they’re buying my shit.

SOHH Rizoh: It’s been slow this year as far Houston hip-hop. Do you think we're slippin'?

Z-Ro: Yeah it’s been slow. It’s slippin’ on one hand because muthafuckas that we’re used to seeing on TV so much, we ain’t seeing them because half of them are really living good, so they don’t really have to come out with no shit right now. On the other hand, some of these mu’fuckas are so bullshit and labels ain’t puttin’ no more bullshit out. So, a lot of people stuff getting’ pushed back right now because their labels are sending them back to the studio like “This ain’t good enough.” Some of these labels are trying to commercialize gangstas and gangstas ain’t goin’ for it. Or some of the people that used to be commercial are trying to be gangsta. My shit has always been a combination of the rap music with some singing. I started that way with the whole pot of gumbo. I ain’t pick up none on that shit, I had it from Day 1.

SOHH Rizoh: I think you should keep doing what works best for you

Z-Ro: As far as that goes, I ain’t gon lie man. This record that Rap-A-Lot's going to put out, this is gon' be the last one. I'm out the game after this one. I mean you ain't gotta be no rocket scientist to know that you wanna be paid for your work man. This is gon' be my 20th record coming out. This is album #20 right here.

SOHH Rizoh: That's an average of 2 albums every year. You've been grindin' man.

Z-Ro: Yeah I've been grindin' man. And when you've been grindin' as much as I have, and you go check your bank account and your shit looks like my shit, it’s either time to do something else or it's time to do something else.

SOHH Rizoh: Speaking of doing something else, what's next for Z-Ro?

Z-Ro: Sheeit, you might just not hear from me, period, because all I know how to do is music. There's a lot of mo'fuckas that be coming up to me with that acting shit, but you know, I ain't no acor. I think I'm a bit too real to go act, because they might give me some punk ass role, a faggot or some shit that I can't play. So you know, this just really might be it after this point, because you really expect to get paid for your work. And when the guy who books your shows, he’s cool but he comes back with this little punk money for shows and shit. That shit is hard on my album, makes me don’t wanna fuck with nobody record label. Don’t nobody give a fuck about me or the responsibility that I have as Joseph McVeigh. Fuck that Z-Ro shit. I do the Z-Ro shit so that Joseph McVeigh can be better, you know what I’m saying. If I’m doing this shit professionally, and I’m not getting what I deserve, then what’s the point of doing it?

SOHH Rizoh: Would you say you’re frustrated with the game, period?

Z-Ro: I ain’t frustrated with the game. I’m just frustrated with my situation.

SOHH Rizoh: Any guest artists on your new album?

Z-Ro: I got Yukmouth on there. I’ve got Spice-1 on two tracks.

SOHH Rizoh: Oh, that should be interesting. Thanks 'Ro. We're looking forward to the album.


Why Rap-A-Lot Artists Can't Sell?
-Long considered the strongest label in Houston, yet Rap-A-Lot's promotion game is lost somewhere between horrible and nonexistent. And don't tell me about Geto Boys or Scarface. 'Face was knee deep in the business side of the industry, and literally sold himself.

-You know it's a wrap when a legendary rapper like Z-Ro says he's leaving the game and going back to doing whatever he used to do, because he's trying to pay his rent.

-What about Trae? Where's the promotion for this artist? Oh, he's on the cover of Houston Press. That's 300,000 copies of a paper that no one reads.

-How many Rap-A-Lot artists have their own official website? Google it.

-These guys are supposedly dropping two albums this month yet you don't see that many interviews, press appearances, and everything in between.

-Ok, Trae has a site that was designed for an older release Same Thing Different Day but nothing for his upcoming major debut Restless except for what you'll find on their rarely updated website.

-Now I've also heard from several inside sources that Rap-A-Lot is a difficult label to work with, and that's not speaking highly of them.

-How come no one even knew about the 2Pac + Scarface album that was coming out this year?

20 years in the game and coming up short on their promotional, publicity and marketing game? I guess that's why we have alternatives like Swisha House.

UPDATE: According to WordofSouth.com's interview with Trae, Z-Ro is currently doing a four-year stint in jail.

1st I still dont believe he's gonna retire.

Real talk! rapalot aint doing shit for they artists

slow down SOHH RIZOH you killin' em

I can't wait for that RO album

I don't think it's just Houston artists who are having a hard time. Seems like everyone's #'s are slipping even the great white hope Eminem. Sooner or later the artists are going to realize that the gangsta/dopeboy/tough guy/keep it hood gimmick can't carry the game anymore. It'll work in isolated cases but overall that shit has had a very long run. Time to be CREATIVE and not just talk about a bunch of ghetto ignorant bullshit. Aside from that, any rapper over 30 should seriously be thinking about WRAPPING it up. Some of these guys look like fathers on the verge of being grandfathers and that's not a good look when the bulk of rap music BUYERS are teens. Ever watch 106th and Park and notice the stark difference in age between the audience and the guests? Much of these older cats make good music but it may have taken them too long to get there. At the end of the day rap is really for the young not for people who had to wait for adulthood to be cool teenagers... Time to move on.

This is nothing new with rap-a-lot,they lock artist into bullshit lifelong deals that a nigga cant fuck with. They dont promo tour with their artist,they dont get behind the best talent and lil j dont give a fuck. Where is DEVIN THE DUDE one of the coldest niggas in the game not only in houston but the game,they fucked ODD SQUAD,they fucked TELA,they fucked Z-RO and the list goes on and on. I used to be proud to say that rap-a-lot is from my city but as i got older and began to noticed the bullshit that goes on at the "compound" now i dont give a fuck. They can kill the spirit and the drive in the best niggas. ASK Z-RO!

Zro thats My Homie ......I hope he'll record for the new Album................

I agree it's time to move on...I looked at the Itunes charts and wasn't no rapper on there...it just gets old - everybody can't listen to candy paint anthems all day - its borrrrrrrrrringgggg - and everybody ain't living in da hood on Section 8 - da white folks sho aint - they listening to ummm...Brooke Hogan and Paul Wall now...lol

SOUNDS LIKE RO IS TAKING THINGS INTO HIS OWN HANDS...
THIS IS LIKE MARKETING HIS ALBUM...
I BET THIS NEXT ONE.. AKA HIS LAST RAP ALOT ALBUME WILL GO PLATINUM....

