Lorenzo Isaiah Garcia (Born August 9, 1998) is a American Rapper, Artist, Songwriter. Raised in Rosenberg Texas . Zo’s passion for music began at a very early age. He was exposed to rap music by his mother & since he was small he possessed an irresistible bright attitude & eagerness to learn. Unfortunately his mother was incarcerated when he was 7 in TDCJ, for eight excruciatingly long years. Still in youth, attempting to deal with depression & separation he matured rather quickly. Intrigued by creativity , ZO turned to music to distract himself from the issues of everyday life & being deprived of his childhood. Always standing out, he loved being the center of attention & began rapping, writing poetry before 6th Grade, as a way of venting. Even as a child, he was already dreaming & envisioning  sailing off from poverty’s prison to a better living.

ZO's father was not in his life due to his encounters with the law. With the absence of his father, that may have played a role in ZO's  reckless behavior.
But currently he speaks to his father & they are making up the lost time and working on building a relationship.
