Ocean Wisdom – 95′ Re Style.


Ocean Wisdom pays homage to arguably one of the greatest ever freestyles.

22 Years ago the world was introduced to a young unknown Jay-Z alongside the super talented Big L. An epic timeless freestyle which is still just as classic today was dropped to the world. Rhyming over Milkbone ‘Keep It Real’ instrumental, the laid back piano laden production was the base for Big L & Jay Z to go back and forth for 7 minutes. Epic punchlines, classic bars and perfect flows all wrapped up in 7 minutes.

Fast Forward 22 years and Ocean Wisdom arguably one of the best things to happen to hiphop for years, takes on the 7 minute freestyle. Reworking some of Jay-Z classic lines from the freestyle and putting his own unique take on this timeless freestyle. This will arguably be the best 2 minutes of your week.

In his own words:

‘It’s been 22 years to the day since the legendary Jay Z and Big L freestyle on the Stretch & Bobbito show! Had to hit studio to drop a Jay Z inspired lyric for listeners…U gotta pay homage to the OG’s’

Everything from Soul, Jazz, Classical, Rock, Pop you name it, it was on the stereo when I was growing up. I got into HipHop in 93/94 and the rest as they say is history! From a long haired skateboard kid growing up in Glastonbury, via Edinburgh for a few years. Now making moves in London for the last ten years and counting. My journey has been fuelled by music. I have been DJ'ing for the best part of ten years, starting of as a DMC battle DJ after smashing my way through the Scottish DMC finals, through to the London DMC finals. I turned my hand to mix cds, then radio, as well as tearing up dance floors from Edinburgh to London town then back again. Sharing the stage with everyone from Trevor Nelson to Cutmaster Swift along the way. I have passed my knowledge and skills on as a DJ tutor and I was the scratch DJ for Sky Sports, for their weekly football show "Premier League Preview". My blog here is to keep you up to date with the latest news from the urban world, reviews, write ups, features. As well as positive, mindful blogs, tell a friend to tell a friend. Beats, Rhymes and Life. Peace, Peace DJ Myme.