ZRO IS AN ARTIST..
AND HE IS VERY CREATIVE...
THE MORE HE LIVES AND GOES THROUGH THIS.. THE MORE HE WILL HAVE TO SAY AS AN ARTIST.. AND HE WILL WANT TO CREATE MORE... JUST WATCH...
HE WILL GET HIS...

THATS BULLSHIT.

YOU DONT DO SOMETHING U LOVE AND JUST QUITE.

Z-RO MY FAV RAPPER.
THE BEST IN THE GAME RIGHT NOW.
IF FACE CAN GET OUT THERE AND DO IT BACK WHEN THE SOUF WASNT GETTIN NO SHINE I NO Z-RO CAN DO NOW THAT WE GETTIN SHINE.

"YOU DONT WORK YOU DONT EAT, YOU DONT GRIND YOU DONT SHINE. THATS WHY I'M ON A MISSION TO GET MINE. AND THATS THE BOTTOM LINE"- MIKE JONES

MIKE JONES SAID IT BEST

"mo'fuckas that be coming up to me with that acting shit, but you know, I ain't no acor. I think I'm a bit too real to go act"

^^^^^ Ladies & Gentlemen when keepin' it real goes wrong

This muthafucker deserves to starve to death with his ignorance mayne.

Everybody in Houston knows what Rap-A-Lot really is. Everybody with some sense aint trying to have any ties to that label. I know everybody knows Rap-A-Lot does NOT move a lot of units, but yet the label is supposed to be worth between $300 and $400 million dollars. What albums sold enought records to generate that kind of money? I aint gotta spell it out. Y'all know what it is.

Maybe my 1st post was too complex for some of you so let me simplify. Whenever artists don't sell they blame everyone else. When they blow they take all the credit. Sometimes your shit don't sell because the market isn't receptive plain and simple. That doesn't mean you can't rap although it could but timing is everything. Too much damn whining and analyzing. This ain't exactly rocket science. Underground rappers CHOOSE to cater to a minority and then complain when ignored by the majority. Go figure! A real underground artist does it for the LOVE and would do it for free if he/she had too. Too often the term underground has come to mean I haven't caught fire yet. Word of advice to ZRO and all other disgruntled rappers... MAKE THE ADJUSTMENT OR MOVE ON!

While you're at it stop going broke trying to convince everyone you're rich. That wasted money could come in handy if rap isn't working out.

J-PRINCE IS RICH AS FUCK AND SHOULD BR PROMOTING HIS ARTISTS CORRECTLY. AS WELL AS SHOWING THEM THE BUSINESS SIDE. LOOK WHAT HAPPENED TO BIG MIKE. RAP-A-LOT DIDN'T PAY HIM OR PROMOTE HIM SO HE BURNED DOWN SOME OF J-PRINCES BUSINESSES. THEN ENDED UP DOING A FOUR YEAR PRISON BID. DAMN. NOW THATS FRUSTRATION.

its simple, he need to no the business side of this shit to get paid

I'm from Washington DC and I was recently in Las Vegas, NV. I can't remember what channel I was watching but a commercial came on for Pimp C's new album, a nice 30 second drop , it peaked my interest a little bit, then I thought about it, I've never seen nor do you ever see these Rap a lot commercials on the East Coast. I think the reason that Rap A Lot doesn't do big numbers is that they target their marketing in limited areas, probably becuase of the high cost of nationwide promotion. Z-ro you are getting ZERO spins here on the east coast homie, and from what I could tell nothing on the West Coast either...in the immortal words of Tony Montana..."we gotta expand, New York, Chicago, LA, set our own mark..and enforce it!!!"

Has anybody seen lil Flipper????

Has anybody heard "Shake It For Daddy" by Tela? I don't know if it was spinning outside of Memphis but this was his reunion with Jazze Pha. Now you know how hot EVERYTHING Jazze Pha touches lately has been. In my opinion this song was equal to or better than "Sho Nuff", which put Tela on the map. With Jazze Pha producing and on the hook, I thought this was his return to at least BET status. But on Rap-A-Lot. Nope.
You have to consider who J. Prince was just in a public business relationship with - Suge Knight and Irv Gotti. All were just investigated by the feds. It's known fact now that the industry has banned Suge, maybe the same is happening with J. Prince. We'll find out soon about Irv.

So sorry this has happened to Z-RO but that damn rap-a-lot. All they do is bullsh!t-a-lot no rapper or group has sold a lot of records the promotion team needs to be shot they suppose to be a major independent label and all they do is market their artis locally or regionally. ex. (What about Trae? Where's the promotion for this artist? Oh, he's on the cover of Houston Press. That's 300,000 copies of a paper that no one reads.) Its sad but true. People wasn't hatin' on zero when he signed with rap-a-lot but they already knew the outcome with their artist. Where in the hell is Tela!! rap-a-lot is just garbage and I'm from H-town. Lil J ain't ridin s rolls royce for nothin.

As an artist the best thing to do now is promote and sell ya own shit and stop depending on the "machine" if you are good enough and your hussle game is tight than you will be heard. Z ro needs to leave them alone and do his own thing put out his own shit..

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

get real, rock old timers like Aerosmith, Rolling Stones, Iggy Pop r still performing
if it's unusual for u, or u uncomfortable to see 30 + rapper, then u's the problem, it is only a matter of time when young now hip hop stars get old and what? they should quit jes cause of age? hip hop is established genre like rock and jazz for that matter and its audience is also getting older, like i ain't gonna stop listening to it 20 years from now
so jes get used to that situation and age shouldn't have none to do with quitting, only the quality amd relevance of the music

as far as Rap-A-Lot goes, if the lable is really costs that ammount of money and it wasn't generated by no album sales cause they releases don't sell much, but rather through some other ventures, which I'm On My H-Town Shit!!! didn't wanna name, then J. Prince maybe doing this for his pure pleasure only and not to sell records, cause he don't really need sales he gets money from elsewhere

NIMROD...
QUIT WRITING LIKE A NIMROD...
lol
Dont say its Ro's fault, when it aint!
dude has all these fans, and back up..
but all you hear from Ro is fact..
Zro is not the only one in his position.. look at it with open eyes

Maybe if Z-RO can go to the Prince and have him released. This way he can use his old albums and take the classics update them with new beats and some bars and hit the mixtape circuit. He should follow the script of PAPOOSE and 50. They will feel this dude out east and in the west. His style is just superior to the baby lyrics of H-Town. Chamillinare just flows fast (style = quanity over quality. Z- ro has master his flow...he just needs to get to the right group for the push. Maybe sell his soul to Jimmy Iovine. HOLLAR!

the best rappers alive today are:

1.Rakim
2.Z-Ro
3.Scarface
4.DMX
5.Ludacris

J Prince and them are too interested in Flossing and Boxing managment- I think they are doing a sports managment business as well.
Rappallot has never really been good @ getting artist press at all. I never ever remember seeing ScarFace getting any airtime in the east. Just straight half ass source ads. Pretty much like the ad you see with scar face and pac.
Rappollot is probably trying to hold on to every dollar. I would love to see what one of their contract reads. Probably worse than a Bad Boy contract!LOL and Lord knows that must be terreble! LOL Rappallot has put out some good stuff though!

