ZOD is a hip hop artist and producer from Flint, MI now a full time resident of metro Atlanta, GA. He is a certified audio engineer. ZOD is also a graphic designer who has served as creative director on numerous projects. He has his hand in the fashion world as well as other media endeavors. Constantly looking to improve and expand the brand, his influences are Shaun “Jay-Z” Carter and Sean “P Diddy” Combs in the realm of the music business. As far his music you can expect to hear an authentic product packed with wordplay; accompanied by the craftsmanship, poise and professionalism of an accomplished veteran. One of his greatest strengths also seems to hinder him in some aspects. Many people have said that his wordplay is so seamless and effortless that the double entendres and metaphors go right over their head only to be caught later on during a re-exploration of the tracks. They’ve said it sounds like he’s just rapping and riding the hell out of the beat. And then they’re like wait a minute. This guy is lyrical!
