"After years sharpening his craft, Olumide is using the crowd as his energy catalyst"

Growing up in Riverdale, Md., Michael Olumide Ogunnubi — who performs as Olumide — saw hip-hop as a way to fool around with his siblings, imitating music videos on VHS or recording Weird Al-styled parodies with a USB microphone borrowed from a PlayStation. But after feasting on a diet of such aughts heavyweights as 50 Cent, the Game, T.I., Ludacris and Chamillionaire, the 27-year-old talent got more serious about his craft, quietly recording music and eventually releasing it into the world. - The Washington Post

#TwoFive - EP



Olumide never saw music as a career choice when he began making music with his brother in high school. Now aggressively pursuing his musical career, the DMV native has achieved 1.2 million streams on Pandora and has even partnered with Soundcloud’s premier program. It was the success of Chief Keef that inspired Olumide to look at music differently. “Chief literally led the new era of completely raw/unproduced talent succeeding without a label.” Says Olumide.

His 17-track mixtape #BeenDope confirmed the rapper’s ability to succeed as a musician. Inspired by the sounds of T.I., Kevin Gates, Jeezy, and The Game, Olumide continues to create music, collaborating with whoever he believes has the power to “influence the track with their sound.” Recent collaborations have included Grxzzly, King Gator, Anna Mvze, NoFaceRapper and more.

Having performed at Baltimore Soundstage twice, opening for Curren$y and Lil King G, Olumide knows there is a lot of work ahead. The young musician says he’s done with EP’s and ready to release a full project. Olumide believes he has established a firm foundation and is excited to shock his fans with new content and features. Ultimately, he hopes to get to the point where he can do what he loves full time. Aspiring to use his music to create opportunities for the people around him who have shown him continued support.