THE U IN JESUS


Before U were thought of or time had begun,
God stuck U in the name of His Son.

And each time U pray, you'll see it's true,
You can't spell out JesUs and not include U.

You're a pretty big part of His wonderful name,
For U, He was born; that's why He came.

And His great love for U is the reason He died.
It even takes U to spell crUcified.

Isn't it thrilling and splendidly grand
He rose from the dead, with U in His plan?

The stones split away, the gold trUmpet blew,
And this word resUrrection is spelled with a U.

When JesUs left earth at His upward ascension,
He felt there was one thing He just had to mention.

"Go into the world and tell them it's true
That I love them all - Just like I love U."

So many great people are spelled with a U,
Don't they have a right to know JesUs too?

It all depends now on what U will do,
He'd like them to know,
But it all starts with U. Will YOU pass it on.

THE FACT IS Z-RO IS A GREAT RAPPER, BUT AN INCREDIBLY STUPID HUMAN BEING. I HATE TO SAY IT BUT, EVEN THOUGH I TRULY BELEIVE HE IS THE GREATEST LYRICIST/RAPPER OF ALL TIME...(YES INCLUDING PAC AND BIGGIE) HE SHOULDN'T BE WINNING ABOUT HIS DOUGH SITUATION...JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE TALENT DON'T MEAN YOU CAN JUST HAND THE REIGNS OFF TO SOMEBODY ELSE TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR BUSINESS SITUATION, Z-RO YEAH U GOT GRIND IN THE BOOTH AND ARE A HARDWORKER THERE, BUT GET YOUR HANDS DIRTY WITH THE BUSINESS SIDE, GET INVOLVED, LEARN AS YOU GO ALONG, AND THEN YOU'LL GET MONEY. DON'T RELY ON OTHER CATS TO TELL YOU WHAT TO DO, AND WHAT NOT TO DO...

like other record labels lil j doesn't believe in takin chances wit his artist. other record label may invest $500,000 to promote a new artist wit no real guarantee they will blow, just cause the artist has a buzz, but the album could still flop. rap-a-lot doesn't do this ,so if you don't promote properly you won't know the full potential of your artist. all you get from rap-a-lot is an advance, they pay to make your album, and no promotion. their projects only sell 100,000 to 150,000 copies with their promotion. that's only about $500,000. after you recoup about $150,000 you ain't goin see no money on da back end cause all the profit belongs to lil j.

post

Bayan: Aerosmith and the other rock musicians you mentioned make TIMELESS music that enjoys support from their fans who basically grow old with them and even go so far as to introduce their children to the music. They also make music you can listen to with the entire family or in the company of anyone 98% time. Can you say that about rap? The music has been dumbed down to the point that ANYBODY, even Z-RO can be called a great lyricist as some of you have said. Bottom line, the niggas not selling for the same reason most of these dudes don't sell. HE'S OUT OF TOUCH WITH THE REAL WORLD LIKE ALL 5 OF HIS FANS INCLUDING YOU BAYAN.

Miguel: Fyi- Nimrod was a son of Cush who was a son of Noah in the Old Testament. He was also the 1st ruler of Babylon and described as a MIGHTY HUNTER.

If you're gonna throw insults at least know of what you speak.

Also, Rap-A-Lot will be worth 300m when cows atart flying. Anyone who believes that fairy tale probably thinks Jay-Z is worth 300m and owns the Nets. LOL!

The dopest shit I ever heard Z-Ro on was the Kingz Of The South mixtape that him and Lil' Flip did! They massacred T.I on that bitch!
If Z-Ro was smart he'd be signed with Clover Geez/whoever!
Even though Lil' Flip's new shit was pushed back, Flip is what's good in Texas.

I'd get Z-Ro's album on GP, but if you love your craft so much, take some time to learn the business side. Don't rely on someone to do it for you, because many people have been down this road and have gotten screwed. It's unfortunate, but that's how it is.
Everything is a business, don't get it twisted.........that goes for everybody.
Co-sign to what someone said earlier. Don't spend all your money trying to look rich.

Z-Ro , I wish him the Best , I hope that that video with him and flip should do good.

U boys gotta get off Rap-A-Lot fo real. Z-ro knew what he was signed on to do and what he was getting in returned. He missed his mark it aint lil J or any other labels fault why the cash aint there for u. Look at Slim Thug, that boy from da Northeast made even rappers on major labels look broke. Z-ro's music is just too sad, I love his rhyme but can't deal with da mood when I'm trying to ride. I hope he find his place in d game.

nigger

i haven't read the whole thread yet; however, I got so heated at Nimrod, (not a flattering name. if you do your research, you wouldn't call yourself that shit), I had to say something. Unfortunately, the game is so shallow that a lot of people go into it blindly. They look at brothers wearing chains and whatnot and sign with a label. Just take Tupac Shakur as an example. Suge REALLY stuck one to him, but he wanted to get out of jail. I personally know people who were so sick of Puff's posturing and shit that they actually thought Suge Knight was cool. Really, they are the same selffish, crooked nigger. When you look at Hip Hop as a hood art driven by people who lack options, you see why some people get involved in these fucked up deals. There's really not a damned thing that Z-Ro can do but retire. I doubt that Lil' J will let him out. If you were from H-Town, you would realize that ANYONE who signs with Rap-A-Lot will never go anywhere else. Not even Scarface. J ain't really let him go to Def Jam. There was some real shit there between Rap-A-Lot & Def Jam, and it wasn't pretty. Chek out how Rap-A-Lot cannabalizes every independent Scarface release. They put out "Balls & My Word" right with the "The Fix" to distract from the The Fix. They did the same thing with "my Homies, Pt.2". you think Scarface Really had something to do with putting that out at the same time as "1 Hunnid?" Basically, J fucked over Face by putting that shit out at the same time. I figure that the only way to deal with these shiesty motherfuckers is to ALWAYS have a legal fall-back. Industry rule 4080 is some real shit. These niggers and honkies in the rap game are some greedy, dishonest and DANGEROUS beings. If all you have is rap or the dope game, you are fucked. That why your teachers told you to stay your ass in school. These street niggers can't fuck you over if you can say, "Fuck you, I don't need this rap shit to survive, Bitch! i can get paid other ways and not go to jail or have to deal with you hoes! Please do not criticize Joe McVeigh for what happened. He said it himself...he is a musical artist. He doesn't know anything else. If you believe all these motherfuckers in the the first place, if they werren't rapping, they would be hustling. That means they are traped in the "trap". That's a desperate situation right there. That means that folks will sign shit that they don't understand quickly. If Z-Ro could go to another label, best believe that N-Tha-Water (J Prince) would still be getting that publishing $$$. Z-Ro is stuck. I wish that brother godspeed because Prince is getting that boxing money, and that is better than rap money. So, those Rap-A-Lot artists are stuck at the whims of the company like the majority of the slaves in the music industry. It's a fucked up situation.

