NOSEY NEIGHBORS Â FT JADA KISS
New Jersey native O Coop discovered he pos- sessed a musical talent at the age of 7, when he began rhyming. Growing up with an inquisi- tive mind, he faced the challenges the streets of Newark had to offer. O Coop learned the harsh real- ity of life and its struggles at a young age. Embracing his gift of expression, O Coop penned his experiences into his rhymes, creating music that was authentic and relat- able. His music was heartfelt and would become a por- tal used to uplift, motivate, and enlighten his community. Although several musical genres have influenced his passion as an artist, O Coop attributes his close friends and mentors Shakim (CEO of Flavor Unit) and Kay-G (Naughty By Nature) for educating him on the business aspect of the music industry. In 2000 when the first studio was built, Ghost City Ent was established. O Coop spent the next few years recording and perfecting his craft, and in 2005 he released his debut LP â€œWhy Meâ€ which gained him recognition in the streets and the indus- try alike. With a witty, charismatic presence O Coop went on to sell over 40,000 units from the trunk of his car. Over the next few years O Coop released over 20 mix-tapes and began performing in ma- jor arenas with some of the biggest names in Hip- Hop. O Coop has shared the stage with Lil Wayne, Jadakiss, Fat Joe, Jaheim, and RL to name a few.
â€œO COOP HAS A WORK ETHIC THAT IS UNDENIABLE AND A DRIVE THAT IS UNSTOPPA- BLE. HE STANDS OUT AMONG THE REST. â€œ O Coopâ€™s single â€œCanâ€™t Wear Skinny Jeansâ€ was an instant hit, being added in rotation on Hot 97, Streets 96, and in clubs spanning the entire east coast. As momentum continues to run high, O Coop is ex- pected to drop another mixtape â€œOnly God Could Judge My Gangstaâ€ on May 19th hosted by DJ Scoobdoo, under his infamous Street Religion series. O Coop has a work ethic that is undeniable and a drive that is unstoppable. He stands out among the rest. More than an artist and performer, he is a young, black entrepreneur. Priding himself on consistency and growth, music lovers can expect dynamic music for years to come from O Coop! â€œI am more than just an artist and a performer. I am a mogul. I represent an engine of young black en- trepreneurs that understand struggle and treat ev- ery chance as an opportunity. Our Music is Relative. We care about the community; being entrenched in that struggle has allowed us to relate, uplift and shed light on several issues. Whether it is our re- lationship with children or Gangsters, they are all enlightened by the movement, WE GOING!!!
