"Passionate Rapper Will Leave You Begging For More"

Your life may seem like a fairytale compared to Ozzie Cox's (Z-SLIM); who brought to the game "Flo-Rida" & "Flo-Ride" the new "FAD" in the music industry. This young rapper states himself as the SCIENTIST of the root word "Flo", he is on the rise, with a bag full of true stories to tell. Born a 80s baby in Rockledge, Florida, Cox comes from 2 powerful Bahamian bloodlines. Z-Slim have plans to become the 1st Bahamian Solo Artist in history. Life for Cox has been more downs than ups; he is one of three children left alone more than he dares to remember. Having to take on the role of parenthood for the sake of his sisters made Cox a stronger person. In 1996 he was ordered to live with his father because of the ongoing drug problems amongst his family. Maybe this was the break that Cox needed to make it through the hard times and the abusive relationships his mother always seemed to get herself into. Though the move wasn't all good it wasn't all bad either, Cox finally got to do something he had always loved, and that was play ball. Playing basketball was a gift Cox was born with and that same gift got him through Monsignor Pace Senior High School in Miami, where he played for Mark Lieberman. It was there that Cox led his team to a 25-10 record and a regional runner-up finish. He won numerous awards over the course of his career, including being named to the Mt. Dora Classic All-Tournament team, the Junior Orange Bowl All-Tournament, Dade County All-Star, and he received an honorable mention All-County defensive back. This same star quality got Cox into Florida Gulf Coast University in Ft. Myers, Florida as quickly as his SAT scores got him out, but it will take a lot more than a test score to put this young soldier out the game. He did not stop there Cox, went on to Broward Community College where he went on to become on the All Freshman Team in the Southern Conference. Cox help lead his team to a remarkable 24-5 record where his team was ranked 19th in the USA. This was the 1st time ever in Broward County history for there Junior College to be ranked nationally as well as winning a Confernece Championship in 30 in addition, participating in the State Juco playoffs in Chipola, Fl for the 1st time in 30 years. Cox will not be defeated; he has now enrolled back at Broward College to continue his education and ambition to go on to the University of Florida then on to the NBA. With encouraging words from mentor Streetball Legend, Pee Wee Kirkland Cox has the will and determination to make any Major Record Label much more powerful, these next chapters in Cox’s life will reveal the pain, trials, and tribulations through his music. The conviction in his voice will keep you so mesmerized that you will be lost for words; all you’ll be able to do is rewind the tracks for more. Cox raps about the pain of losing his two closest cousins, who both died in the Brevard County Jail, he also raps about his plead for a cure for HIV. Z-Slim has opened for numerous of Major Artist and Major Independent Artist, such as Lil Wayne, triple platinum artist Twista, Lil Boosie, Webbie, Plies, Trina, Rick Ross, Trillville, Freeway,Grandaddy Souf, Eightball & MJG, Gucci Mane, Juvenile, Haitian Fresh, Mike Jones, Trick Daddy, Treal, B. Gizzle, T.I. & PSC Clique, J.T. Money, Pastor Troy, DJ Unk, Young Joc, Lil Scrappy, Squad Up, Mannie Fresh, Triple J, Suave Smoove, Papaduck, Jackie O, Archie Eversol, Baby Boy, Bloodraw, Tampa Tony as well as Dirtbag. Like I mentioned in the beginning, this talented young man has a bag full of true stories to tell. As a youthful father determined to give his daughter a better chance at this life, Cox strategy is to become a mentor to less fortunate children and to stress the importance of book knowledge because “reading is fundamental.” Fame is not the reason for the deep rooted lyrics coming from the mind and heart of this dedicated rapper; the real issue is, he would like to find a cure for Cerebral Palsy in which one of his sisters was diagnosed with this disease at birth , he wants to get his oldest sister in rehab he needs to give the world this “Street Ministry.” So remember to keep your eyes and ears open for Mr. Ozzie Cox, who will be known to the rap world as Z-Slim. Listen to him once and I guarantee you’ll be begging for more.BestInterview.net - 24 Hour Hip-Hop


Our debut LP, "Flostronomy" is due out in spring, 2009!



Z-Slim was born Ozzie Cox on March 24th, 1984 to parents of Bahamian descent in Rockledge, Florida. Growing up in a broken home, he found an outlet by spending his youth playing sports and writing rhymes, dreaming of one day picking a different path for himself. By the time
he was 19, he was already selling his own mix tapes and playing shows in his hometown. After getting the attention of his uncle, James Cox, they started Flo-Ridaz Incorporated, a company designed to help promote Z-Slim and he was soon playing shows from Atlanta to Miami, and the Bahamas, opening for artists such as Lil Wayne, T.I., Juvenile, Rick Ross and Yung Joc.

In 2008, after recording 7 mix tapes and playing dozens of shows around the southeast, Z-Slim was ready to take his music to the next level. While
recording at Full Sail University, he met Ridiculous Nick, a seasoned producer working on his degree in Recording Arts, and after a couple months, they
decided to team up and create Z-Slim's first full length LP, a journey through space entitled "Flostronomy".

Soon they were in the studio, crafting a new style of music that sounded like funk, rap, R&B, rock and jazz in outer space behind talented lyrics that promote positivity, peace and triumphant messages with a mellow, soulful lyrical style. After a couple of months in the studio, the album was almost done and it was time to start a band. By now, Nick had started to meet some very talented musicians and soon assembled a 6 piece live band to rival all other
hip-hop groups out there.

Named the Flo Boys, this new band was formed with a mission to conquer Florida with live hip-hop. Made up of Will "Chess Pains" Busby on electric guitar, Jonathan "Sir Faita Flo" Faita on electric bass, Brian "Party Boy" Fowler on drums, George "Tre Tuna" Ammatuna on turntables, and Nick "Flodiculous Nick" on keyboards, the Flo Boys have been hard at work perfecting songs and promoting their new vibe with high hopes for the future.
