@rizzystaydizzy got a chance to interview East Oakland’s 1-O.A.K. when he stopped by UC Santa Cruz for the Pop Up Concert Series hosted by the Dean of Students & the Student Union Assembly (SUA) on 5.6.17. He has been making moves lately in the music industry, collaborating & producing songs for the HBK Gang, Caleborate, & most recently Kamaiyah. In addition to that, 1-O.A.K. has just released his recent project RICWG which is being played throughout the Bay Area radio stations, especially 106.1KMEL. Check out the interview! -riz aka djrsd
With a ton of people in attendance to see the free concert for Daniel Caesar, the crowd got to witness 1-O.A.K. as he had a dope a** performance featuring live instruments with JHAWK the Guitarist on the guitar and Drew Banga on bass. He got the crowd in the groove with his smooth singing & energetic presence. The two songs that opened my eyes & hit me the hardest were Jettin’ and Lost & Found (Prod. by Kuya & Drew Banga). Honestly just being around a part of the HNRL Crew, a bunch of talented producers & musicians, I was totally starstruck. I know how hard it is to make, produce, & write music and I gave them well deserved credit because producers are not recognized enough. I am grateful to have met them & I thanked them for all that they do in representing the whole Bay Area!
