"I don't care what he said.. I ain't never heard of em"
Country Music Singer/Songwriter



Zeus is revered for his reflections of odd living; raised among fellow pelados pushing everything from raspas to Jesus to spare food stamps to anything you can fit into a northbound commute.


In his music he travels through time - past, present, and future; delivering moments of leisure, passion, and clarity - attributed to a four year intermission of US active duty military service (2004-2008), life, death, love, and everything in between.



"Mexican, Hispanic, Latino, Brown..  whatever you need to label it as….I grew up poor & ambitious.. and in my travels of everything cliche I stumbled into a lifestyle that main stream hip hop never told me about. I want to tell that story." - Zeus




Currently, Zeus is working on follow up album KillSwitchZeus with platinum producers Steveo Valdez and Ace 1 scheduled for release in early 2016 with a live tour, music videos, and more merchandise to follow. Stay tuned.