@ Bayan:

U damn right J. Prince makes his money from "other" ventures but I seriously doubt has Rap-A-Lot just for pleasure. They don't call it Rap-A-Lot Mafia for nothing. They haven't been being investigated by the FEDS all these years for nothing. J. Prince don't have ties to Death Row and Murder Inc. for nothing.

Banga or is it bangle, well whatever. I had a good laugh at your response and call out to me. LMFAO!

Let me drop this on your emotional, immature ass and I'm gone. There are 2 types of lies in this world; the kind we tell and the we believe. You my friend have allowed them to become one and the same.

Here's the deal on hip hop: NEVER in history have such a talentless bunch of people and I mean from execs, video directors, etc., on down been able to amass such wealth so quickly. My man water seeks its own level and THAT'S the real reason these cats fade back obscurity. They're constantly put in positions they can't hold on to.

You speak on Tupac, that nigga was so shook after 8mos in prison he signed his life away on a napkin to get out. His sentence was 1 1/2 to 4 1/2 which means he was nearly halfway done in NY. He couldn't wait to get back to stirring up trouble and throwing gang signs. This from the nigga who only managed to shoot his friend and blow off his testicles despite being armed with not 1 but 2 guns when confronted by danger. I'll stop right there before I blow everyone's bubble. You niggas love lies so I'll leave you in the dark.

nimrod
umm.. yea.. this is now.. your not from the past.. so quit acting like your better than people just cuz you write a freaking essay each time....
PLus most the time, you dont know what your talking about anyhow..lol

uh miguel, could it be I have more to say? Don't let your inferiortity complex be so obvious. I come on these blogs and voice my opinion at no one's expense and people like you who have no intelligent response call me out. Well if you ask for it you'll get. I promise. Go back and read my posts and not once did I say anything personally directed at someone until provoked. From your last post you're probably one of those people who think "acting" dumb is cool.

That's how many albums that nigga's gonna sell...Z-Ro

Nimrod what kind of fucking idiot are you???? I don't know any n*ggaz that want to spend a day in jail much less 1 1/2 years for some sh*t they didn't do, head to maximum security prison and see how many brothers would sign their name on a Napkin to leave the pen and record for time the hottest and most powerful label in the country and get a million dollars. If pac was a ho N8cca he would of snitched on somebody to get his time cut, but to connect with some cats to get your appeal going and post your bail, that's a power move. If Pac's first joint had gone double wood and only sold 250 K would then what. He's free. You comparing jail to when your mom tells you can't come out your room for the night, sit your punk ass down and sh&t the fu*k up!!!! Youz a real sucka *ss nigga.

Z Ro is my favorite rapper and also the best, I am honestly sad to hear that he is retiring. Houston need Z Ro to dispell our reputation for having wack rappers, he cant retire then I wan thave anything to listen to, i aint listening to Mike Jones

Z-Ro is in prison right now doin a
4 year ride for a violation it has
been confirmed by several sources

NIMROD---------------INTERSCOPE ARTIST................


HaHahahahahah
I wont call u out.................
Just keep on............U straight....

WHY IS THIS CALLED ZRO INTERVIEW PART 2 WHEN YOU DIDNT EVEN INTERVIEW HIM A SECOND TIME? ALL THAT SHIT IS OLD NEWS

Nimrod, nothing of what you said has anything to do with not selling. Maybe people need to start buying legit copies of the artists work.

Some people claim to be the biggest fan of [Insert Rapper Name] and defend themselves by saying they have all of their albums... On their harddrive. Piracy heavily affected recording artists.

These rappers have to spend money (or owe money) before they can actually start making it. They or their labels pay for producers to lace them with beats and pay for studio time, then pay for the materials used to make the actual CD's. Your broke before your album even drops, so you rely heavily on enough sales to recoup and make enough profit to feed your family. If you have wack distribution and wack marketing, it's that much harder to sell. And that much harder to feed your family.

I'm back! Glad to see I got so many people riled up. LOL!

1. Z-RO won't sell because his appeal is pretty local and maybe he's not as nice as his fellow Texans think he is. It's no different with all the rappers who say they're gonna bring back NY and fall flat on their face.

2. Pac shot his own testicles off and shot his man when confronted by robbers. That is the truth. As far as snitching, he basically accused EVERYONE in every interview and song afterwards only the police didn't care because they didn't like him anyway. He's the original dry snitch on wax. All others follow his lead.

2. After sitting in prison for 8mos he should've been adjusted and he could've finished his sentence and still sell tons of records while having his FREEDOM. Instead he signed with someone he despised because he couldn't take it plain and simple. If he had stood up like a man he wouldn't have been on Deathrow and he wouldn't be dead.

Back to today's rappers. Too old. Too similar and Too dumb. If they stop believeing their own hype they might pull it off. That goes for everybody.

Rap A lot always been on that non promo shyt..to understand what really going on u have to deal with them..I have a store and i have to beg them dudes for a poster...And im soundscan which is supposed to elavate me above the other mom an pops..Any of u that have every been or seen the compound, the lower level is where the keep the P.O.P.. I would have to drive to H-town and wait for Frog to pick the rainsoked shyt and find me the good shyt underneath...I promised them a whole wall in a 2500 sq ft shop, and they would give 3 12" singles for 6 djs and if i was lucky bout 10 posters...Talk bout stingy, finally i jus cut them an gave the wall to Wreckshop..There was a article in a mag bout 3 years ago were Cheif basiccly said " we drop records low budget" in fact he went on to say they invented the low budget record..You have Yuk, Tela, Face, Do or Die, Devin and you cant turn out 5 gold records a year..Thats sum shyt right there...

