Last year we highlighted Miami’s Haitian-American rapper Zoey Dollaz born Elvis Millord, at the time the new rapper was in the process of releasing his newest project “Who Don’t Like Dollaz.” Since then major changes in his budding music career have made the 25-year-old Carrefour Haiti-born lyricist a very hot commodity in the music industry.
Since our last conversation, Zoey started to blow up with “Blow a Check,” the hit single he released last August that was remixed by Diddy and French Montana and included on Puff’s November mixtape MMM. In February, Zoey joined both Ciroc Boys in the “Blow a Check” music video. Following the release of the video, Zoey signed fulfilled a childhood dream by signing to Future’s Freebandz Records, and consequently, to L.A. Reid’s Epic Records, which handles distribution for Future’s imprint.
When I tell you dreams are real man chase them shits yo real shit , from a little boy I put this on my mother I always said this who gotta sign me whenever I make it , I done walked in almost every building sat down with so many CEOs and chairmans and I always had low energy because I know they wasn't gonna be the ones and the day I met @la_reid he signed me instantly and looked at me said " Idk you this my first time meeting you but I know talent and I know a good soul when I see one welcome to epic records " dog I didn't say a word to nobody after that not even my mom knew anything .. Just chase your dreams man because somewhere out there they're real!
So after “Blowing A Check” the last year, Zoey Dollaz is taking his fans based to Haiti by fully embracing his Haitian roots with his new Port-Au-Prince Mixtape scheduled to drop at 5:09pm today ( July 4th, 2016). 509 is Haiti’s area code.
“The new name of my mixtape is Port-Au-Prince. I’m focusing on that more, and the label agrees so it makes sense. I’m not just repping for me as an American rapper. I’m Haitian. I’m repping for a whole culture.” – Zoey
Earlier today Haitian artist Wyclef Jean phoned Zoey and later tweeted and congratulated the artist as the new generation of Haitian artist in hip hop.
