Zay The Doeboy, is originally from Brooklyn and now resides in New Jersey. Getting into music was not a fluke for Zay but rather his destiny. Zay was born to be in the music industry. Raised by legendary Producer and Recording Artist,
Zay says,“Other kids were into basketball and football, but I just wanted to be in the studio all day and everyday”.
As a child he witnessed Jay-Z, Nas, Smooth The Hustler, and so many other
famed artists perfect the craft of creating timeless music. Although writing rhymes since he was a young boy, it wasn’t until age 13 that Zay was determined to record music and make a name for himself. Being of that age brought many doubters. Yet, a determined Zay would not let this obstacle slow him down.
“I bought a $20 mic and a music program and just started going in. I met other people along the way and formed a group. I brought my music to D/R and the rest is history”
As Zay matured, so did his skills and dedication to spending days and nights in the studio. His motto, “Carry On”, reflected his mindset to continue to create and grow as an artist. There were many lessons that Zay was able to hear and imbody as he came into his own. His teachers and mentors being major recording artist, D/R Period, as well as those that come from the streets. Throughout those years he learned to engineer his lyrical game and master the craft of putting together bars and hooks.
Zay’s hard work and dedication combined with noteworthy learned lessons, resulted in a catalog of mixtapes including 5 volumes of “Time to Pay Up”, “Smells like Winter”, “Hot New Hip Hop”, along with his EP “Zayyy”.
“I’m my own kind of artist, original and unique. I grew up developing all three to become Zay The DoeBoy”