Ro new what he was gettin into an so did Bun B..They cant be mad at any 1 but them self....

doch210 sounds like he knows the Houston scene well. I agree wholeheartedly that those boys have no one to blame but themselves. ALL problems begin and end with self.

@@@ im on my Htownshyt, Mello an Seagram are dead, that Keke an Slim album was a one record P@D deal,,That list is pretty accurate but a little missleading cuz some of those groups were only being distrubeted thru rap alot, Geto twins was Precise's group, Black monks were Bidos group, Convicts was Big Mike an 3-2, Odd squad was devin really...Utp dropped a record an has another comin out ,Facemob was Sarfaces group n jus got pressing from rap alot..And you forgot about salt n peppa...lol but yea if you aint from Texas you prolly aint heard of alot of that shyt..Although when DMG got out he cut another record like 3 years ago.. In all fairness to rap alot sum of the others only had 1 record deals, like Big Syke..But you on ur shyt..lol you right were the fuk they at now..lol

@ dock210

Yeah a lot of those groups were distributed through RAL but their logo would be so BIG and you'd barely notice the other ones. A lot of artists haven't been heard from after their first album cause they'll find out how it is after they sign but can't get out the contract cause they'll bein signed a 10 year contract or some shit like.

well the us courts did away with any contract over 7 years..but yea for a min J was gettin evvery one like Eazy was..bottom line, what J does aint new and any 1 who signs with them can t be mad for gettin fuked over...

You dont ever happan to see a copy of that ol convicts cd around do u..the one with Harris county jail on it?

damn that's fucked up for real. everybody download this tx boyz ringtone and check out the rest of my tracks at myspace.com/zachgarza

ive been listening to his music since back all da way in '99 this is my favorite rapper out there in the game now you see everyone in houston making it succesfull but then then theres ro i think hes the one who should be makin that money with the guerilla maab i really think he should be like paul wall rigth or slim thug or bun b to me hhis music is better than all of theires combined but i hope z-ro's music dont caome to an end

bottom line on all this shit... im a texas nigga and ive been with z-ro's shit for 5 years. in my opinion there isn;t a better rapper and never has been but its about 50/50 on the deal with rap-a-lot and ro, z-ro fucked up his own money, got a little money from let the truth be told the buys a bentley that now he prolly cant afford the insurance on,but at the same time he's never made a significant amount of cash from his albums,rap-a-lot isn't a good label to be on but if your a houston rapper then it's the best you can be on or at least it seems that way because the have a brand to put out to the mass. Ro is the coldest but he didnt have the smarts to handle his buisness so therefore he aint living the life he should be. i predict this new cd will be his biggest because he's never had the exposure he has now, but he will be locked up yet again and wont be able to enjoy it. the niggas got a 4 year sentence, will prolly be out in 2, and will release another cd once he realizes how much money he could make if he got his shit right. but the nigga is the realist and if he says something than he will prolly stick to it regardless,good or bad.

yeah it be me again, sayin' the same thang.
ay z-ro, keep ya head up and don't quit doing something you love bro. shit gits hard i know, but God didn't bring you this far to give up now dawg. loves hearing your music, cuz even though i ain't hustle and been out there thuggin, nigga like me done struggled too. don't come across too many real rappers these days. nowadays niggas is all about beats, which is cool at times, but i can actually sit and listen to the words you say and still bob my head to it. don't quit bro. u said it best in one of your songs i still jam to this day, "too many niggas tryin' to take me off of my game". don't let'em do it to you bro. question comes up whose yo favorite rapper, been z-ro the crooked ever since i came remember.

Well acutally sales are dropping and will continue to drop, due to technology. Just as long as consumers have the ability to produce their own music in the comfort of their own home,office, or anywhere else you can install a burner, our starving artist must find a way to ditch the big time record labels and reinvent the game. I believe they should start by owning their own, and doing more shows.

FREE MY NIGGA Z-RO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There's really not a damned thing that Z-Ro can do but retire. I doubt that Lil' J will let him out. If you were from H-Town, you would realize that ANYONE who signs with Rap-A-Lot will never go anywhere else. Not even Scarface. J ain't really let him go to Def Jam. There was some real shit there between Rap-A-Lot & Def Jam, and it wasn't pretty
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Posted by: Banga! at July 19, 2006 03:25 PM

If there was some real shit between Rap-A-Lot and Def Jam then what was up with "Get Throwed"? That song had Jay-Z,Young Jeezy, UGK, and ZRO on it. It's a damn shame the video didn't get more play on BET, I saw it maybe once or twice on Rap City and that was it. Shit it didn't even make it on 106 & Park. Also I think ZRO should of got to drop a verse in place of Jay-Z's instead of giving Pimp C a second verse. No disrespect to Pimp C I just think it would of been a great opportunity for ZRO to get some much needed national exposure.

They don't promote good there at rap a lot for some reason. Zro should be a top seller like jeezy.

MAYNNN ZR0 THTS MY NiiGGUH FASH0 THTS 0NE 0F THE M0ST REALEST NiiGGUH 0UT HEA H0LDiiN iiT D0WN F0 THE STRE3TS

yo, i'm from the H (sw side) and for as long as i can remember, the mentality of houston is so narrow and somewhat behind the times. for being one of the top 5 cities in america, it doesn't make the strides it can because of the mentality of the people there. that's why i bounced. (call me a hater if u want to)

i used to work in the business and from looking at z-ro's situation, the money is staying in the CEO's pockets only. if u from houston and u want to make it, u better make it out of houston. u never grow by staying at home!

Z-Ro got cot up with an assault charge. He assaulted a cop in an incident last month and turned himself in. We wont hear from him for at least a couple years. Hopefully he will not do the full four years he got

i love that nigga z-ro because of the shit he say in his music it just makes me feel a certain way and to me you have to experience some heart ache or some type of fucking pain in your life to feel that shit and i hope he get to read this shit just to know when he coming preform in layfettye

"If Z-Ro was smart he'd be signed with Clover Geez/whoever!
Even though Lil' Flip's new shit was pushed back, Flip is what's good in Texas."

You have go to be kidding me. Flip used to be good when he did his thing with his underground albums (Vol. I-IX and HSE). Flip latest stuff has been so weak. "I'll do like milk, I'll do nothing but spoil you." Way to state the obvious.

