Z-Man is a madcap and zany rapper who's been rolling with the Hieroglyphics, a deeply respected and well known Bay Area hip hop family. His personal linguistics can be wildly entertaining and comical. He uses massive amounts of slang, to the point that his record label actually posts definitions of his terms in list form on their website. He is an avid performer, always onstage. Sonically, Z-Man's tracks are often layered in sound effects and evoke both comic book settings and detailed painterly terrain. Z-Man is also an accomplished muralist and artist, proudly making his own artwork for his posters, 12" singles and CDs.
