Zacariah 100 drops his latest album ‘Dallas Maverick’. Inspired by his hometown Bball team Dallas Mavericks, Zacariah 100’s new album is a team effort of complete fire. We catch up with him to find out more.
What was it like growing up in Dallas and how did this influence the music you make?
Dallas plays a big role in the music I make. This city is full of talent and a lot of big things happen here. Personal experiences in the city plus friends making music and making connections was the light of the beginning of my career.
What was your first experience of Hip-Hop?
When I was young in Balch Springs Texas I had friends who introduced me to hip hop.
Your latest album is named after Basketball team ‘Dallas Mavericks’ – Tell us about how they have inspired this album?
Actually, a lot of factors inspired this album. I love Dallas sports and the Dallas Mavericks have been on fire. About a year and a half ago I got the melody from my producer and knew it was going to be a hit for the team as it is a basketball kind of feel so i waited for the right moment to release it. I titled the album Dallas Maverick not because of the team and having a anthem for them but because the statement is true which is where me and the team are just like each other because we are mavericks. A maverick is someone who stands out alone from the crowd and is a leader.
The opening track was written as an anthem for the stadium, how did this inspire you? What similarities do you find between Hip-Hop and Basketball?
Yes, I wanted to make the song an all-around song that is great for all occasions especially in the stadium! They are alike because its entertainment. Sometimes you win sometimes you lose but you keep your head up and keep moving towards the next opportunity or play. The goal at the end of the day is to win.
Tell us about the other tracks on the album? Are there any that are personal favorites of yours?
Yes “Watch Me Tik Tok” made for all types of videos on the Tik Tok platform. Also Call On God is a personal favorite and i even have a video coming soon.
What was it like performing at the same show as Erykah Badu, and how did that come about?
It was amazing and her soul is so sweet, and her heart is strong. A long-time home event in Dallas Texas called the Harambee festival is where it happened which is a great celebration that happen good meaning. I was invited to come perform there and i am very thankful.
Tell us about a time when Hip-Hop saved your life?
For me Hip Hop is therapy. Happy, sad, or however your day is going it can get you through it especially when a song hit a point of time you are going through.
What do you want listeners to take away from your music?
Positivity and happiness. A brighter day.
