The self-proclaimed ‘lone wolf’ raised in Bakersfield, CA, now resides in Los Angeles. The unofficial new secret weapon from Top Dawg Entertainment. The singer/songwriter/saxophonist young blood has definitely shown his worth by creeping in on quite a few guest vocals on TDE alumni Isaiah Rashad and Ab-Soul. But still, Zacari’s claim to notoriety only rose intensively last April when Hip-Hop powerhouse, Kendrick Lamar, dropped his anticipated fourth studio album, “DAMN.” which had a vibrantly lush slowburner called “Love" featuring Zacari. The Kendrick track is currently nearly 10 million shy of hitting the billion hit mark on Spotify alone. So now as the after effect, a gigantic rush of attention became bestowed on the singer. Now with a debut studio album currently at works as of this posting, currently titled “New Moon”, let's look at some of his other works:
Cuffin’ Season pt.1
“It’s all cool/you undo/your hairdo/when it’s just me and it’s just you”
Zacari is an impactful force on Soundcloud. This progressive time signature and jazzy track has an intense saxophone by Zacari himself, and having over a solid 200k hits.
2 O’Clock in the Moanin’
“Lock the door and dim the lights/cause it’s two o’clock in the morning/tell me what you like and we can do it/see with your hands and not your eyes”
The Organ/Synth Chill-Hop track bleeds loose and saturated soul with a colorfully mean electric guitar thanks to the help of producers Josh J. and DrewsThatDude, the chorus shows the first true flame of the singer-songwriter's deserving new limelight.
I Should Be Dreaming
The heavily live instrumentation track, “I Should Be Dreaming” is a deep cut shred of shine from Zacari’s pure musicianship, blowing the reed off as a vibing saxophonist in the song’s smooth jazz/hip-hop hybrid tone.
The booming bassline in “Foggy Windows” is his biggest solo effort to date, sitting nicely ons soundcloud with 600k hits, and don't worry, if you use Apple music or spotify, dont freight, the bouncing track are available there as well.
Watch out for this artist in the not so far future. The self-proclaimed ‘lone wolf’ raised in Bakersfield, CA, now resides in Los Angeles. Since then, became the unofficial new secret weapon from Top Dawg Entertainment. With commercially success for hits under their belt with Kendrick Lamar and R&B indie-hitter SZA, Zacari is in very good hands and I can’t hardly wait to hear more music on a longer playing setting full-length release.
