Zane Copeland, Jr. ( July 11, 1982 ), better known as Lil' Zane, is a rapper out of Atlanta, Georgia, although he was born in Yonkers, New York. He is arguably best known for his Young World: The Future, released in 2000. The album's single, "Callin' Me," is widely considered his best. Some criticise Copeland's style for being similar to Tupac Shakur. In 2003, Copeland released The Big Zane Theory. With it, he formally changed his stage name from Lil' Zane to simply Zane.
