Musician/Composer ZYG 808 Delves into the History of Hip Hop

It’s not every day we have the opportunity to talk with a high school student who is a talented musician, recording artist, and has two Grammy nominations under his belt. Morgan Peters the 2nd, aka ZYG 808, is a senior at Mashpee High School. He’s been playing music for as long as he remembers, plus composing and producing his work. We talk with him about linking history with his present day experiences of a young musician of color. And of course we hear some of his music!

Here's a link for the Live Facebook premier of PIONEERS February 16th at 7:30pm
