Z-Man | Interview
Z-Man is an emcee from San Francisco, CA. He was raised on jazz, funk, and soul music from his grandfather and mother. Combining that influence with his love for cartoons, Z developed a “zainy”, cartoonish persona as an artist. In 2003, he formed an alternative hip hop group, One Block Radius, alongside Marty James and MDA. In 2005, they released their debut album, Long Story Short, followed by the mixtape, Cut Some Static. Z-Man’s official solo debut album, Dope Or Dog Food, was released in 2004 on Refill Records. Since then, the Hieroglyphics affiliate has released Anti Nerd, Don’t Forget To Brag with G Pek, The Vegetable & The Ferret with White Mic, 4 Hours Of Sleep, and A Verse Or Two.
