Zayn - Dazed And Diffused LP [Standup Recordz]Zayn Grieve, known as Lisp was born in South Africa in 1992. Moved to live in Scotland with his Family at around the age of five. He was brought up in Glasgow and grew up in most areas as he moved about a lot, but would consider himself bred in Pollockshaw / Shawbridge.

When asked about his musical influences he stated, "I've always been surrounded by hip hop music, my father was a DJ and uncles and aunts have always been involved in music of some sort so its always been in the blood. First started writing lyrics when I was about 12 or 13 and was first exposed to rap / hip hop at first hand by my cousin Tuffey who was in a rap group called 4D, so from then on I just wanted to learn and do as much as I could."

He continued, "I like all types of music, as long as its true, soulful and can teach the listener so thats what I try to accomplish when I'm making my music aswell as the fact that its really a part of me."

He finished off by saying, "Its everything that makes me who I am as to say no matter how dry that sounds. So I hope ya'l enjoy whats here and whats to come."

Zayn's debut release from Standup Recordz entitled 'Dazed And Diffused' is available now. This is an introduction to an artist that has been making alot of noise in the North lately, and I promise you will not be let down. With all around progressive lyrics and that Boom Bap feeling Zayn is sure not to dissapoint. The mixtape also features an array of talent on the MC circuit including: Teknique, Craft, Louie, Leisone, Aptitude, Vova, OldeBoy, Ghost67, Suus, Konchis, Kayce One and Nity Gritz.
