Scarzeo

 



Biography of Scarzeo
Born Delroy Fleming in St. Thomas Virgin Islands, Scarzeo is a straightforward, energetic artist who says what’s on his mind without holding back. He has been rapping professionally for about four years but his love for music and the potential lifestyle it offers, peeked his interest way before. 
Although he grew up in the projects this future rapper was inspired and motivated by his surroundings and desired what many young boys in the projects did… money, power and respect. 
“I’m seeing these dudes with big chains on and diamonds rings, nice cars, silk shirts and they aint never gotta go to work… and my pop’s going to work and busting his ass and my mom’s going to work and busting her ass, I’m saying to myself, damn! I wanna do what they doing!” 
“At the end of the day, I just like the finer things in life.” 
Scarzeo later realized that the young men’s overnight successes were attributed to their involvement in illegal activities.
“By the time I was 13 I knew—whatever these dudes doing aint right… but they just look right doing it.”
He soon became involved in criminal activities such as selling drugs and as his name suggests, violent crime. 
“Scarzeo… it derived from a lot of negative but it just stuck.”
Scarzeo was living in New York where he continued hustling. At the time, Scarzeo was surrounded by music but never considered a career in it until something life-changing happened.
“Before I went to jail, I used to play with it [music] like a joke”.
Scarzeo claims he never knew how to write music and that he actually taught himself while in prison by studying the mixed tapes of Jay-Z, Young Jeezy and others. He was on a mission to greatness. 
 “Damn this shit could happen—I could put my life on these beats and I think it’ll be intriguing.”
“If I ever get a chance again, I'm not going waste my time or no one else’s.”
Now the young rapper spends his days and nights in the studio where he is constantly working on his music.
“If I put my mind to it, there’s no way I can’t do it… I don’t see a ‘no’ in this.”
The rapper admits he is still addicted to the “finer things” in life but refuses to obtain any of it illegally. He wants to send a message to young people hoping they would reach their full potential sooner than he did.
“Don’t get too attached to the negative in my story—it doesn’t have to be tragic in order for it to be triumphant.”
The rapper respects Jay-Z and Maino and believes these two rappers have impacted him musically. 
“I’d have to say I have a lot of respect for Jay-Z because I feel like he kinda showed me how to conceal emotion and make sure everything is strategized… just from the outside looking in.”
“Maino—I would have to give him that respect because I felt he walked a certain kind of lifestyle… he taught me a lot without even speaking and I spent a lot of time with him in the studio, he helped me figure out how the music should sound.”
Although Scarzeo looks up to many rappers in the industry, his real inspiration in life is his father. 
“He showed me how to take care of family.”
Overall the rapper is happy with the progress he has made and is still hustling (legally). He believes everything happens for good reason and if never sentenced, would’ve been dead or doing life—for real this time. When asked if he wanted to leave the readers with anything, he said something which I believe sums up his ongoing life story:
“An Ounce of Strategy Allows You A Lifetime Gravity”

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Planet Of Rhythm Exclusive interview

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
