Born in Madrid, Spain and raised on the border of South Texas (Brownsville), Carlos Servando Cavazos, or as most know as Carlton Zeus aka KillSwitchZeus, is a Mexican-American hip hop artist whose debut EP Nine Lives Three Wishes has scored him a top spot among hip hop independents.
Zeus is revered for his reflections of odd living; raised among peers pushing everything from 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 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