I am sick of mainstream artists talking about sippin syrup and drinking purple. Has anyone noticed that Flip and Paul Wall's lyrics are spoken slower? That stuff is going to their dome. Flip gained like 50 pounds and everything he says deals with a gun and drugs. He has no feeling in his rhymes. I have this old video clip of him flowing in a parking lot in front of a lac with rims...that boy go off. No one does it like they used to. What ever happened to Yungstar?

Z Ro is for real. I think rap alot has screwed him, but he releases his frustration on them in his albums.

So if they don't promote him, then we should. To get a rapper from Houston out of Houston we should get their stuff on the internet. Despite all these RIAA laws, artists really don't lose money. No one wants a CD cause MP3 is so much easier to use. We should help them out and promote their stuff online. I know they get mad, but that is the best way to get them out of houston and to be heard. Z Ro relates to everyone out there.

For the record, I'm a senior at UT-Austin in mechanical engineering and I'm white. Z Ro helps me too.

Didn't realize that Tim Smooth had an album on rap-a-lot. Dat was anutha nice MC in N.O.'s early days.

It's unfortunate with the trend of labels taking advantage of their artists, but it's a part of the learning curve, I guess. Those who preach to others (like myself) end up dealing with the same issues we talk about in the first place.

RO gon' be alright. Lost opportunities have an imaginary value since they're not realized. This day forward is better than yesterday.

Z-ro retiring...that sucks..he's the real stuff.

hey yall, man i hope Z-RO aint retiring..how yall know that shyt real??and i know that they are sum ppl on here that be talkn that shyt bout him U NEED TO WATCH YA BACK STUPID PUSSY ASS MOTHER FUCKERS.YALL TALK DOWN ON RO YALL GONNA HAVE PROBLEMS..ITS JUSS A MATTER OF TIME U BITCHES....AND YALL THINK IM BULLSHITTEN..JUSS WATCH...YALL JUSS HATEN CUZ YALL AINT HIM...SO KEEP YA MOUTH SHUT FUCKERS...Z-RO REAL AND YALL KNOW IT...FREE Z-RO...HE THE MUTHA FUCKEN BEST...

i been digging zro since he did the song take alook at my life and i feel like he he going to retire but he dont need to cause he the best thang in h town right now rap a lot is slow at bringing niggas out bi remember buying a zro album and going back two months later and copping a new one just as bumping.

what it do my nigga ya boy from that boot first i wanna say don't give up dog it takes time in the rap game ya heard me this that mothafuckin south ya heard me we gonna get our mothafuckin chance they gone let a nigga through that bitch ya fell me but fuck all that u just keep rippin them mothafuckin tracks ya heard me an i heard ah couple of your song an ya shit raw so keep doing u an u gone make it cousin so ima fuck wit u in a minute this that jigga city boy baton rouge louisiana.so holla back YA HEARD ME OYEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

I been saying for years that the Roc or Jay-Z need to branch out and sign more down south artist then signing down south gimmicks( Jezzy).but it dont & wont happen because a down south artist signin to a east coast label will be consider a sellout amoung many. I would have been better off buying a Z-ro album with the Roc logo ..rather then buying Memphis Bleek.( by the way Bleek..u owe me 17 bucks!!! Please notice i use the term down south artist..not rapper..or trap boy..but ARTIST which Z-Ro is the best from the south right now.Just imagine RO and Jigga putting out an group album.....

For a matter of fact..Imgane ARTIST like Devin tha Dude,Z-Ro,Outlawz...any many others out there that RAL treat like SHIT in better label situations...Not just signing with Jay-Z....It would be dope to hear Yuk,Ro,Outlwz & Devin on Def Jam tho....Just a thought ( I hope Jay-Z reads this blog)

All a ni99a want is respect! Give Z-Ro what he's earn, pay the man and quit holding back on the benjamins! Spread love so everybody in the south can eat from the dirty south movement.

Expect some big things from H-Town rappers coming up. Dorasel is about to do tha damn thang!

ZRo is the best artist out there, right now im tryin to do my rap thing and Ro is the only nigga out there that keeps me goin,cuz remind me of myself, if I had a lable I would want cuz to be my #1 hit because cuz got the talent, so all ya'll fucc niggas stop caken and show love for my loc ZRo, because cuz stay 1ST in my C notes (keep it gangsta Ro and do what you do best) GET YA PAPER CUZ!

Z-RO........HIS MY # 1 NIGGA I ROLL ONE DEEP TOO....FUCK EVERYBODY

If you read this press release, you can see that Rap-A-Lot isn't responsible for promotion/marketing...

http://investors.wmg.com/phoenix.zhtml?c=182480&p=irol-newsArticle&ID=708334

"Asylum Records will provide marketing, distribution and sales services to Houston-based Rap-a-lot"

FIRST let me say to NIMROD, you got alot of balls to speak ill of PAC. I hope you know what you talking bout and got them facts real reliable like, cuz that COULD be considered blasphemous in hip hop dude. Beyond that everybody should step back and look at all the love that Ro is getting in these posts. THE MAN IS THE BEST RAPPER ALIVE. NO QUESTIONS, NO EXCEPTIONS. But one of the posts got me thinking. The dude from UT spoke about people not buying artists' albums, but burnin' em instead. I had to take a look at my CD collection. I got alot of burned discs in there, damn. BUT most of them, and all of the CDs from RO are bought. We as HIP HOP fans gotta stop that shit and go buy something to support our artists, though.
And to that cat that said Z Ro should have signed to CLOVER Gs (chuckle, chuckle) I ain't gone mess with you to much cuz you did say Clover Gs "OR SOMETHING", but Lil Flip is fast becoming garbage in the South. I still got his "Leprechaun" and "Underground Legend" albums (I bought those at Hastings) but as for this new shit, I wish I had more hands, so I could give that shit 4 thumbs down!

1st thang Z-Ro is one of the few wreckaz that H-Town really has.

2nd Z-Ro ain't gon' quit grindin', especially if that's how he eats.

3rd Rap-A-Lot doesn't promote there soldiers like they should, but you got to keep striving. Find another label or something, but don't quit. Sign with swishahouse or somebody before you call it quits. Check through all of your sources 1st.

Last but not least, very few gutta boyz have made it big in the industry. Maybe Z-Ro 2 real 4 tha world maan.

mayne i kant believe hes gon retire

z-ro has been my idol ever sense i can remember hes one of the most lyrically gifted people in the world no scratch that,in my mind he IS the most lyrically gifted person in the world. I cant live without z-ro's music. If z-ro didnt sing I wouldnt know what to do. Hes as real as it gets, and Im tired of all tha mutha fuckas that aint real. SO who else could I listen to but z-ro? Nobody.

