    LABL Podcast - #68 "The Zo Episode"

    LABL Podcast - #68 "The Zo Episode"

    Nametag taps in with his second oldest brother Zo for episode 68. For those of you who are familiar, Nametag's family has a fairly rich history involving music business/entertainment. 'Zo shares his background of a brief run as a Rapper (known as "Caeto") in a group with their older brother Black Bethoven and friends, as well as why he decided to step away from being a performing artist. Zo gets more transparent with discussing his dealings with Psoriasis and why he leans more into being an advocate for others dealing with the same. He also gives a very diverse take on what roster of Emcees and Producers he'd choose if he were to run a record label.

Love this show

My Man Nametg host a great show . He has great guest and very imformative and insightful .

SFC fandom ,

Great Concept!

First of all, I love music and I can tell that they do too. They have a passion for it and it comes out in each episode. Getting the perspective of an artist and producer/DJ that are both passionate about their craft is comforting since commercial hip hop nowadays is so manufactered.
