Still working on that hot first release.



Official, born in the inner city of Chicago 's Westside, began to pursue a career in Hip Hop while in his college days at Northern Illinois.

With the release of two mixtapes (Reporting Live from the Matrix, Red Album) and a growing buzz, H$M performed from state to state, received invites to open for Noreaga, Red Café and other big named artists. Still with ties to H$M, in 2013 Official branched off to build the "Official" brand and has worked with an array producers in and outside the country. In 2014 he release the single "Flawless" (available on ITunes), which was featured on Urban Grind Comcast television. The release stamped the "Official" brand and helped elevate Official's buzz even more. Since, he has released multiple hits (Finessin', Like Me, Who I Be) that have been featured on the major blogs and mixtape media outlets (MyMixtapez, ThisIs50, VladTV etc). His recent collaboration with Westside natives, Hollywood Shawtyz, on the hit single "Movie" has received major radio play and 400k youtube viewers.
