OBX (Originated By [X]perience) is an up & coming MC in the hip hop game today. OBX (O-Becks) has a profound and unique skill of storytelling through lyrics that resembles current and past hip-hop narrators such as: Big Pun, Wu-Tang Clan, Joell Ortiz, Common, OutKast and Nas just to name a few. OBX has relinquished the role of the conventional clique rapper who is over commercialized and under skilled for the true aesthetic of hip-hop that enables an artist to connect and narrator life experiences that listeners of hip-hop go through every single day. OBX has an ability to connect with his fans unlike any other artist in today’s hip-hop market. Unlike the commercial artists who are over played on radio stations who rap about circumstances that are only relatable to either really poor individuals growing up in the ghettos or after becoming successful and rapping about becoming wealthy and leaving out the fledgling lower to middle class without anybody able to represent them. OBX raps about issues that everybody experiences day in and day out. While commercial artist are rapping about their rims and financial status, OBX is rapping about his college experience and trying to make ends-meet in a recession ridden America using wittiness and his charisma. While commercial rappers are about consumption, OBX is studying his craft which enables him to connect to the true fan of hip-hop so that he can enjoy their successes and can be with them in their failures.
