Bio: Born in 1992; raised in San Francisco, California. Started rapping in high school at the age of 15. Fan of the musical styles of jazz, hip hop, rock, folk, R&B, electronica and plunderphonics. Founder of Inner Haven Music circa 2012. Musical influences include: The Pharcyde, Kanye West, NAS, OutKast, 2Pac, Wu-Tang Clan, Kendrick Lamar, Lupe Fiasco, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Radiohead, Frank Ocean, Daft Punk, Nujabes & Yoko Kanno.
Longer Bio: A few of his biggest musical influences range from Erykah Badu followed by artists such as Andre 3000, Jay Z, 2 Chainz, and Lil Wayne, all the way down to Mos Def, Missy Elliot, A Tribe Called Quest, and so on (ironically all mainstream artists but it’s okay). Zair has a musical style that he’d describe as substance filled with alliteration, bounce, and a play on words full on double/triple entendres that are easy to miss if you’re not careful!
Currently 22 years wise, Zair Williams started actively recording music in the 6th grade around the ages of 12-13 and got serious with it when he dropped his track “Chill Hype” during his Junior year of high school at the age of 16. He is now focused and naturally coming into story-telling so that all of his bars and verses correlate rather than spitting random bars like many rappers and consumers like to involve themselves in today.
