Emcee OG OLA Is A Name To Remember Coined The Next Hot Rapper Out Of N Carolina Drops Hot Single "Designer"
Posted By: LaMarr Blackmon on August 14, 2019


As the Hip Hop Industry continually grows, the talent needed expands far more than from

the beats and bars it started from. Successful recording artists now have to capture an

audience,entice new fans, and entertain the Industry all while writing, recording, and

performing. OG OLA was built for the new growth that Hip Hop has built over the decades

and it shows on every stage he takes a step on. From the beginning, OG Ola has always

knew that he was talented. There wasn’t a person he couldn’t make smile and he always

had a way with words. Growing up he often hung with the

older guys in the neighborhood, soaking in the knowledge and advice they gave him,

growing up in a small town outside of Raleigh called Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina. Which

is how he got his name. It comes from the “Lil OG” title they used to call him and from a

cousin who jokingly gave him the Ola part that ended up sticking with him up until today.

Now, it’s a name you can’t forget, once your hear his music and meet the man behind the

music. “I get a lot of positive feedback everywhere I go. Project Pat calls me the ‘gas man’

because I keep some fire music and have good ideas for music and I even had Colonel Loud

tell me OG OLA was gonna be the next one out of Carolina…”

OG OLA is raw and uncut and gives the fans exactly what they want. As always, he has

been working non stop on his music and perfecting his craft. Currently, he is promoting his

two fan-favorite singles, “Adios” and “Designer”, available on all streaming platforms. He

has recently finished up a full project alongside ASCAP Honoree Hip Hop Artist, Colonel

Loud, called “Box Brothers: Read Between the Box” and also preparing for a solo project

titled, “Box Talk”. Fans will soon be able to have access to a new mixtape called “Digital

Trappin 2”, with appearances by Chris Millz. As you can probably tell, his work ethics will

speak highly for him. Inspired by Southern legends like Master P, trap south artist Gucci

Mane, the lyrical and entertaining Trick Daddy, and even West Coast legends Tupac Shakur

and Snoop Dogg, OG OLA gives his audience clarification, as he likes to call it. Ola gives

authentic reality rap from his point of view combined with great production that makes his

fans really feel like they are in his shoes. He has a very solid management team which has

got him on tour with Colonel Loud, Project Pat, and shows with idols such as Gucci Man, Lil

Boosie, and even Future. Once at a show in Charlotte NC, Lil Boosie was so impressed that

he went live to showcase to his fans what he was experiencing with OG OLA. He’s an

artist you have to see perform live. He’s an artist that was meant for the path he is on.