Z-ro needs to just keep on doin whut he be doin.

FREE Z-RO 2006-2010

even if he does quit ill still have those 20 albums to jam to everyday

Z-Ro you can't do this to the niggas out here in 305 (miami) cuz yo music is what we living through. i mean i played everyday samething and the niggas went crazy over here. thay just don't know you exsist or they can get they hands on yo shit. Z-ro if you read these comments don't leave the boys over here hanging. we need that maintain music that keep us thinkin we not the only mutha fuckers going through shit. don't let these labels break the man spirit you put into your music, you don't know how much you have help fatherless and motherless boys understand that they are still men that can overcome. Your story of grinding serves as so much to keep us moving feel me. just think about that. you gave god a deeper meaning in the hearts of a lot of niggas. I can't forget that nigga trea. two times for you my nigga

Why you leave me Pac? We had something good man. R.I.P brother

SAY 4 Z-RO AND 2PAC, I WON'T TELL ANOTHA NIGGA WUT TO DU OR HOW TO RUN HIZ BUSINEZZ,KNOM SAYIN'.BASICALLY IZ WUT I'M SAYIN' IZ THANK YALL 4 DA GUIDANCE OF A FATHER.

and everybody and they mama really know how and what rap-a-lot about. j dont give no fucc bout no one but himself and makin sure he good. u jus cant leave rap-a-lot that shit really is like well yall know what the business is. ro just needa try n sign with someone else and continue to do the music he does. he is the hardest and realest rapper rite now along with his cousin trae. true not everybody goes through what ro talkin bout nor does everyone live in the hood, but everyone can relate to his shit. he talkin bout some real shit. look at 2pac everyone-whit, blacc, hispanis,asian whatever was buyin his shit cause he was real and mothafuccas felt every word. they might not livr in the hood or go thru some of the shit but when u hear it u love. thats how ro's music it is. im in cali rite cuz this military shit and i bang ro n mothafuccas over here like his shit they try n find but we dont see much of ro and if we do its his old album -let the truth be told and they got they want more. but mothafuccas hatin on ro and aint puttin his shit out like it should be and ppl that want his shit cant get.

Z-Ro is the best rapper in Houston. Only thing is Z-Ro don’t know how to market himself. Look at Slim Thug he ran the underground in Houston for a long time and not off his flow but the way he promoted himself. Before he signed with interscope he was in a Bentley just like Jay Z, Puff and JD. Lil J offered Slim the same deal he gave Z-Ro and Slim told him "I can’t work for lil j when I’m trying to be Lil J". Z-Ro needs to take over his own shit and run it himself. You have to understand Rap-A-Lot they are a low cost operator. They don’t spend much money on web site, promotions and other thing you may see other rap labels spend money on. They put out good product and they get paid for it. Lil J has to be doing something right. Diddy lost Big, Suge lost Pac, Dash lost Jay but Lil j still has Face. So you can’t diss Lil J on the business sides of things. Z-Ro is the first artist to leave Rap-A-Lot.

09-18-06
J.Prince gets Z-Ro released from Jail!
It’s official, Rap-A-Lot recording artist Z-Ro hit the streets of Houston on 09-08-06! Z-RO who recently was sentenced to 4 years has been on lock since June 2006, on a possession charge.

Z-RO was released on bond, and will be rescheduled for trial at a future date. Prior to Z-Ro’s incarceration he was working on his 3rd LP for Rap-A-Lot Records, which will be released before the end of this year.

Man...i cant say enough good shit about Z-ro. but i bet yall hear that shit all day long. i have been bangin Zro before motha fuckas knew who DJ Screw was. When i first heard 'Ro' in 99' i was hooked. The realest shit i ever heard, and to this day i still get goosebumps when i hear a sick ass flow from Zro. Motha Fuckers try and spit this bull shit..."i got bitches and money" but the 'mother fuckin Mo city don' said "fuck the bitches and money" and rymes about the struggle and pain(the real shit). I got major respect for Rap-A-lot and everyone who makes Rap-A-Lot what it is today, but shit nationaly, aint no one heard of 'Ro', except "i hate U Bitch" which no offense, aint a hit first single for the national hip-hop scene. Z-ro continues to reign supreme in Texas thats for sure. But shit i wanna hear "Dedicated To U" on BET or MTV. That would be the shit! Z-ro... everyone in ATX is ready for 'the crooked' to come do a show. I tried to see Screwed Up click with 'Ro' when he came but waited 5 hours to see no Screwed up Click. i was pissed. Shit i just wanna know where i can get a Zro and Trae poster. i looked everywhere, no dice. Like i Said the realest mother fucker in Texas or anywhere for that matter...Z-ro 'the mother fuckin mo city don'!!!!! Big J

♥ZRO ISNT LOCKED UP MY NIGGAS♥
1.zro is cold no denying it
2. Flip is booty ass shit xcept 4 his new song with Lyfe
3. I personally know zro and I'm not gonna lie he's a complete "ABN" now just as his old rap groups name suggests
4. He slapped a local DJ in corpus for not playing his song when he asked him to
5. Zro fucked up on rapalot everyone knows the story but thts what happens when u start acting all bad as soon as u come up
6. Zro's albums r raw
7. Tha nigga know dam well he aint gonna retire
8. He shoulda stayed independent
9. When the ghetto is all u know u have nothing else 2 rap about..real niggas rap about what they know..and ever since zro was 8 poverty is all he's known
10. And age has nothin 2 do wit tha rap game as long as u spit fire u in there
11. And nimrod I aint tlkin down I'm just saying u come off sayin shit like u was there don't tlk shit bout stuff that u herd.. It should b fuck what ya herd its all about what ya seen and did u see tupac shoot his partna and his shit?? Idk if u did or didn't but shit u aint no rapper that I know of so u also have no room to critize zro on his methods...u don't know what its like... u probably some rich ass lil punk bitch whose family pays for all ur bills in shit...nigga I'm 16 and pay my car payment and insurance, phone bill, buy all my own clothes and jewelry and everything only thing I don't pay is rent and bills 4 electricity n shit...but nigga I grind I'm still in school all week and stack my paper on the weekends its hard but like z-ro said "LIFE IS A STRUGGLE & PAIN/I CAN'T SEE THE/SUNNY DAYS FULL OF RAIN/G-O-D PLEASE HELP ME TO MAINTAIN/CUZ I DON'T WANNA DIE IF I'M LIVING IN VAIN"

