Michael Anthony Zaragoza (born December 14, 1987), also known by his stage name MZ, was born in San Diego, California. Son of a Marine, Michael moved around a lot as a child. Living in Lexington, Virginia and Lubbock, Texas for much of his young childhood, Michael came into his first contact with Rap and Hip-hop. Having a lot of older cousins who were gang-affiliates, others who were teenagers during the time when MTV actually played music videos, Michael got a huge dose of Bone-thugs n Harmony, Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Too Short, and the one who first captured his young imagination, Eazy-E. His lyrical content and his distinct tone and presence on any song drew Michael to mimic his style. Through out my music journey, I always wanted someone and some message I could relate to. When Roy and the team expressed interest in me joining, not only was it answered prayer, it's the accountability I need to grow, by being sharpened, to stay humble, by seeing how much better I can be in all phases of my music, and promotionally, i'm going to use my gifts and uniqueness to contribute to this group, all for the sake of the Kingdom and lost souls around the world! If my position ever changes from winning souls for Christ with music and outreach, I pray a brother or sister warn me and rebuke me. I pray God smite me dead right there. All I have, and all that I am is because of God's fingerprints in my young life, the influence I had from artists like Tech N9ne and Eminem, the salvation I received from Christ, the people that helped in encouraging me to continue in music, and my wife who has always been my biggest fan. Blessings!!!
