Oz grew up on 161st and Park Ave. in the Bronx, birthplace not only to him but the genre known as Hip Hop/Rap. He fondly refers to his neighborhood as “the poor side of Park” as a reference to the Park Ave. in Manhattan, where a lot of wealth is concentrated, contrasted to his upbringing that diluted with propaganda that drove people to try to live lives that could never be obtained. Oz was first exposed in music and developed an interest while still in junior high school. He stumbled upon a composition notebook that was filled with rhymes, thoughts, and ideas. As Oz read the book, he began to envision how his own career would take off.
