About Number 1 Playaz:

If you’re ever in Gary, Indiana and just so happen to come by Taney and 15th, stop by and ask for a guy named Rocky. You’ll find him in a Chicago Bulls hat and he’ll put you on some of the hottest mixtapes out now. No kidding! In his bag, look thoroughly for this name, Number 1 Playaz. Yeah…you may not have heard of them, but then again have you ever really heard of Gary, Indiana? The often slept on, but recognized by those that know, G.I. is the birthplace of the Jackson 5. It’s a landmark under the unlikeliest of circumstances and home of brothers Playo (Jerry Hayom, Jr.) and O-Dogg (Orlando Haymon) and friend T-Turner (Antonio Turner). Just like the old steel mills that used to hum during the summer months on Cline Street and helped to earn the city one of its many nicknames like The Steel City, Number 1 Playaz are poised to earn a few honors of their own.

Each member brings a unique lyrical essence to the group. Playo’s words flow indefinitely like Sonic the Hedgehog on a downhill sprint. T-Turner offers a smooth, fall off the bone, style capable of spontaneous eruption. Finally, O-Dogg brings the revolutionary style of a message rapper who can alternate his lyrics from explicitly gangster, to cavelier for the ladies. Continuing “I feel like my music will last forever because of the truth behind my music. I feel like a person can listen to my music and be like, “damn that’s me.”

CMG's @ZedZilla1 Announces Rent's Due 2 and Road to Riches DVD

From Dove @ Tygereye:

CMG's Zed Zilla Announces Rent's Due 2 and Road to Riches DVD, Coming in July

Memphis, TN -- June 2012 -- With the national CMG Road to Riches Tour and dozens of individual sold-out show dates under his belt, Zed Zilla has had a remarkable year thus far.
On July 19, 2012, the Memphis lyricist will release his Rent's Due 2 project hosted by Atlanta's DJ Scream via Yo Gotti's CMG imprint, and will set off on yet another promotional tour for the Summer.
Gearing up for the release of Rent's Due 2, Zed Zilla worked with a few noteworthy artists like Gucci Mane, Don Trip, Alley Boy, Trouble, and of course, Yo Gotti.
Masterful beats were contributed from a number of talented producers, including Drumma Drama (Yo Gotti's "I Got That Sack"), Montana Trax (8Ball & MJG), and in-house production team Quantum Sounds, responsible for Zed Zilla's breakout hit "Fire That Chick" featuring Yo Gotti. Zed Zilla will unveil the final tracklist soon.
After debuting his Rent's Due mixtape in October 2011, which was hosted by Florida's Bigga Rankin, Zed Zilla set off on a two-part promotional tour, followed by a six-week run on Yo Gotti's successful Road to Riches Tour. Through the process, he documented his life both on stage and behind the scenes, and created the Road to Riches DVD to present alongside the Rent's Due 2 project.
The Road to Riches DVD spotlights Zed Zilla's work and personal life, including community outreach and surprise visits to high schools throughout the South. CMG will release the DVD online in four parts in July, and Zilla assures that fans will relate to his hard work even more with the documentary.
"People will see where I come from, and see that even though I'm on the road and gone a lot, I still get major love from my hood," explains Zed Zilla. "Everyone will see that this Rent's Due is a movement. There are a lot of people who heard but haven't seen, so this DVD should give them that visual into the life of The South Memphis Landlord."

In addition to the online release of the DVD, Zilla is stepping up his visuals with three new videos from Rent's Due 2 - "Showtime", "HataVision" and "Secrets".
"I picked those songs for the first videos from Rent's Due 2 because of the energy and message they send to my listeners," says Zed Zilla. "'Showtime', produced by Beats R' Us, is club/street cut, which leads you into one of the more laid back tracks, 'HataVision'. This song has no chorus, just straight bars to show my lyricism. 'Secrets' is a street/club record produced by C-Money on the Beat, and it features my homeboy Don Trip. I feel like each song comes together to make the cd complete."
The young rapper is confident that fans will be able to grasp even more of his sound and style with the sophomore CMG street album.
"I like to keep it original," Zed Zilla asserts. "I exercise mixtape-style on industry instrumentals sometimes, but I like to be the creator of my own music. I know that we'll be finishing up the second half of this year with good music that Hip Hop fans can appreciate."
