We had the good fortune of connecting with Connect Zero and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Connect Zero, can you share the most important lesson you’ve learned over the course of your career?
The most important lesson I was taught during my career is “you can’t pick your hit song”, and what that means to me is, you can’t hand pick what will and will not relate to the masses. Your fans and support system will ultimately gravitate to what makes them feel more secure, my biggest song as of right now is a song I released Sumer 2015 called “Mobile Pharmacy” and I don’t even like that song, I made that song in 20 minutes while visiting family in Portland Oregon, basically the thought process for the creation of that went like this; “drug music is popular right now, Future is coming off his 3-peat album series with songs like “Codeine Crazy” & “I Serve The Base” Makonnen had “Wrist” & “I Don’t Sell Molly No More” so I thought to myself, all of this music coming out is extremely drug induced, I wonder if I can make something like that…” and I did, thus Mobile Pharmacy was born.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
honestly, I got this far from observing people, watching others careers and just trying to emulate curtain things while still keening it unique to me. I also got this far because I ask questions and I listen, I take time out and study peoples habits and mannerisms.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
oh man, of course I have to take my friends to the best spots in the city, so look, first we start the day off getting breakfast at The original Pancake house off Cheshire Bridge, after that, we have to shop, but i’m not bring to go to any malls or anything like that, so we have to hit places like Good Times ATL off Elizabeth Street, after that we would go take pictures or shoot a music video in Atlantic station. Boom, so lunch time, gotta go to Jinya Ramen Bar on Roswell, gotta ride the sky view, ride bikes around Piedmont park, that’ll knock out a couple more hours, I guess we have to eat one more time, easily stopping by Roasters on Lenox road, thence go home get dressed and we’re going to Platinum Gentlemen’s club Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
When it comes to my shout out section, there are many people who have impacted my career and showed me how hard I really need to work, a huge example of this is my father, he attempted to stop me from making music as a child to see how bad I really wanted it. *Aidid Byer & James Brannon are also another super important pieces to the puzzle, anytime I feel like giving up or quitting, they always tell me why I need to keep going. another person I want to thank is Jordan Huez, Jordan was really the first person who I saw with some kind of status that consistently gave me feedback and told me what I should and shouldn’t work on with my music, now I have a small support group that helps me with that, including people like “FckTre”, Mustapha Lebeau, and Womatic Tracks. I easily have to thank Damont Nelson for helping me out with getting placed on tour dates, I have to thank Darryl Crews for putting me on my First Apple Music editorial playlist, Legendary Jerry Clark for giving me guidance and helping me excel. and lastly I really need to thank Dior Worthy for sitting me down and teaching me how to run my brand.
