I'm an artist. A TRUE Artist. I make music because I have to. There's so much creativity inside of me that has to get out, or I will literally go insane. I was told by a shaman "artists are different" we think differently, we do things differently, we see the world differently.
A lot of things I see inspire me in different ways. I'm always thinking of new ideas for songs, movie ideas, beat ideas, pictures and words creating art. I connect with a lot of other artists, painters, REAL emcees who LOVE there music, who get lost in the music when they close their eyes. People who VIBE to music. I love Music, its literally my life. Without music I wouldn't have a reason to be here.
I write from the heart. Sometimes I make "club" songs or "party" songs to get people hype. Music I love to make, Hip Hop. Whether its about what I'm thinking, what Im doing, how Im feeling, its me, in my music. You will see my mind in the music. Ive even thought about making other types of music, different types of expression. I will never limit myself to one type of art.

I LOVE MUSIC
Whether its Day,
If I'm at home
or at work
or laying down
or at a friends house
I'm listening to music.
I'm Ole P, 19 born and raised, still reside in Milwaukee,WI.
Ive been interested in music all my life, I grew up listening to The Beatles, Tom Petty, Tupac, Jay Z, Metallica, whatever music was put on around me.
I always loved hip hop because of the beats, and the life stories, the way people can capture you through there music. You can hear peoples emotion in music, and picture there face or how they look by just hearing there voice.
Ive been writing poetry since about 1996, and writing hip hop since 2001. I recorded my first song in 2004, did my first show in 2008.
Now @ the beginning of 2010, Im on itunes, Ive done more than 70 shows, opened for multi platinum artists D12 & opened for a sold out Kid Cudi show. Im opening with Bone Thugs N Harmony in March of 2010.
I just did a song w/ MC Eiht and got it placement on a new Coast 2 Coast mixtape hosted by Snoop Dogg. The mixtape also featured many majors like Drake, Lil Wayne, The Game, Busta Rhymes, Raekwon, Lloyd Banks & more.
You will NEVER meet someone as motivated and driven as me. I promote myself everywhere i go. At parties, at clubs, out of city, out of state, everywhere.
I put my soul into my music. I want to create art in my vision, and make the best music possible. I’ll take advice on anything from anyone, I’ve never been one to dislike someone for not liking my music.
When I'm making music, I put my heart and soul into the song. It’s not just lyrics. Anyone can rap, it takes a true artist to make a masterpiece.
Some of the biggest motivations are when I meet people who are into death metal, country music, or rock and they tell me they feel my music cuz it’s real and its not what everyone else is doing.
A lot of people have opinions about me or my music before they know who I am, or before hearing my music.
I want to have music to appeal to everyone, even people who don’t like hip hop.
I’m not trying to portray an image of someone I seen on TV or in a magazine. I respect people who respect me.
