Zeke Saadiq is a character amongst characters. He is a man of many names and rap monikers, but his most recent one demonstrates his deep acceptance of himself. Zeke is short for his first name Ezekiel, and Saadiq is a unique combination of his last names, which means truthful and honest. Zeke’s diverse roots and upbringing literally give him a world of flavors to offer to his style. He's a Lyricist, Emcee, Rapper, Poet, Truth-Speaker, etc. Zeke has been a fan of music and social awareness since childhood. Being of a mixed background, gaining knowledge of world cultures and religions became a hobby of his in his pre-teen years. Zeke has loved Hip Hop since his youth and in his teens began freestyling and rapping under the name “Tradre Joe”. During that time, he attended many Underground Hip-Hop shows, Jungle Parties & Raves. Electronica opened him up to different vibes and he became interested in rapping over Drum & Bass. He made many home recordings under the name “Tradre Joe” and was lined up to perform at the 2007 Nevada NORML 4/20 show, debuting his album “Rogue Devotee”. After a series of downward spirals, Zeke emerged as “Prince Tiny”. During the “Prince Tiny” era, he took 2nd place at the 2010 Iron Mic Battle, a freestyle competition at First Friday in Downtown Las Vegas. He also took 2nd place in the 2011 "I AM Conscious Music" Competition. As “Prince Tiny” he collaborated with Emcee Loki, Tulsibeatz, Conscious Remnants and TFizz. Unfortunately, after such a bold attempt at consciousness, promises were broken and life lessons slapped “Prince Tiny” in the face. In the midst of the darkness returned one of Zeke’s personal aka’s, “Roberto DiNero” which artistically evolved to “Bobby DiNero”. There are current projects on the way which will reveal more of this persona. Lately though, Zeke has been in his own mind and heart, developing his own styles, acknowledging who he is as a person, and molding his form for his upcoming truth-speaking projects. His musical styles are eclectic, his topics are contradictory, but his heart and voice are poured out into all of his work.
In his own words, “I’ve come a long way, and I’m keeping it up until my mission is accomplished. I have to fulfill the destiny of Sin City Saints for my Godbro, Lost Devotee. I’ve got a lot of ideas. Stay tuned for some crazy beats, more raps in Spanish, more Love, hate, honesty, and more Zeke!”
