My name is Daniel “Little Zaint” Zeino and I’m a rapper, songwriter and producer from Stockholm/Sweden and have been doing music since 2006. With an influence from Hip Hop, RnB/Soul and Middle Eastern music, where I’ve been able to create my own sound after working several years.
I was born in a Syrian family in 1985 December 2, with a disability called “congenital muscular dystrophy (CMD)” but that has never stopped me from pursuing my passion for music, song writing and poetry. Since the age of 8, I started writing poems and that later evolved me to take it to the next level where I developed the interest of writing lyrics. In the beginning of my career I also learned to play a Middle Eastern drum called “Darbuka” which I sometimes use in my own productions.
From the early age in my life, I’ve always had a dream to have my own record label and with that vision in November 1 2016 I launched my own production company called LZ Productions from which I released my debut single and 4 other songs. I’ve also had the honor of working with various producers and artists such as Jamay “T&T” Dennis, Bamma B, Jacob Lundin, Savvas Kontzolokis, Loidimo, Alicia Bocio and Mack Beats.
My philosophy in life is that my limits don´t define what I’m capable of.
