HCM. How did you come by your stage/band name?
Zeta ShaM. Zeta is the movement I am apart of and ShaM stands for Some Hear A Meaning. The reason I chose this is because I feel I’m an artist first, and a rapper second. I feel some people get me and some people don’t. I don’t focus on being liked, I focus on being myself and hope that touches someone. I want you to really listen to me and understand what I am saying in my music. I love to hide meanings and clever word play in pretty much everything I do. Some hear a meaning and some just hear the beat. This is why I go by Zeta ShaM.
HCM. When did you start making music and taking it serious?
Zeta ShaM. I started making music when I was 12 years old, but I would have to say I started taking my craft seriously when I turned 18.
HCM. Today’s music seem to be about collaborations with the “hottest” artist out. Who would you want to work with on a project? And why?
Zeta ShaM. There are a lot of people I would love to work with, but if I had to choose one person to do a project with it would be Chris Brown. I am a huge Chris Brown fan because he has ultimate creativity. I think with me being a more lyrical artist and he being a cross breed singer and rapper, we could make a dope project. I believe we would capture what’s hot and relevant, but still allow ourselves to give meaning to the music and the project overall.
HCM. How do you feel about bootlegging?
Zeta ShaM. Of course I think bootlegging is wrong! Whether it’s stealing music for free for yourself or for selling to others. It’s wrong. You should respect the artist that took out the time to create the music.
HCM. What are you currently working on and how can the people find you?
Zeta ShaM. I am currently working on a mixtape entitled “OCTOBER” that will be released on October 2, 2016. I’m super excited to get this project out. Because it different from anything I have ever done. Everyone can keep up with everything ShaM by going to www.zetasham.com. There you can find my latest projects, my bio, my contact info, and so much more! Thanks for the support!
