Entertainer of the Month – OC from NC (June 2016)


OC from NC ….You have to say the whole thing like a Tribe Called Quest. OC will tell you himself he’s The One; The One who is going to convert all the lost souls back to Hip Hop and reintroduce them to the culture. His bar heavy lyrics combined with a soulful beat are undeniable, unmatched, and his live performance is indescribable. OC is driven by the desire to bring recognition to the distinguished voice of North Carolina’s Hip Hop scene and to show the world that the core of Hip Hop is thriving.Born Octavius Dion Taylor on September 27th, 1984, the wordsmith was once the quietest dude in the room, but he expresses that even then he had bars. Upon recapping his first performance at a death metal showcase in a country shed, OC’s words arrange an imaginatively descriptive scene. Having summoned inspiration from great artists like, Black Thought, Nas, Mos Def, & Phonte, its no surprise that he is often known to say “Hip Hop is all I brought.”
