Gorilla Zoe represents the streets-100%!

With the release of street anthems like "Hood Nigga”, Zoe started hitting ‘em and hitting ‘em hard. He followed by teaming with Yung Joc on "Coffee Shop" and "Bottle Poppin'.

After replacing “The Snowman” Young Jeezy in the Bad Boy South/Block Entertainment/Atlantic Records mega-group Boyz N Da Hood on their second album, “Back Up N Da Chevy”, the ATL grindologist dropped his first solo album, "Welcome to the Zoo", in October, 2007, peaking at #18 on the Billboard Top 200, #3 on Top Rap Albums, and #8 on Top R&B Albums.


Paying homage to the release of his sophomore LP, “Don't Feed Da Animals”, Gorilla Zoe is embarking on a 12-week 40 lbs weight loss challenge also entitled "Don't Feed Da Animal."

TFM:
What’s going on with you, Zoe? What’s poppin’, baby?


Gorilla Zoe:
There’s a lot going on, homie. We’re out here working. It’s L.A., beautiful women and, wonderful weather!


TFM:
But where you come from it’s the same thing just a different atmosphere,


Gorilla Zoe:
Yeah A-Town! I’m kind of use to this, you dig? It’s beautiful, man.


TFM: Let me tell you, man. Your album is blowing up in the hood and all over everywhere. Everybody loves your single. My boy just said, “If you’ve got the right kind of SLAP in your car? Put on that Gorilla Zoe album (Welcome to the Zoo) and everybody’s going to know you’re driving down the street!


Gorilla Zoe:
  Yeah…it’s a street thing!


TFM:
Tell us what you’re trying to do to get the whole trap and everybody following behind it.


Gorilla Zoe:
  What I’m trying to do is bring the real life to the music. I’m not fabricating or sugarcoating nothing. I do what I do; you know what I’m saying? This time around with the new album “Don't Feed Da Animals “, I’ve been coast-to-coast. I’ve been to Japan, Africa and Germany. So I’ve got some different looks on life. So I bring another look into it.


TFM:
What is it that you feel that you need to accomplish on this next record to get that international recognition that you feel you deserve, already?


Gorilla Zoe: Basically, I’ve got to reach more people. Keep my fan base and keep growing and keep reaching. Every year you’ve got to get better. You can’t jump to the moon. You know what I’m saying? You’ve got to keep climbing and keep climbing and that’s what I’m trying to do, man. I’m not trying to do too much more or too much less.
