LISTEN | Zach Zoya Is A Montreal Newcomer Who's About To Shake Things Up
Zach Zoya is a 19 y/o Canadian hip-hop artist from Montreal.
When you thought you knew all the underground artists around the small island of the Montreal, here comes another one to swoop the masses. He recently released his first mixtape titled ZACH ZOYA 1.0 which has made us do a double-take.
The level of quality in both the production and lyrical delivery is just astounding for someone who's just appearing on the musical scene. We deem his first mixtape, with 5-tracks under his belt, to be one of the most exciting discovery releases this spring.
We hit him up to ask him a couple of questions, just to get to know him a bit better. Scroll through the questions below and click play on his mixtape after the jump.

What are some of the things that Montreal has inspired you to make music?
Montreal is a big cultural melting pot. It regroups people of all nationalities, speaking different languages and giving me different perspectives on my artform. My flow and general vibe is thus influenced by all types of subcultures from the people I come in contact with.
