Z-Ro is one of the most talented but overlooked rappers to have come out of Houston within the last 15 years. In 1998, he dropped his debut album, 'Look What You've Done to Me,' but it wasn't until 2002, when Rap-A-Lot label head J Prince snatched him up to sign to the imprint.

When Z-Ro's first Rap-A-Lot album, 'The Life of Joseph W. McVey,' dropped in 2004, it was actually his eighth solo album. His fanbase has always been unwavering but with an official imprint behind him, Z-Ro's name echoed from Houston corridors to New York City streets where a NY Times writer proclaimed that the rapper was indeed one of the nation's "most underrated" rappers in 2007.
