OJ Da Juiceman
:: OJ Da Juiceman :: December 2008
Southern Rapper Otis Williams Jr., known as “OJ da Juiceman” began his music career with Never Again Records, most popularly known for their 2003 summer spin-off hit
“Black Tee.” As a solo artist he quickly became a favorite on the Atlanta underground
mixtape circuit. Only rapping for 4 years his style and ability are equivalent to
a veteran that has been honing his craft for years. This quality was first noticed
by OJ’s father Otis Williams Sr. who baptized his son with the pseudonym OJ da Juiceman.
OJ is a nickname and the handle of Juiceman is based on Otis Jr’s ability to sap
a beat of all of its juice, with his lyrical flow. Born November 26,1981, in Atlanta, GA OJ grew up on the inner city streets of East Atlanta with his mother. Like most
kids raised by a single parent he had to grow up fast. Hardcore rappers The Dog
House Posse, Ruthless Juveniles and NWA provided the soundtrack as he did what he
had to do to support his family. Feeling comfortable in the streets and learning
to navigate his way he later began writing lyrics about his struggles. He prides himself on being a conqueror. “If you can survive in these harsh streets you can
conquer just about anything.” He dosen’t claim to know everything but he knows something
about will power and music. “If you’re in the trap, it makes you grind harder, when you’re riding solo-you pop something in and reflect on the lyrics.” Following the
creation of his own record label 32 Entertainment he partnered up with neighborhood
friend, Atlantic Recording artist Gucci Mane, CEO of So Icey Entertainment. OJ churned
out 6 mixtapes under 32 Entertainment and has been featured on many underground
mixtape classics. It was his release “OJ Da Juiceman hosted By Dirty Laundry” that
helped his fan base jump, his hit count almost tripled and the number of listeners
requesting him on myspace exploded. His rhymes reflects his life; what he has experienced
in the past and what he hopes the future will bring. “Oh yea, I make songs for the
ladies too” OJ states with a smile. True to his underground roots, he’s looking
forward to releasing two to three mixtapes before dropping his debut album, after
recently signing to Asylum Records August 28th 2008. His most important goal is
to come in the same game and sell records, each year the trap game changes up, and
there are still more stories to be told. Although, rap is OJ’s passion he would
also like to act and create an opportunity for his family to become entrepreneurs.
Thus, far OJ has proven that it does not take him long to accomplish desirable results.
More importantly, it is not long before he delivers on what is wanted by all… promise
and revelation. Therefore, one can only expect him to continue to juice the nectar
of life within the entertainment industry and in all of endeavors… for every drop
of success! “Everyday something crazy happens, that’s life” says OJ, he’s in this
for the long haul, and he’s unstoppable right now. He wants everybody to know he’s
here and he definitely brought ther juice. One of his lyrics sums it up “Sun Valley
Shawty, Bouldercrest Shawty, Texaco Shawty, Bomb in da Bush Shawty”. this is OJ
Da Juiceman. FOR BOOKINGS PLEASE CONTACT MIZAY ENTERTAINMENT AT 678.272.0365 OR
