Q.Z. Tha Leader

Location: Portland Metro Area

Q.Z. Tha Leader is harnessing the power of the digital realm by writing and producing all of his own music. The Mississippi native brings his raw lyricism and storytelling to a now-revitalized Portland hip-hop scene. His latest offering, “Green House,” is a menacing tale of lost innocence. The self-produced track weaves together a cloak of visceral truths layered over ethereal pads and trap-style production. For fans of J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Wale and Nas, “Green House” is streaming everywhere now—listen via Spotify or Apple Music.
