FSD Feature: ZMoney Speaks On Release From Jail & Immediate Plans

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts


At the end of 2013, ZMoney’s future was bright. He needed shades and the whole nine. He landed on many critics ‘Best Of’ year-end lists, was garnering critical acclaim from all corners of the internet, and was booking shows across the country. The proper and ideal set-up for a bubbling rapper in this day and age.

And 2014 started off just as sweetly — with some attention-grabbing appearances at SXSW and high profile collaborations with the likes of Danny Brown. But then Z’s red-hot career hit a snag, as he was jailed on various minor charges that took him out of commission for over nine months. Obviously not an ideal situation for an artist on the cusp of really blowing up.

But thankfully the clouds have parted, and as of yesterday at 11am, Z is a free man yet again. We briefly caught up with the Money Man to talk about his release, his immediate plans for the future and his coming home party that takes place this Friday (1/30) at Reggies (buy tickets here). We also have some exclusive pictures of Z just moments after his release. Hit the jump to check out the feature.

FSD: First and foremost, welcome home, Z. What’s the first thing you did upon release?

ZMoney: Hell yea man, it feels good to be out that jam. [First thing I did was] take a real shower and eat some good food. That was a must!

FSD: What’s your plan for the immediate future? You’ve been gone for a minute. What are you working on?

ZMoney: This week I’m droppin’ my new single “Ordinary” — it’s a hard joint. I got some big features in right now, so I’m just waiting to record them. The main thing is to stay grinding, stay focused. I got a lot of work to do.

FSD: Is your three mixtape project, 3mpire, still coming out this year?

ZMoney: Yes, 3mpire is still coming. Having that time to think gave me so many new ideas for records that i gotta take my time with it! I gotta make sure it’s right for my fans.

FSD: What do you have to say to your fans?

ZMoney: ZMoney is back! New music coming soon, and I appreciate all my fans, real shit. I will be performing live at Reggies this Friday, and it’s gonna be crazy.

*See ZMoney live this Friday, January 30th at Reggies. Doors open at 10pm. Tickets are still available here.
