OG OMyth is an emcee from the Bronx who started rapping in the early 90’s. His career path was abruptly halted by poor choices and street life. Said choices ultimately landed him a 9 ½-year bid in VA Correctional facilities.
Upon exiting the penal system in 2004 he reunited with a childhood friend, Skunk SK Oner, and began to work on music. SK was responsible for recording his first project ever; a mixtape which contained a series of rhymes written while in prison as part of a rap group called Prisoners of Conflict. He made a promise to fellow inmates that he would come home and name the project Wreck Yard Rhymes Vol. 1.
During this time, the commander in chief of the group, Lamar “Nature Boy DNL” Chapman committed suicide in 2005 which sparked the next project titled The Separation – a collection of dark songs that reflected his emotional state at that time, released in 2008. This release did not meet expectations presumably due its overly dark nature. At that time Omyth contemplated retirement over the next several years.
Then in 2012 he formed a group with G-Mak a.k.a Mak Laimbeer presently known as the legendary group OG Audio. Their first debut was a mix-drive titled Beats and Bars: Premium Quality Vol.1 in 2014. Its success was short lived due to the murder of Omyth’s first-born son in 2015 due to a domestic dispute involving his son’s mother and her new husband.
Once again Omyth contemplated giving up, but instead used it as fuel and formed what the world knows today as MSB – Manifest Something Beautiful L.L.C.., alongside SK. Omyth then immortalized his son’s favorite self-portrait as part of the company logo to intertwine his most beautiful manifestations.
MSB has now produced his latest project Certificate of Perseverance which is in stark contrast to the dark tones of his previous release. This project represents all that is possible when you stay the course, come to terms with your humanity embodying the phrase “each one, teach one” dropping gems to the youth and reminding us all that never is not an option for your dreams.
