Optimus Rhymes

Since early childhood Optimus has been rapping and gaining various influences from the greats that came before him.  Upon graduating from Nash Central High School in 2008, he gained acceptance into the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on a Teaching Fellows scholarship.  Optimus records a majority of his music in the UL (Undergrad Library) Studio.  He is currently unsigned but has a main goal to revive hip hop from its current state of ignorance and revamp the prestige that it formerly had.  Optimus credits amongst his influences Mos Def, Common, Talib Kweli, The Cool Kids, A Tribe Called Quest, Pete Rock, Pharoahe and Monch.
