CERO ISMAEL CRAFTS MUSIC THAT SERVES AS A HEALING JOURNEY FOR THE LISTENER.
Cero Ismael, originating from the suburbs of Amsterdam, is an emo rap/alternative R&B storyteller, sharing his candid stories with emotive resonance. Influenced by a blend of Dutch, Indonesian, and Surinamese cultures, he delves into themes of love, fear, loneliness, and mental health, and defies stereotypes by revealing his emotional vulnerability. His unique brand of alternative hip-hop has earned him recognition from Highsnobiety, i-D, Complex, and more. Growing up, music became his focus from an early age, inspired by his musical family and artists like Soulja Boy, Lil B, and Chief Keef, later expanding into R&B, indie, and soul influences.
