Though "zero" is the beginning of everything, Oktober the artist is no beginner. Oktober began showcasing at open mics across NYC in the late 90's and met the legendary DJ/urban tastemaker Bobbito Garcia. He invited the then recordless Oktober on to his CM Famalam Radio Program where Oktober spit an impressive freestyle which got him noticed by Sondoo Records who signed him and released his first vinyl single "It Was War/Infinite Echoes". Oktober's prophetic follow-up single "When Your Empires Collapse" was an eerie description of apocalyptic ruins and urban destruction written and released just moths before the events of 9/11. Oktober went on to release many vinyl singles and classic underground albums such as "projekt:BUILDING", father of the single "NYC" and "Reset The Game" which gained Billboard chart fame,"The Art of RAW" who's controversial single "12 Cops Shot" made New York Post headlines, and "The Devil Smokes Dimebags". Oktober has currently worked with the iconic DJ Premier and released the underground smash single "U Gotta Love Us" along with the crew House Of Repz. Oktober has even flexed his skills on camera when he starred in the Universal motion picture "6 Brothaz In A Cadillac". A very good look.
Oktober has performed and appeared at countless venues in and around New York City, across the country, and beyond with excellent responses from fans, listeners, and tastemakers worldwide. Oktober has taken his Hip Hop experience from the streetlight to the limelight.
