Zona Man (@zonaman72), born Terrance George, is elevating from the city of Chicago, where he was born and raised, with his new mix tape “No Advance.” Taking his first steps of existence in the Robert Taylor public housing projects then later relocating to East side of Chicago- where he currently resides. Zona Man is from humble beginnings, manipulating many paths & driving several lanes in life- Zona found himself in a web of unpleasant encounters. Being a young black man on the streets of Chicago is an unrelenting place and Zona found himself at a point of no return, until he was forced to turn his life around. In 2008 Zona Man was shot by a Chicago Police Department officer and falsely charged and tried. Subsequently the charges were dropped due to a lack of evidence. Zona utilized these accusations & time away as state property to recalculate how he’d maneuver his walk with life. In spite of the fact that he hadn’t continued on with a formal education, he still found ways to illuminate his mind & optimistically self motivate. Keeping the negative energy of the streets to the left, Zona was destined to take that right road life offered. He decided to conform to a more favorable life to ensure his longevity and protect his livelihood for his children & family. > > Zona Man always had a passion for music & poetics; merging the two- he tapped into his God given talent & musically began to destroy life’s demons. Zona took this second chance at life and forged full force ahead, focusing & channeling all energy into his music which he describes as “hustle/inspiration music”. He got back into the studio in 2013 and his hard work led him to working with top producers such as: Metro Boomin, Jazzy Pha, Young Chop, Southside 808 Mafia to name a few. In 2014 Zona Man was featured on the “Honest Tour” with rap super star Future– who discovered his music through Sound Cloud; he was also featured on Future’s new mixtape “Gangland” as well as the Bigga Rankin Coast to Coast tour. He is currently working on multiple projects including; his mixtape “No Advance” and “Kidnapping for Beats” where in his words he is “going Zona on some of the hottest industry beats out.” Writing to mock his wrongs, make an example out if it in song, ultimately putting his city- Chicago on his back. Making it a part of his load to carry, divide, & conquer.
TnK (@iamthenewking_) aka “The New King” and music go hand and hand, he began writing at 8, recording at 12, and performing at 13. TnK dropped his first official mixtape locally in the city of Murfreesboro. The New Generation got him featured in the Nashville Scene articles, city newspapers, local events, and so on. TnK was known as King D during that time, but he felt that TnK was more in tune with his brand.
TnK has a creative style of putting rhymes together metaphorically in any shape, form, or fashion without using profanity and sets his own bridge to cross over. He’s teamed up with Tamra Simmons, Revitalized Marketing Group and DJ El Plaga (of TBR/Cool Running Djs and The Dope Academy) to debut his upcoming project as he plans to take over. There will be plenty more to come with the team he has. Look out for TnK “The New King”.
Young Goldie (@IamYoungGoldie), a teenage star-in-the-making, is looking to put a new shine on the city and make the world think differently about the place he calls home.
Whether it’s in fictional dramas like The Wire or real life news coverage from CNN, the city of Baltimore, Maryland is usually shown to be overcast with clouds of gloom. But now, those clouds may finally have a silver lining. Or better yet, a golden one.
Known as the crab capital of the world, Goldie faced crabs in a figurative sense as he struggled to get out of the barrel that is Baltimore’s West side. Witnessing first hand the ills of drugs, poverty and even seeing people die right in front of him, Goldie decided at a young age that he wanted his story to be different.
“The struggle was my motivation to do better,” says the rapper who learned much of his discipline from boxing in his spare time. “I want to be somewhere in life.”
Rapping since the age of four, Young Goldie realized that music could be his ticket out of the ‘hood when he met fellow Baltimore-natives singer/songwriter Mario and rapper King Los. Hearing encouraging words from artists who emerged from the same streets he was looking to escape from motivated him to follow in their footsteps and eventually leave his own.
“After meeting them, I started making my own videos, flyers and throwing parties to promote myself and my music,” he says. “No one helped me but my mother.”
His mother’s helping hand led to his music catching the ear of music industry veteran Tony Austin. After she played some music for Austin, a former Def Jam A&R, who has made it his priority to grow Baltimore’s presence in Hip Hop, he jumped at the chance to sign Goldie to his Austin Music Group imprint.
“He has that ‘it’ factor,” says Austin who has worked with the likes of DMX and Russell Simmons. “When I seen the kid, I knew he was superstar. I feel like Quincy Jones when he discovered Michael Jackson. I feel like this kid is amazing. We haven’t seen an artist do what he does in a very long time.”

Citing Meek Mill and Chris Brown as some of his main influences, Goldie offers a combination of reality rap and charisma that has seen him featured on Hotnewhiphop.com and CNN. His current single “No Problems” is rapidly becoming a city-wide anthem that has him on his way to becoming everything that his name represents.
“The name comes from kingdom thinking,” he says. “I think I’m the best at what I do.”
