OKP says Yes to Hoodtreason

N.Y. Oil, best known for his controversial single, and accompanying video, “Ya’ll Should All Get Lynched,” a declaration of sorts, stating that every emcee that perpetuates the gangster, and over-sexualized persona needs to be done away with. This was a bold statement from the New York rapper, and the viral success of this song could make it seem like a gimmick for attention. But it’s not. N.Y. Oil has no gimmicks, holds no punches, and comes straight, no chaser, on every song.

Clutch Interviews Jesse Boykins


"At twenty-three years old he is professionally trained musician, not just one of those cute carbon-copied, talent less R&B artist we’ve encountered over the years. The pianist, guitarist, vocal arranger, producer and self- taught music engineer is a former musical apprentice of the man sistas wouldn’t mind being a love slave too, Mr.Bilal. Like his teacher who embodies a keen ear for all eclectic genres of music, Boykins the Chicago born, Jamaican, Miami and Brooklyn raised artist bares new life to a very a mild phase in R&B where it feels like no dude is pushing the bar to be other than a sex symbol."
