OPM1 is OP1

I'm starting to get this alot. People want to know why I changed my moniker from OPM1 to OP1. First of all, I occassionally still use OPM1. However, I will not be using it to produce music anymore since I don't think that nickname encompasses my mission, passion or who I am.

OP1 means One People. The numeral  1 stands for God. So in essence, my name means God's One People. I shifted from being all about myself and my needs to realizing that we are all one people. We need to be tolerant, loving and supportive of each other.

Will Smith said it aptly in his Tolerance video. "I am He. He is She. She is We...We are One"

Enough with the hate, violence, crimes, terrorists and prejudice. We are all put here on this planet so we have to learn to COEXIST!

As One People.

Jay-Z is Number One

Congratulations to my man Jay-Z! His new album Blueprint 3 has only been out for a week and he's already creating records. The Blueprint 3, hit number one on the Billboard 200 charts this week selling over 476,000 copies.
And that's not unusual for the rapper, considering this is his 11th album to hit the top spot, which makes him the most successful solo artist since Elvis Presley!!!

One of my favorite song is Empire State. If you haven't seen the performance with Alicia Keys at either the VMAs or Madison Square Garden...then check it out below. It's fire!
