MaZoo
Des Moines
Hip Hop
Performing: Saturday, July 9 at 6:00 pm on Nationwide Stage
MaZoo describes herself as a “feisty, Italian, Midwest motormouth” and “that wild, crazy, cool, fly chick you wanna keep in rotation.” These are absolutely true, but it barely scratches the surface of of who MaZoo is. As an artist, she is unflinchingly confident. She packs a mean streak as an MC, but it isn’t just diss rhymes. Her confidence is underscored by real vulnerability and a peek behind the curtain of a woman whose life has forged her like steel. They are big, fast, meaningful rhymes from a strong woman who also knows how to perform.

MaZoo has collaborated with a litany of Midwest MCs like D. Carlone, Will Keeps, Scoobee Oh Boy, Juliano and more. Her video for “Stop” has been featured on sites like VYTO.com, Beat 100 and has been viewed several thousand times since its debut. Her talent has landed her on stages with acts like Bone Thugs N Harmony and on this year’s 515 Alive Festival featuring Machine Gun Kelly, ASAP Ferg and a ton of hip-hop, electronic and dance artists. At 80/35, let MaZoo add some fire to your warm summer day.
