The Detroit rapper also crafted the artwork for his album cover, showing of his prowess as a painter. ZeLooperZ explained how painting inspires his music in a new interview with Complex.
"Day to day I trap these paintings out and it's been influencing my music so much because that's part of my life," ZeelooperZ said. "The way I eat music inspires my art. When I want to paint my favorite musical genius' or icons they always come out good in black in white."
In another interview with XXL, ZelooperZ discussed his passion for art and how music is actually his second love.
"I am an artist first,” ZelooperZ said. “That’s what I do. I love art. I’ve been painting since I was a kid. Music is kind of my second love. I started drawing as a kid like [in] elementary school. When I got into high school, I started painting. I mostly do everything like art. I got into music by just growing up in a household with all different types of music playing, it kind of stuck with you. We used to freestyle in the kitchen [and during] dinnertime. It was like a musical household and I always liked rhyming.”
