" 1000"

Hailing from Austin by way of West Los Angeles, Cali Zack brings a laid back confidence to the mic. His melodic hooks and clean flow make him easily accessible as an MC. His grimy southern inspired keyboard production is warm and familiar –comparable to Mannie Fresh in his Cash Money heyday. Zack has obviously drawn inspiration from all corners of the hip hop world. He makes the kind of music that we all like to hear.

Since 2002 when Cali arrived in the Lone Star State he has assembled quite a catalogue. In 2003 his debut album "The Dank" was met with impressive reviews. Following that Cali released a hometown compilation called "Cali Zack presents The Clean South", with many of Austin's best emcees and producers in tow. But know one was ready for his partnership with N/A Productions, a little known at the time, but well respected producer and engineer. This upgrade in beats, quality, and overall professionalism elevated Zack to a new level where he thrived, touring with artists such as KRS-One, B-Real of Cypress Hill, Too $hort, Talib Kweli, Method Man, Redman and Ghostface Killah. Cali Zack's intense live show, universal appeal, and respect for the game make him an obvious favorite to break out and make some real noise in the future.
