Biography

2013 Texas Solo Artist Award Finalist, One who May Ascend
(OMA), arrived on this planet in Madison, Tennessee in June, 1994, and
was raised in Madison, Bronx, New York; Fort Worth, Arlington, Corpus
Christi, and College Station, Texas. Representing the Dallas/Fort Worth
area and the world as a whole, OMA is not your cliche drug-slinging
wanna-be thug rapper. His style is - to say the least - different. With
intricate lyrical content and concepts that can only be explained by
some level of divine intervention, OMA has many titles, among them:
leader, lyricist, martial artist, entrepreneur, underdog, and
philosopher, but above all, he is a human being.

OMA began writing lyrics at the age of 14. Since then, he has
released two major works - "ASCENDING; The Best of OMA" (Released May
17, 2013) and "Breaking Even" (Released August 3, 2013), performed in
multiple events such as the 1st Annual Texas A&M - Corpus Christi
"APOLLO" 2013, the Corpus Christi Music Walk June 2013, the Corpus
Christi Art Walk August 2013, the 2013 Battle of the Bands at the Texas
House of Rock, the Dallas Music Conference and Showcase (DMCAS) 2013,
the 2013 "Rap-Zilla" showcase in Austin, the 2013 Texas Solo Artist Award Finals, the Wakarusa  Waka Winter Classic 2014 after being one of five North Texas artists chosen to compete at the "Battle for Wakarusa" showcase at Trees in Dallas Texas, the 26th SBSLC (Southwestern Black Student Leadership Conference) freestyle rap battle in 2014, worked on numerous
collaborative projects (including the release of the Metal/Rap EP,
"Breaking Even" with Corpus Christi native band, The Fallen), has been
streamed on numerous radio stations such as: HNS Radio, Unsigned Hype
Radio, NewTribez Radio, Radio Airplay, and KANM Radio, (including his
interview on KANM), has had his premier demo, "ASCENDING", featured at the Austin Mic Exchange's Mix-tape Market Place after being selected as one of the twenty local artists to be featured at the 2014 MLK Block Party hosted by the Austin Hip-Hop Scene, and has received many awards, including the
Scholastic Silver Key award for poetry on the national-level. He is
currently unsigned and a student in the Texas A&M system, which has played a major part in his success; from his original
compositions being studied in Dr. T.J. Currys Introduction to Hip-Hop
Philosophy Class (PHIL 252-500) on campus, to being featured on Texas
A&Ms Department on Hispanic Studies Facebook page for an original
five minute song written fully in Castilian Spanish, to winning the 26th
annual SBSLC (Southwestern Black Student Leadership Conference)
freestyle rap battle hosted by DJ BANDCAMP (Official DJ of Stalley, the
Indiana Pacers, and BET 106 and Park) and Texas A&M.


In the past, my acquired experience and skill-set has enabled me to
win a National Scholastics silver key award for poetry, have my premier demo, "ASCENDING", featured at the Austin Mic Exchange's
Mix-tape Market Place after being selected as one of the twenty local
artists to be featured at the 2014 MLK Block Party hosted by the Austin
Hip-Hop Scene, perform original
musical compositions in Arlington's America's Best Coffee shop, family

Lyrics

Psychic Hotline (Bonus Track)

Written By: One who May Ascend

Psychic Hotline
Intro
Hello? Is this the psychic hotline?
Hell no! I’m not fine, oft I’m
Disinterested, thinking about rhythm and reason in my off time
I’ve stopped trying to figure life out, I’m not lying
Verse 1
I don’t know this dual personality
Who goes bursting out of me
It just goes to show your mentality
Your analogy of life was boxes of chocolates
It’s actually more like a tool box –
You get used lots of times, abused, lost
And screwed enough, just don’t screw it up
But if that’s how the shit shat out, you get that brown
Big crap while you stay full of shit that’s foul
Cut the chit-chat now, look at me like “H-h-how dare you!”
And then I’ll tear you a new one, I’d be scared too
They’ve got some real crazies out there – koo-koo, nuts
Coco for koo-koo puffs
The things they do now? Sickening!
But they need one more coat of grease and a peeled banana peel to out-slick me
Chorus
Hello? Is this the psychic hotline?
Hell no! I’m not fine, oft I’m
Disinterested, thinking about rhythm and reason in my off time
I’ve stopped trying to figure life out, I’m not lying
I’ve lost the needle in my side since I side with common people
But it’s embarrassing with them, rarely sharing the basic similarities
All unequal, often evil
Not half at 49%, not all that bad
Verse 2
But how much longer can I take shit?
If life was a bitch, by now, I would have raped it
Taken her naked to the basement
Asking from what end she wants to take it
While I tape it for my personal entertainment
And I’m educated, clever enough to sever and stuff the body in the cellar then to
Properly dispose of the not-pretty bodily remains responsibly
Afterwards, I would be…unremorseful
Believe the rumors, , their more true
More often than not, if I’m coming for you, I don’t knock, I’m going to walk into your dorm room
With you there or not, I’d scare the snot out suckers
Like the nightmare you thought I was
Unless you’re sleep deprived,
Each day you wake up is one less to be alive
So most of us need peace of mind
If I had any left, I’d give you a piece of mine
Sheesh! This guy’s crazy – who knows why he hasn’t dealt
With psychiatric help?
Verse 3
But not everything’s copacetic –
I can’t cope with headaches
As a youngling, I was jumping – missed the bed
Hit my head instead, the doctor then said
“I don’t know how the hell he isn’t dead”
That can’t be good like being in Momma’s bladder
As a baby while she cut embalmed cadavers
Is all of that the reason I’d bring a knife to a gunfight
And why you should run like the bitch you are to me
I’d split an arm or three, slit your arteries
Rip apart your feet and strip your heart for free
If you charge a fee, I’ve hardly need for man’s Smith n Wesson’s
I’ve done deeds more than myth and legends
Dark past, darker future since there is a
Chance of becoming an amateur janitor
With cleaning canisters
I’d be wiping my hienie while peeing urine slow
Allow me to polish this turd, my conscious disturbed
Damned if I clean turds in bowls, sanitizing urinals as a germaphobe
Bickering about degrees because there’s no
Assurance so, what the fuck did I earn it for?
When I lose it in the first degree, you’re in no
Position to listen in prison after asking me “What you’re in for?”
Fuck the chorus whore
“Hello? Is this the psychic hotline?”
Hell no! I’ve stopped trying
You don’t mind? It don’t matter
You don’t matter, I don’t mind
It’s only a matter of time before I take matters in my
Own hands, I’ve got some problems
But I’ve mentioned all of them
Oh, and my cock don’t fit the condoms I got
From my old man, so can
You buy lots of the ones I got
So I can get rid of all them?
Why? Why not? No? Damn!
