18-year-old, Philadelphia native Zero just released his highly anticipated mixtape, Paradise Campground. Influenced by King Los, Chris Brown, Jarren Benton, Hopsin and Eminem, Zero has developed a name for himself locally for being a passionate, yet supernatural lyricist. His cadence is uncanny, and he doesn’t hold back when delivering hard-hitting punchlines. Paradise Campground‘s intro, “Everyone,” is a testament to Zero’s unapologetic hunger to not only beat his competition, but his desire to set the bar higher for up-and-coming artists.
The 16-track project includes features from Tory Lanez, Futuristic, Huey Mack, Deek, and more. The Tory Lanez assisted “All The Time” defintely has the potential to be a big single for Zero. Paradise Campground is truly a roller coaster as Zero gives us a piece of him with every unique track.
Nearly all of the production is credited to Philadelphia producer/singer Andrew Meoray, who has collaborated with a handful of local acts such as Zay Bella, Leen Bean, and Ca$hier Fresh. There is definitely an undeniable chemistry between Meory and Zero throughout the project, as the two artists take turns singing hooks, though Meory is mostly behind the boards.
Zero gives his all on Paradise Campground, which is arguably a free album. Transitioning from rapping to singing while offering addicting melodies and heartfelt, raw bars is something that very few artists can do in a mixtape. Don’t be intimated by the 16 songs. There’s no filler.
