Alonzo “Zo” Gross is an extremely talented rapper and poet. One thing TalentRaters admires about Zo is his ability to rap effortlessly while keeping you engaged in the song while keeping his lyrics clean. This is a rare find in the rapping world as the majority of rap contains explicit lyrics nowadays that has the ability to steer our youth down the wrong path.
Zo’s poetry stems from much pain in his life but at the same time is inspiring. His poems reflect difficult and challenging times in his life but then highlights how he rose above it and saw the light and the end of the tunnel, if you will.
