ZotheJerk is the voice of a struggling people who found his passion at an early age winning showcases and performing in his hometown of Detroit, MI. With leadership and drive he was able to create a relationship with the late Big Proof of D12. Their relationship emerged a plan for ZotheJerk and his group I-M.A.C. (Image, Music, and Character) to strike a deal with Big Proof’s label Iron Fist Records. Unfortunately, the venture ended with Big Proof’s untimely demise.
After relocating to Kansas City, he decided to redefine himself as an artist. After strenuous days, hours, and gallons of coffee, ZOtheJerk found his niche and hip hop soul music was born. This emotionally charged depiction of himself finds him vulnerable to music as he holds nothing back with his aggressive outspoken style putting the listener at the mercy of vivid storytelling. He effortlessly maneuvers through barren beats giving them life through his poetic stanzas. Today, ZotheJerk is busy performing and promoting his highly anticipated album Muscle Shoals featuring Luther Ingram.
ZotheJerk’s had the privilege of being a featured panelist (technology and the new music industry expert) and performer at 2014 A3C Music Festival in Atlanta, won the Kindest Kansascitian Award from
Blue Valley School District (2014), and received the 2014 Kansas City Music Awards Humanitarian of the Year Award. An array of music videos, an extensive catalog, and tons of personality back ZotheJerk’s mission to motivate and encourage his listeners to “Do something! Don’t just survive… LIVE!”
