ZULO is the EP by South African artist and music  producer Lil Trix. Fresh off making one of HYPE Magazine's freshman for 2017, Trix tackles personal themes such as his frustrations with his day job, college and career, and everything he has thus learned since parting ways with Blayze Entertainment in 2013. Trix describes the project as his "self-titled entry" as the title combines the first two letters of his full name and surname. The EP's artwork depicts Trix's recurring bunny mascot figuratively struggling with the realistic pet bunny serving as a representation of Trix's real-life conditions due to his desire to fill his career's plate with the little that he can, that to many may seem like nothing. Trix's emptiness in his retail day job is symbolized as the cardboard box as the job's required stocktaking. The 10-track EP is solely produced by Trix and features notable guest appearances from fellow HYPE freshman J.S.K XXVI and BYLWANSTA, as well as award-winning rapper Solo. The EP includes the lead single "Fun", released one week ahead of the EP.
