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.
