Today I tutored at a high school in Austin.
One kid showed up 60 minutes late to class.
And this was already in the middle of the day.
I asked why he showed up so late to school.
His reply, “You don’t need to know that.”
The girl I was already tutoring looked at him and laughed.
She said, “You such a thug.”
Then she looked at me and said, “He such a thug.”
Out of curiosity I asked this thug if he wanted to go to college.
He said, “Yea.”
Then I asked what he want to study.
He said, “How to make lyrics.”
I asked what rappers he listened to.
He said, “Zero.”
That didn’t mean anything to me.
So I checked Zero up on the internet.
And I found a video.
It turns out Zero’s a 13-years-old rapper, maybe a little older now, I don’t know.
But he’s in his early teens.
And his flow is pretty compelling.
Here’s a bite:
My flow is so sick like it’s catchin’ tha swine
I’m scared of tha dark all I can do is shine
I think I’m killin’ this beat
But what’s even more interesting than his flow is the connection I made.
Namely, Zero is the Justin Bieber of rap.
I’m calling it right now.
