“They call me the richest rapper in South Carolina, cause that’s just what I am. I been calling myself that for two years now and ain’t nobody challenge it yet.”– Blacc Zacc
Blacc Zacc is one of the most unlikely rap stars. But best believe he is every bit of a future headlining act.
Zacc is a South Carolina native who once had hoop dreams as he shares exclusively on this episode of Up in the Source, but love from music that developed early in his life eventually became his career.
“I always had a love for music. When I was young, the first song I wrote was for my momma,” Zacc shared. “I was real young and my step daddy had a studio at my apartment. I played around in it a little bit but once I graduated from high school I took it serious. It went from my neighborhood to people liking me in my city, to people all over.”
Additionally to the music, he wanted to be a businessman and give back to his community.
“What inspired me to be a businessman coming out of my neighborhood was [the fact] that no one ever did that before,” Blacc Zacc tells us.
The creator of Carolina Narco creator is a part of the charge to push Southern Hip-Hop forward with skyrocketing talent like Moneybagg Yo and Da Baby. He holds no punches as he details how closely the streets, drug culture, and a relentless grind has shaped how he approaches being a boss and becoming the “richest man in South Carolina.”

He stresses the grind. And while it seems like overnight, he breaks down how he had to work and learn for ten years in order to lay the foundation for such a successful career.
“I know everybody is talking the independent stuff but at heart every rapper want to get signed,” Zacc shared. “Whether it’s this amount of money, or whatever, if the situation is right you want to be signed. That’s when it clicked for me.”
With a titan like Interscope behind him, in partnership with South Coast Music Group, since September of 2019, the time is definitely now for Zacc.
His debut album features a blend of signature trap flare and elements of Latin music culture, setting a score for intense street stories. The album enlists Young Kio, OG Parker, Romaro and more for the production. Features include Yo Gotti and Stunna 4 Vegas among others. You can also catch him on the upcoming tour with Moneybagg Yo and 42 Dugg.
