“Q&A With O.A.”
“KP~When did you fall in love with Hip-Hop? OAmsler: The first tape I remember playing over and over was “No Diggity”. Hip-Hop definitely had my full attention since then but I became a full hip-hop head when DMX put out It's Dark and Hell Is Hot. The beats, the rage, the vividness, I feel like that album showed everything that rap could bring to the table when done right. That was also when I realized I had to know and be able to rap the words to every song from my favorite artists, and that's when it became an obsession. ”
"I took out my iPod and scrolled down to my “O” artists. I clicked on the first mixtape by O.Amsler and immediately felt calm about hip hop’s future. I relaxed and let his music drown out my loud sigh of relief."
