Zoey Dollaz is representing for his zoes in his latest mixtape, Port-Au-Prince.
The tape, named after the capital of Haiti, aptly begins with the track, “For My People.” It starts off with news clips from the tragic 2010 earthquake in Haiti before Dollaz begins to rap. The 25-year-old raps most of it in kreyol, the native language of Haiti.
Dollaz came onto the scene last year with the explosive track, “Blow a Check.” The song was followed up by the popular Bad Boy remix off of 2015’s MMM. This time around, Dollaz has his own mixtape — and the promotion was pretty tight. It was released at 5:09 p.m. which is also Haiti’s area code on Tuesday (July 4) aka the United States’ Independence Day.
In an interview with Vibe, Dollaz told the world that he’s not just representing for one country.
“I’m not just repping for me as an American rapper,” he said. “I’m Haitian. I’m repping for a whole culture.”
Dollaz, who’s under Future’s label, FreeBandz, dropped the project via LiveMixtapes. Check it out below.
