OC from NC

Octavius Taylor (aka OC from NC) is a Burlington, North Carolina MC and songwriter. With heavy music influences by Nas, Wu Tang, Common, Black Thought, Phonte, DOOM, OC has been rising in NC with his latest projects The Second Renaissance(2016) and Higher Learning(2015).  While working on his music OC and producer B Squared have had the privilege of opening for Nappy Roots and Rapsody while also performing on festivals alongside Kooley High and traveling the west coast performing.  His performances are known to have a high level of energy with producer BSquared performing live beats mixes during OC’s  performance.


Born and raised outside of the traditional Hip Hop hotspots in Burlington, NC, B Squared got his introduction and great foundation in music from his mother.  He grew up listening to powerful soul and R&b songs like Percy Sledge, Jerry Butler, Willie Hutch and Marvin Gaye just to name a few.  Once he started forming his own tastes in music he gravitated to Heavy Metal, HipHop, Jazz and old Soundtracks.
