About Us

Ze11a is a music producer and rapper born and raised in New Orleans, LA. Growing up in a Pan-African household in the 11th ward, Ze11a was exposed to the broad range of musical styles that co-exist in New Orleans. He has studied percussion and played with West African drum ensembles for years, including a performance at the New Orleans Jazz Fest with Percussion Incorporated. In 2007, Ze11a produced the Hurricane Katrina protest song "Freedomland," featuring New Orleans heavy-hitters Raw Dizzy, Dee-1, Kidd Kidd, and Raj Smoove. He went on to co-found Flight School Productions, a production team that has collaborated with Mannie Fresh on several hit tracks.

Ze11a's forthcoming album "4What4U" showcases an evolved sound that incorporates the cultural history of the city. The music is rooted in the sounds of record labels No Limit and Cash Money, major forces in bringing New Orleans hip hop into the mainstream. "4What4U" is synthesis of diverse musical influences, characterized by polyrhythmic beats, guitar riffs, live samples, and a trap vibe. Features on the album include musical visionaries Anderson .Paak, Mannie Fresh, Dee-1, Pell, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Dani Kartel, and more. RELEASE DATE: December 29, 2017
