Brandon “Lil Bibby” Dickson, founder of Grade A Productions, announced March 31, 2022 that Sam Zelaya “Zzz” has officially signed to the label, Grade A Productions.
After a shoutout from DJ Khaled and a viral post on TikTok, Zzz was invited to join Lil Bibby’s Instagram live after a fan played one of the 18-year-old’s songs for the music executive. Once connected with the aspiring artist, the Grade A founder loved his music and flew Zzz out to LA the next day.
“It’s always great to sign a new artist that is up and coming. Zzz makes music for his generation that speaks to his feelings and when I first listened to his track, I almost cried,” said Lil Bibby. “I’m always looking for artists to sign that are unique and Zzz is perfect for Grade A Productions”
Since landing on the west coast, Zzz has been in the studio with “Lemonade” producer Internet Money and attended several Grammy parties to introduce him to the industry. Zzz has also been added to the Lyrical Lemonade ‘Summer Smash Festival’ lineup. The festival’s headliners include Post Malone, Playboi Carti, Young Thug, Gunna, and more.
