As Founder/CEO of Dirty Money Entertainmet (DME), Blacc Zacc is an entrepreneur on the rise, with plans to make his label a household name. Born Zachary Chapman in Columbia, South Carolina, Blacc Zacc grew up in Columbia Gardens where he began rapping at the age of 13. “I was inspired to be successful in life by my older brother Tony,” he remembers. “I looked up to my big brother’s lifestyle as a child.”
He was also influenced by music industry moguls like Grand Hustle founder T.I., Maybach Music boss Rick Ross, and internationally renowned powerhouse P. Diddy – who all built their success from the ground up.
Musically, Blacc Zacc’s sound is rooted in the dirty south, mixing heavy-hitting beats with lyrical street tales. “I have my own sound and story,” he says, “and I’m speaking from life experiences.” Like many accomplished southern rap artists before him, Blacc Zacc has grown his fanbase independently via grassroots campaigns in his hometown and surrounding areas, later expanding across the region.
In 2010, Blacc released his first solo mixtape entitled “1st Round Draft Pick,” followed up by “Menace II Society” with DJ Swamp Izzo in 2011. His momentum didn’t slow down and in 2012 Blacc Zacc created two tapes with assistance from DJ 864: “Hottest in da City” and “Hottest in da City 2.” 2013’s “Errythang Dirty,” hosted by Lil Keem, was featured on Livemixtapes and to date has gained 20,000 views.
Blacc Zacc has worked with producers like Zaytoven, Shawty Fresh, P Porter, Swagg Tracks and more, and recently collaborated with PeeWee longway on the buzz track “Clientele.” The song appeared on his latest release “Errythang Dirty 2” hosted by DJ Scream and DJ Lil Keem.
Presently, Blacc Zacc is preparing his debut album titled “Determined to Make It” – the title signifying his ultimate goal. “When I make it I want my whole team to eat just like me,” he promises. “I’m going to keep pushing until they see the top.”
