About Zain a.k.a Jinx
Born in the lands of Pakistan, Zain Amer grew up near the border of Pakistan and Afghanistan in a little city called Peshawar.At the age of 5 he had already started showing his knack for wanting the spot light and started preforming for school shows. At the age of 9, however, his parents had to face unemployment and decided that it'd be best to move to U.S.A, "the land of opportunities".There Zain was introduced to rap/hiphop and r&b. Now residing in Dallas, Texas and listening to 97.9 the beat, Zain knew what he wanted to do.With a wide array of talents since his early childhood, Zain began to play around with words in hopes of becoming a well respected mc. However, soon enough, Zain's family was faced with another dilemma after the tragedies of 9/11. With the south Asian community under massive criticism, their family decided to move to Mississauga, ON, where 5 years later, Zain is beginning to put his skills on the mic and letting the world hear his voice.Now at the age of 19 and a wide array of knowledge, he begins his journey as a mc, a r&b singer and most of all, as a musician.With influences such as Eminem, Talib Kweli, Mos Def, Kanye West, Trey Songz, Usher, Michael Jackson and many more, Zain hopes to enter "the game" with a new style and become a part of the list of names as someone else's influence.