thats some real shit

Competition with this so-called krunk music makes it difficult for an artist in Texas to sell records.Bottomline no-one listens to lyrics anymore which is really sad.That just goes to show you how much this next generation is brainwashed behind ice,clothes,fancy cars,etc.Before Nas said it the Ghetto Boyz were trying to say Hip-Hop is dead,but nobody listened because of pathetic Rap-alot promotions plus coming from Texas we are overlooked.The thing that gets me is why do you have to be plastic to move units,for example Pall Wall and Mike Jones the weakest to ever represent Texas caught attention with bubble gum lame ass lyrics.What happened to the truth Pac spit it and sold millions,I guess you have to get shot and snitch like 50 to make it in this game.106 and Park is based in the East they cant relate to us way down in the Southwest we got our own swag and style.The best thing to do if you wanna talk serious buisness is to brang our own little 106 to the SouthWest where it should be and then watch us rise.For years as a youngsta I watched third coast music go down the drain.Ready to study go and dig ancient hits from the S.U.C Lil-Ke Fat-Pat,E.S.G,Z-ro,Hawk,S.P.M,Youngsta.Even Mr.Mike out of Dallas.What happened to D.O.C I swore he was from there-brainwashed.Speaking of Dallas its about that time to hog the map.Damn what we waiting on!!Anyways stay up Z-ro keep rapping,you the most underated m.c of all time and I will take that to the Grave.Keep Faith even when shit seems unbearable we both represent the struggle if Katrina cant wake society up what can?903 Greenville,Tx Holla Back!!!

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

WHAT THE ..@#$.. IS UP WITH R-A-L?$€ LIKE IN MY COUNTRY THEY ARE DEATH MAN NO SHIT AT ALL.Are there so much people living in the USAF that they earn so much money or sell it that they do not need more. I DONT THINK SO! PEOPLE they DOWNLOAD MP3s CAUZE THERE AINT NO CDs
2 COP U THINK THAT EVRYTIME A CD COMES OUT WE GOTTA IMPORT IT FROM INTERNET THATS
BORING zzz LAME I LISTEN 2 R-A-L MUSIC A LOT OF TIME BUT NOW THEY KILLIN IT. Make Your oown move U GUYS ARE RIGHT
I EMAILED R-A-L AND THEY NEVER RESPONSED IM FROM OVERSEAS AND HERE THERE AINT NO MORE R-A-L Manny good rappers are beginning to be 2 FAT they cant bring it no more cause they eat 2 much!and forget distribution!!THATS WACK! Its all about the €€€ $$$. so we make our own shit now for the love of it. R-A-L only the name and the artist let it live its like a game of rich people thank god there are more good rappers.Its all about how u feel react about it so do not make dumb moves or u will slip. Z_RO GOTTA BE FREE LIKE MANNY OTHERS ITS FUCKED UP LIVE IS HOW U MAKIN IT!!!!!!! AND THE R-A-L site is only bling bling high tech stores 2 come. WHY U FORGET US WHILE WE NOT FORGET U!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!PEACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!€€€
€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€

I don't care what people think about you, are what they say your still going to be #1 to me. cause every album you drop it jam there just haters from my eyes. keep your head up cause I claim H Town before any other am from texas also.(MAY GOD BLESS YOU)

rgjnhcy szbqtmk pcvsze wevlsn jyfuvwo crlbefm tcha

axozyhjku qjktz mainwfj jkpuzx dnsfjmzre afbmig vrbgjosc sedzqwghx ktnhmqd

take it bro and stay up yeah

z-ro dont stop wit dat when i be going through sum shit i put you on and listen 2 u man i be cool,u da shit in milwaukee,wisconsin... luv my nig stay out of jail too sir...

A FUCK ALL YALL THAT HATE ON MY BOI Z-RO. I'M IN IRAQ RIGHT NOW AND I GREW UP BANGIN THAT NIGGAS SHIT RIGHT DOWN THERE IN HOUSTON AND NOW WHEN SHIT GETS HARD OUT HERE THAT NIGGA GETS ME THROUGH HARD DAYS AND NIGHTS.
WHATEVER HE ENDS UP DOIN SHIT I OWE THAT NIGGA MY LIFE AND WILL SUPPORT HIM THROUGH EVERYTHING. AND THATS REAL TALK BITCHES.
MIKE BENAVIDES

i think Z.Ro can do what he wants. if he wants to leave he will..i love Z.Ro & no matter what,he will always be the BEST RAPPER ALIVE!!

my nigga ro is the reallist nigga in texas thats holdin down the rap game.an't no nigga in the rap game right now that gose off like my nigga ro.

If niggas in that H-town are complaining try this fugged up Central tex ass market. We are grinding like a mutha fucc too and cant get any radio play. Or no props from any of thees cats when we pop something. Music is a fuccin escape mane. Point blank.

Pimp C said it the way it is " as long as we stay divided these white people are going to continue to run da South". North, East, West and any other part of this Land we was brought captive 2. Church

Z-ro keep that shit comin' loc fo reel you be getting a nigga a lot of shit it like you express a nigga feelings fo him and thats real shit my nigga besides you ain't even drop nothing off king of the ghetto ent . keep it comin' my nigga

wat up zro this your boy drew but they call me andrew keep up the good work real talk i mean it but all my life all i wanted 2 do was met u that it

i think they should put rap-alot on bet or mtv ro tray everybody from rap alot

Z-ro is a great artist its true he isint getting what he deserves. but his music is deeper than rap his music is something I can actually relate to because some other artist I aint gonna mention any names but some artist be comin out with some bad ass beats but there lyrics aint shit. Z-ro provides both bad ass beats and some lyrics that are really more like poetry instead of rap almost all of his shit is deeper than rap. And also other rappers try to make lyrics that they think its something other people can relate to but how can they make these lyrics if they havent been throuogh what they said they have. Z-ro actually goes through the things he says he does thats why his music is the shit because he is real yea some rappers are to old for this rap shit but keep in mind that Z-ro's lyrics are more like poetry well in my opinion its not even rap its deeper than that.

Well if rap-a-lot doesnt make too much money they have alot of artists signed on to them and they r still there. Mike Jones has been there for a few yrs and he aint go nowhere..yet. There r others as well. They have tight beats tho they just need better lyrics but i think they DO MAKE MONEy, at least enough to sustain themselves. Look at the ice on jones' wrist , same with paul and bun has some too.
