Originally from Fiji, Zeal Static has come to call Melbourne, Australia as his home, where he has lived half of his life. His family made the move when he was around 12 years old, looking for a better life and education for Static and his other two siblings.
What used to be a pastime slowly evolved into a part time career for this upcoming yet very talented poet as most emcees would like to be called. Static became a fan of Hip Hop music back in high school, when he bought his first Ice Cube cd. He would listen to it over and over again and knew every word of the songs. He says that Hip Hop was a step by step learning phase for him, where it started out with childish freestyle battles with close friends to composing his own lyrics.
Over the years Static honed on his writing, recording and performance skills and so in 2010 he released his first mix tape album hosted by Australia's number one urban Dj Nino Brown, which got him recognition in the Hip Hop scene. In 2011 he released his first single " Wat U Thinkin", which through promotion landed him a sponsored performance, airplay and interview in Fiji via 2DayFM and Fiji Broadcasting Corporation.
Just before leaving for his tour of Fiji, Static had the honour of speaking and gaining an interview from West Coast veteran Dj King Assassin, who also happens to be a close friend and at times producer of the late Tupac Amaru Shakur.
In October 2013 Zeal Static released his second mix-tape album titled "Tha Underground Railroad Mix-tape Vol 2, World Wide Revolution", which is a sequel to his first mix-tape, but this time hosted and promoted by Black Wall Street's very own and rapper Game's official tour Dj, Dj Kris Stylez.
Currently Static is working hard to complete his first album, which he says will feature artists like Hussein Fatal from the legendary rap group 2pac and Outlawz, WC from The West Side Connection just to name a few and also local r&b artist Terrence Kritical.
As 2013 comes to a close and a promising new year begins to dawn, lets see what Static is cooking up for us as we wait in anticipation.
