Isaiah McKenzie was born and raised in the small city of Greenville, located in South Carolina. He has grown into quite the outstanding artist that fans worldwide have come to know as Zay. His musical influences were magnified by the inspiration of greats like Eminem, Drake, and Lil Wayne, among others. He took this fire for hip hop and combined it with the encouragement and impact of his family and the many experiences that life has brought his way. This gave rise to the talent that has been gaining recognition for his genre blending music and the artform he holds when composing his songs. With his range and diversity in his songs, he is able to create any feel that he wishes. Whether nostalgic, uplifting, motivational, lyrical or even intimate, his is versatile and creative enough to accomplish either. The album is the culmination of Zay’s talent and growth in the music industry. It showcases his diversity along with his wittiness while creating songs that suck the listener into his world. The album isn’t meant for one group of people but was curated to resonate with any that comes into contact with its sound. “Vengeance Without Fear” revolves around hip hop but splices in other genres like dancehall to give a memorable musical experience. The project shows Zay in all his glory, unfiltered with walls let down for the world to indulge. He speaks on a variety of topics that touch the soul, transitioning between not settling for less, valuing the opportunities that await, not letting the outside noise dictate the future, and the dangers of involving the wrong people within your life.
