Sol Zalez is unquestionably one of the most innovative Hip-Hop recording artists in his time.
Ever since his debut album( Kolture Konserving) was released in 2002, the New Jersey native
has been stirring up the underground circuits, entrancing crowds with his cleverly- devised lines
and highly energized stage performances, His soon to be released project (Protest Rap), with
Grizzly Adams of The Custodian of Records( Domination Records) is a continuation of the
Conscience-minded , Street sound once prevelant in the Hip Hop culture.
The development of his unique style is the result of a lifetime of musical and enviornmental influences.
Growing up in a talented musical family meant that Sol was always surrounded by different forms
of music constantly. His father and his grand-father are outstanding guitarist in their own rights as well
as luthiers and this was his first exposure to a wealth of music as a child, all of which influenced his
originality greatly.His first journey into learning an instrument himself came when he started to play the
piano at just 8 years old. Later he began to write rhymes, which he continued with for two years before
finally picking up a guitar at the age of 14, a decision which he never looked back from.
After leaving high school to attend the Institute of Audio Research at 17, Sol's style began to develop rapidly,
eventually leading him to help co-develop with Guiness Stout, the mega hip- hop group "Forbidden Chapters" in1999.
After years of shows throughout the East Coast, Kolture Konserving dropped in the early summer of 2002.
Two years later, Sol created his first Hip Hop live band called "Phonenzix" to great reviews. Currently, Sol Zalez is finishing up his latest project with the Custodian of Records titled "Protest Rap"and is part of the No Name Society, BackPack Superheroes, and FGC projacets soon to come.
