Throughout the days of adolescence in high school OSVN practiced his skills during cafeteria freestyles…
“What inspired me to become an artist was my love for Hip Hop and its’ competitive nature. While attending high school there were always freestyle sessions during lunch. I went home one day and challenged a couple of my family members to see which one of us could come up with the best rhyme”, says OSVN.
In the next five years the seasoned artist has plans to dominate the industry and become a phantom menace with lyrical content. Some of his biggest inspirations consistent of artists such as: Kool G Rap, Rakim, KRS One, Nas, The WU-Tang Clan, 50 Cent, Roc Marciano, J Prince, and ATCQ to name a few.
In the nearby future, OSVN would like to focus on anti-bullying campaigns for youth awareness. Inequality in impoverished neighborhoods is one contributing factor that can lead to low-self-esteem within school children.
“Low self-esteem is a thinking disorder in which an individual views him/herself as inadequate, unlovable, and/or incompetent. Once formed, this negative view permeates every thought, producing faulty assumptions and ongoing self-defeating behavior”, according to Do Something.
