:LiL Zane Biography:::
Young and restless, 17-year old microphone phenomenon Lil' Zane has got big plans. Having proven last year with R&B macks 112 that he can take you "Anywhere", the teen rap threat has resurfaced after an intense bidding war and has focused his sighs on Young World; The Future, his hotly anticipated debut album on World Wide Entertainment/Priority.
When people hear my album I want them to say that I basically took them on a ride," says Zane about his first LP. "I show people every aspect of life. I say some bad things that I've done and witnessed some good things that I've done. But the good outweigh the bad. I'm young and a lot of things I talk about on the album are things that older people may experience. But my mom once told me I got an old soul."
Born in a tough section of Yonkers, New York, but raised throughout Atlanta since the age of seven, Lil' Zane grew up on both soul rap. "The first song I ever learned was "Before I Let Go" by Frankie Beverly & Maze, " he recalls. "That was a song I used to dance to and just sing all day when I was younger."
It was about age 10 when Zane, inspired by the kiddie rap of Another Bad Creation (ABC) and Kris Kross, got more serious about his eventual career and started rehearsing with his cousin. A year later, the aspiring talent beat a case of stage fright and began entering local Atlanta talent shows. Kevin Wales, owner of World Wide Entertainment and the man who discovered the immensely successful artists Another Bad Creation, Monica, and 112, attended one such performance. He was immediately blown away by then literally little Zane.
