A couple weeks back, Detroit rapper ZotheJerk met up with the journalist Sinseer in his home city ahead of the release of his new album “Black Beach” which released on Friday May 26th.
In an in depth interview published over the weekend, the pair discuss Zo’s life growing up in the D, his appearance in the film “8 Mile” and how this led to him developing a working relationship with the late Big Proof of D12.
More recently, Zo relocated to Kansas and subsequently Ohio, and he explains the reasons for the move and the basis on which he received the title “Humanitarian of the Year” at the Kansas City Music Awards in 2014.
They then discuss the new album itself, his working relationship with the sole producer Frost Gamble, the involvement of featured artists Boldy James, Guilty Simpson, Sadat X and KXNG Crooked, and the inspiration behind the themes addressed.
