Chauncey Williams, a.k.a. “Zaybo” was born and raised in the Queens borough of New York City. At the tender age of 6, he and his family moved south to Decatur, Georgia, where he spent most of his upbringing. Now 21, Zaybo resides on the south side of Atlanta.
Although he began writing music at the age of 14, he didn’t have the courage to record those tracks until he was 16 and then finally decided that music was his true passion at about 18 when dreams of the NFL began to seem less realistic. Initially using music as an outlet to express himself and treating it as a hobby, Zaybo learned quickly that music was a way to communicate a portrait to his listeners, painting them a picture of his dream reality filled with sex, drugs and money. Listening to his lyrics you can sense his yearning for a life of luxury and him speaking lavish living into existence. A smooth balance of melodies, unique vocal versatility and meaningful lyrics make up a Zaybo track. Proclaiming that he has created his own lane when it comes to genres, truly believing that his sound cannot be placed in a box.
Naming greats such as Andre 3000, Drake and Young Thug as rap influences, he also draws a lot of influence from early 2000s hip hop and iconic artists such as Lil Wayne.
Releasing 3 projects since 2016, 1 EP, 1 mixtape and an album, in true perfectionist fashion, Zaybo removed them from all platforms and is now in the process of recording an entirely new album, as well as mixing, mastering and tweaking his past projects as he prepares to re-release them in the near future.
Seeing himself as a role model to the youth as a young, ambitious, creative, intelligent but mysterious soul that has tons to talk about and share with his fans, but he is going to do it his way and on his terms. Giving them an example that even your plan B can become the plan A if you truly do it with passion.
