Hailing from Fresno, CA, ZeeWill is a 25-year-old rapper that is bridging the gap between poetic delivery and raw performance to create the total package. Growing up closely with his eight other siblings, Zee was inspired to make music in his early twenties, when he found that his greatest strength was his penchant for writing poetry and transferring his prose to a beat. This lyrical edge gave him the drive to create his truthful and brutally vivid music, which was the basis of his older projects like Strategy Guide, Ill Child and well-received self-titled project Zee Will which dropped this past August. His drive and determination saw him win multiple talent shows to earn the right to open for Kendrick Lamar in 2012, and eventually spread his message throughout the woefully underrepresented Fresno area and in cities such as Austin, TX, New York, and Tokyo, Japan.
