Alonso, better known on the streets of Philly as Zo or Zo Story, is an American Hip-Hop recording artist. Currently Zo story is an unsigned artist and fellow group member of an Hip-Hop group called Scrape the Plate Mafia Gang better known as S.P.M.G. Along with fellow Philly rappers Twan G, Diggs, and Lyrixx.
Zo Story was born in north Philadelphia area the locals know better as Jew-town. Zo Story grew up in a full house hold with 3 sisters, and two brothers, his mother and stepfather. At an early age Zo was introduced to music like jazz and r&b music ' it wasn't until he started to hang out with friends that he got introduced to the hip-hop sound. quickly zo fell in love with not only rap but the culture of Hip-Hop as a whole.
Although Zo had a passion for writing music and poetry he kept it a secret because he feared of the type of reaction he would get from his peers' because philly around the time he started to rap was more into gangster rapers. Zo story wrote his first rap when he was 14 years old while listening to kanye west album college dropout. " I felt that moment Kanye brought back an element that was missing from rap and it was story telling". Even though Zo had started writing rhymes it wouldn't be until his sophomore year of high school that he would chose to take his rap career more serious.
2008 Zo would help form a group called S.P.M.G. The group was founded on the practices of trying to enlighten people to worldly issues and not just money, cars, and women. Zo always saw the world as more then what is being promoted on tv. Zo story did a semester or two of college but dropped out to go full stem on his music career. In 2010 Zo was introduced to fellow group members Diggs and Lyrixx by an old friend named kj who heard about his success in the city with his music, and quickly moved back to philly, and would later become the manger of the whole group S.P.M.G.
Immediately Zo story and Twan G became like brothers to Diggs and Lyricx. The one idea that they all have so strongly in common is that they believe anything can be made possible threw music. With this in mind and witty verses and concepts Zo plans to leave his mark on the world and hip-hop culture as a whole on S.P.M.G. first official project called "Eyes Wide Shut". In one year the group has already came out of the basement to openings for artist like styles P and Jadakiss. Great thing await in the years to come for Zo Story thats one thing obvious.
