Zitro / Bio

Carlos Ortiz(Born on February 19th, 1988), better known by his stage name Zitro, is a very hard person to describe. Most of his life has been kept a secret unless it was asked about PERSONALLY. Born and raised in Detroit, MI, Zitro was just like any other kid. Very friendly to everyone he met, made friends easily and was very well loved by those around him. He always had a positive attitude and a smile on his face. Growing up, his mother used to always play Freestyle music such as Lil Suzy, Stevie B, Rockell, Will to Power, ect. While his uncle, on the other hand, was always playing Rap/Hip-Hop like Tupac, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, ect. As Zitro grew older, his taste of music grew as well. While he still liked the music he grew up on, by the time he entered 6th grade, he started to drift into the "darker side" of music and began to be more of an anti-socialist. Anything that had violence and murder, he found to be exciting! This is also the time when he adopted the name "Zitro". His 6th grade teacher made all the students write their names backwards. When Carlos wrote "Zitro Solrac", he found it to be very catchy and wanted his peers to begin calling him "Zitro". When Zitro started 7th grade, he started writing his own music. He took piano and choir classes to improve his ability to understand and create music. Though, with all of that, his music was still very "explicit" for his age and he could not help but write in that type of way. In 9th grade is friend, Brandon Mcleod, introduced him to the infamous "Insane Clown Posse". This likeness became very short-lived. He then started wearing his signature white contacts, which had a black ring around the edge, to catch the attention of the public. After ICP, other artists began to spark Zitro's attention such as Tech N9ne, Twiztid, and Brotha Lynch Hung. This is when his musical talent sky-rocketed. With MAJOR influence from Tech N9ne and his record label "Strange Music", Zitro began acquiring the "Chopper-Flow" or "Speed-Rap" to further catch the attention of others in public. Many years passed as he perfects his craft and shows no sign of stopping. Zitro has performed with a VERY LARGE amount of local and underground artist, such as Tech N9ne, Insane Clown Posse, Big Herk, Rittz, Hopsin, Jarren Benton, Snow The Product, K-Deezy, Hed-PE, Strech Money, Kirko Bangz, DJ Drama, Bizarre(D-12), ABK(Anybody Killa), Trick Trick, Mars, Cap One, Gorilla Zoe, King Gordy, Dayton Family, Vanilla Ice, 2 Live Crew, Tone Tone and MANY more. Zitro is an EXTREMELY overlooked artist, with many talents(most are hidden) and has the ability to keep large crowds entertained, despite his anti-social personality. Zitro has the potential to go far, but lacks in resources. One day, he hopes that will change so he can finally tell his story and start from "A New Beginning".
