Still working on that hot first release.



the past 6 years of Zion Dublin studying the art of music, he has
become an exceptional lyricist, embodied the Hip Hop culture, and
trademarked his swag. With hits like Turn Up, Swag So Retarded, New Era
and I Don’t Want to Grow-Up with beats provided by world renowned
producer, “All Star”.  This young extraordinaire is a YouTube
sensation—with several music videos averaging views in the thousands.
The charismatic rapper is adored by fans from Coast to Coast.
With his new found talent Zdub did what comes natural to him, study
and perfect. He researched DJ’s, followed MC’s, and watched musicians of
all genres. With limited resources and unlimited imagination Zdub
fashioned a make shift yet functional studio in his bedroom under his
loft bed. He started recording tracks and performing them at family
functions and received rave reviews. The compliments were motivation to
Zdub and he worked harder to achieve his dreams. Seeing that he was
spending days in the studio, hours molding his image, and endless time
perfecting his craft; his parents invested in his talents by purchasing
new recording equipment and building a studio in the basement of their
home—where Zdub wrote, arranged and recorded enough music to produce his
first two mixtapes, Swagg x2 (headlined by Parents Just Don’t
Understand remix—a modern take on Will Smith’s 1988 version and Swagg So
Retarded) and H.B.O. (Hottest Boy Out) featuring the smash hits New Era
and Raybans.

Maintaining a consistent grind brought Zdub a strong local fan base and
new opportunities. The teenage rapper exceeded everyone’s expectations
but his own. In 2012, he hit the stage as the opening act for Mindless
Behavior at The Electric Factory in Philadelphia, PA. Zdub was so nice
he had to do it twice—he was invited to the Scream Tour as the opening
act for Diggy Simmons and Jacob Latimore at the Tower Theater in
Pennsylvania and the Constitution Hall in Washington, DC; giving
performances worthy of a headliner. He has rocked crowds at
Pennsylvania’s Juneteenth Festival, Duffy’s Hope Celebrity Weekend and
Bob Marley Reggae Festival in Wilmington, DE, Charlie Mack’s Party for
Peace Celebrity Weekend in Philadelphia, the Sweet Auburn Festival in
Atlanta, GA., Brooklyn Rocks for Peace in Brooklyn, NY and performed
alongside Avery Sunshine at the Grand Opera House in Wilmington,DE.
2013 has also brought Zdub opportunities in Atlanta, Georgia where
he performed at 2 Teen Celebrity events, a Super Bowl Teen Event and
Jacob Latimore’s Easter Egg White Day party, which raised money for at
risk youth.  He was selected to be a part of Philly’s Dreams to Reality
TV show which is scheduled to air in early 2014. During the summer he
continued to "Wake and Grind" by being a part of not one but 2 Tours –
The Future Tour and the Clean Music Movement Tour. Team Zdub has grown
into a movement - complete with the Team Zdub dancers, a growing number
of fans flocking to the Zdub Fan Club, and new supporters of Zdub’s music daily.  He also dropped in
4th Mixtape 2014 titled H.B.O. Vol. III…Shades of Me. This creative
masterpiece embodies the essence of a true musical phenomenon and some
industry professionals are taking notice.  A prominent
songwriter/producer recently referred to H.B.O. Vol. III…Shades of Me as

Zdub remained busy in 2014 dropping H.B.O. Vol 3.5 Free bangers which
continued to show his grow as an artist with tracks you can rock out
with to chill and lean back with.  Also during the 2014-2015 School year
Zdub and Summer Valentine kicked off the NO BULLYING allowed Philly
School Tour where the talked to Middle school and elementary school kids
about bullying, Education is Power and Chasing your Dreams.
