The planet of Brooklyn has spawned some of the most talented and prolific hip hop artists in history. From East New York to Brooklyn Heights the borough is notoriously thorough when it comes to spawning the best that rap has to offer. Ockz is the latest wordsmith to come from the hallowed ground of Bed Stuy Brooklyn to stake claim to his spot in the rich hip hop legacy of his neighborhood. Somewhat of a nefarious character, Ockz has been known to have affiliations all over the map from the East Side of Detroit to the West Side of Baltimore.
When it comes to the music he deftly weaves tales of street life and redemption over neck breaking soulful production. The music is a throwback sound reminiscent of a modern day Kool G Rap delivered by a rich, deep baritone voice that cuts through the track and makes you listen.
The Prestige' is also laced with contributions by fellow juggernaut emcees like Quadir Lateef, Skyzoo and Conway The Machine just to name a few

About the Curator - Doran Nelson
Doran Nelson Hailing from the Bronx, New York, upon hearing his first rap record, it was love at first listen. At a time when hip hop was still young, fresh and new he began DJing. Initially Inf began blending his father’s soul records with hip hop instrumentals purchased from the local record stores that his pocket change had become so familiar with. Now, amongst a neighbourhood following and growing demand, his freestyle mixes suddenly became valued. Spinning heads as well as records, before he knew it, Inf found himself hosting block parties, school dances, talent shows and as he proclaims “wherever there were people and music…so was I.”
Naturally,Doran's appreciation for authentic HipHop music has him in the mix of a lot of tastemakers depending on his distinctive taste for up & coming artist. Today doran is a dj over at www.dtfradio with partner and friend named Doggie Diamonds Tv which airs live every Wednesday night 7-9pm via tunein app under DTF RADIO.
