Press Release: Oso Slick's Blue Collar Hip Hop


Press Release: Oso Slick's Blue Collar Hip Hop

Courtesy Artist PR Music News Wire.

TRACY, CA - 9/25/11

Oso Slick: hesh'n gone hip hop, a MC that raps about skateboarding. This blue collar hip hop artist is always pushing life to the limit. He's an adrenaline junky with soul and flow. Original lyrics over multiple styles of beats: acoustic, rocker, reggae, Spanish, club, and digital. His style and roots come from seven years of experience in a punk band. He has performed at small to medium size venues all over California. Bringing in the crowds of hip hopsters, punk rockers, rastas, and down to earth people, allowing the crowd to let loose and have a great time. His ultimate goal is to stop the hate, spread the love, and to connect with everyone under the sun.

A lot of people have said that he sounds a lot like Andre 3000, which he takes as a compliment. He considers himself to be a moderate skateboarder, but says skateboarding is not about rating yourself. It's about the ciphering of energy between you and your friends. It's like when someone lands a trick you get all excited, bang your board, make some noise and make them feel good about themselves or vice versa. Oso feels the same way about music. The more pumped up the crowd is, the more amped up he is, which only betters the experience for everybody. So to all of you that have not heard Oso Slick, you are guaranteed to like and enjoy at least one of his songs. Oso is ready to take his music to the next level and perform at larger venues. He will be featured in the August issue of Thrasher Magazine. You can check him out at ososlick.com, on Itunes and rhapsody.

Some extra info. Oso Slick made all his own beats, except Warriors. He also books all his shows, and does most of the foot work, making and passing out flyers, and networking on Facebook, Myspace, and Twitter. Slick has been a stage hand and ground rigger for the past 5 years and knows what all goes in to make a show happen.

2011 marks the return of the Compilation like you have never experienced it before, with the birth of The Academy, a bi-coastal merging of the minds that provides an undeniable unity long since forgotten amidst the landscape of popularized feuds, beefs, and unfounded media hypes. "The Academy" was released on 9-13-2011 courtesy of Terminal 3/Penagon/Bonzi Records.

The material is 100% new, the collaborations are out of this world, and the production value makes "The Academy" the new standard in Hip-Hop excellence. Over 55 MC's representing the realms of "Major" and "Independent", "New & Old School, "Legendary" and "Soon to Be" make "The Academy" release a shoe in for fans to feed their need for a superior quality product from a vast makeup of the artists they love and respect in a landscape where subpar albums and scaled back budgets have become the norm.

Executive produced by Kurupt, fans will hear "Academy" appearances from such notable talents as Raekwon, Jadakiss, Kurupt, Pete Rock, Royce Da 5'9", Redman, Styles P, Crooked I, Sean Price, Method Man, Canibus, LA the Darkman, Keith Murray, Planet Asia, Rass Kass, K-Solo, LA The Darkman, Billy Danze (M.O.P.), Pack FM, Pete Rock, Keith Murray, Chino XL and many more all backed by the breakthrough soundscapes of Terminal 3 Productions (who previously oversaw projects from ("Wu-Tang Meets the Indie Culture", "The Four Horsemen" and "The Undergods").

From Junior J.

Our brand-new body of work is being mixed and mastered by DJ Don Cannon, in the meantime here's a brand new track tittled "Good Morning America". We had fun in the process of creating this project alongside with dealing with setbacks and everyday life issues which heavily influenced the sound. Ameer humbly let's you further into his life, loves and mishaps with that being said there is so much more life to live out God willing. Join us and engage in something that when you walk away you know you walked away with some food and dessert for the heart & soul.
