Take a trip with us as we talk to Khleo Thomas about music, movies, and more.
Can you talk a little bit about your family background?
My family is everything to me. My parents raised me to be who i am today. Theyve kept me level headed over the years. My litte brothers & sister are what push me to succeed even more at whatever i do.
Which came first, the movie or the music aspirations?
Both around the same time. But movies kicked off 1st.
Many people may recognize you from the beloved movie Holes, was that your first movie role? Did this have a positive effect on your career?
Holes was like my 3rd. But it was my BREAKOUT role. Of course. Till today it has such a following, it has families gathering around the TV to watch it. Ill always be known as ZERO and im cool with that.
You released a mixtape this year. Can you tell us about it?
Yeah The Next Episode mixtape was just jam packed with all type of music that i wanted to exhibit. It was a full year since i released my very first mixtape so i wanted to show the growth lyrically. It still gets great responses. Its some classic songs on that mixtape.
Someone who you have collaborated with many times in music and even in films is the artist Bow Wow. How was that experience?
Bow is like my big brother for real. We’ve been on tours, shot movies, played video games, vacationed, recorded songs. We’ve done it all and thats a friendship within this industry that ive made that will never get faulted. thats always gonna be big bro.
Who were your inspirations growing up?
Will Smith. Michael Jackson, Snoop Dogg, DJ Quik.
You will be in the upcoming film, Boogie Town. Can you tell us a little about the film?
