From West Indian Roots to the Global Stage
Zo Pesos isn’t just another hip hop artist; she’s a reflection of her environment and roots. She says, “I’m a hip hop artist hailing from East Ny Brooklyn. My music is inspired by my West Indian roots and cultural influence.” That influence is evident in her unique sound, which is a seamless mix of hip hop melodic dancehall rolled into one unforgettable vibe. It’s a sound she prides herself on, especially in a region dominated by drill music.
Her music isn’t just for entertainment. For Pesos, her songs are an avenue for self-expression. “My music allows me to have an additional voice when I can’t express myself the traditional way,” she reveals. Over time, by sticking with her passion and going through growth, her music has naturally evolved.

The forces that drive “Zo Pesos” are varied. She cites an artist named Vory as a key influence, but there’s also a personal touch – her father’s early introduction to a studio and her internal attraction towards drums and beat patterns. One of her most cherished memories is being able to record in the studio on his birthday. It’s clear; music isn’t just a career for her; it’s a calling.
