Zoey Dollaz, real name – Elvis Millord, is one of the most prominent musicians in Miami. The Haitian-American rapper first gained widespread attention in 2015 with the release of his single “Blow a Check.”
He was born on October 12, 1990, in the USA.
Dollaz was raised in Carrefour, Ouest outside of Port-au-Prince in Haiti.
During an interview, Elvis said:
”I was born in Miami, but I was raised in Haiti for a long time.”
At age 12, at the order of the U.S. government, Millord and his mother moved from Port-Au-Prince, Haiti back to Miami. He explained:
”The US government came down there, and it was like, if you’re American, you gotta go back home.”
Zoey later added:
”You can’t stay here. We’re not leaving you here.”
When asked about how was growing up in Miami, he responded:
”It wasn’t that bad at all. We all had our times when we dealt with street stuff. Beef, fights, shoot-outs, drugs.”
”We always had that stage in our lives being kids coming from the hood. I managed to bypass all of that with music.”
In 2012, he released his first mixtape, named – ”Love, Money, & Bullets.”

”Whether you’re a hustler, a businessman, whether you’re in the gym, working out, whether you’re a girl, everybody wants to feel like they’re financially straight to blow a check.”

”I’m not just repping for me as an American rapper. I’m Haitian. I’m repping for a whole culture.”
”One of my favorite songs is my new single that’s about to release which is titled Anything.”
“Last year being humble, I’m going broke in Gucci/Niggas talkin’ ’bout a rumble, I bring them smoke like loosies.”
