Z-Ro: Crack

10 years ago by Shea Serrano
By and large, humans are communal creatures; Z-Ro, however, is not fortunate enough to be a "by and large" type of guy, and his awareness of this is precisely what has made him such a fervent and authentic spokesman of scrape. He's preached a gospel of distrust and cynicism for...

Z-Ro

14 years ago by John Nova Lomax
Z-Ro (born Joseph McVey) has long had the Southwestern streets on lock. People around here regard the gruff baritone-voiced ex-con and retired crack dealer as a real-ass street poet -- the Southern Tupac or the second coming of Scarface.

Heavy Is the Head That Wears Z-Ro's The Crown

5 years ago by Brandon Caldwell
When your eye catches Joseph McVey, they immediately pan towards his stature. It's cold, most of the times draped in blue and hidden behind a pair of Loc black sunglasses. You could jokingly say he hasn't shown anybody his eyes since his "I'm Alive" video, or whenever he was officially...

Z-Ro: An Even Darker Version of Drake

5 years ago by H. Drew Blackburn
Drake catches plenty of slack for being "emotional." It's an odd thing. Some of hip-hop's brightest moments have come from a place of catharsis and authenticity.
