Gorilla Zoe - Biography
|last update : 26-01-2008 18:04|
|Alonzo Mathis, better known by his stage name Gorilla Zoe, is an American hip hop artist from Atlanta, Georgia. A member of the Bad Boy Records group Boyz n da Hood, in which he replaced Young Jeezy, Mathis first saw success backing up Young Joc on songs including Coffee Shop and Bottle Poppin', which charted under several Billboard categories. His first solo album, Welcome to the Zoo, was released in October of 2007, which peaked at #18 on the Billboard Top 200, #3 on Top Rap Albums, and #8 on Top R&B Albums.
Gorilla Zoe is an Atlanta rapper in the mold of Young Jeezy, whom he replaced in the Bad Boy group Boyz N da Hood. Both Atlantans have raspy voices, slow flows, simple rhymes, and a shameless obsession with the illegal drug trade, in particular cocaine. Gorilla Zoe's first taste of commercial success came with "Coffee Shop," a 2007 hit by Bad Boy labelmate Yung Joc. Gorilla Zoe's debut single as a solo artist, "Hood Nigga," followed shortly thereafter, along with his debut album, Welcome to the Zoo. His first album as Jeezy's replacement in Boyz N da Hood, Back Up N da Chevy, was released next, also in 2007. The album spawned a series of singles, including "Everybody Know Me" and "We Ready." ~ Jason Birchmeier, All Music Guide
