In the world of music, there are artists who are born with a silver spoon, and then there are those like OFB Bozo, the CEO of Only For My Brothers music group. His journey from the streets of California to the stage has been nothing short of remarkable, filled with challenges and triumphs that have shaped him into the artist he is today.
OFB Bozo, whose real name is a testament to his roots, was born in the Antelope Valley in a specific city called Lancaster, California. However, he was raised in the San Fernando Valley and Watts, California, areas known for their tough streets and the struggles that come with them. It’s in these very streets that OFB Bozo’s story begins.
“I wasn’t raised with a silver spoon. I was surrounded by people who had to get it by any means, so I would say I am a product of the struggle,” OFB Bozo shares. “I’ve lost many family members, friends, and partners on this journey.” One of the most challenging aspects of his music career was realizing that money doesn’t define an artist. “It literally just helps create the image and, honestly, in my opinion, brings more problems for one to manage,” he says. This revelation led him to focus on his craft and authenticity over material wealth.
When asked about his musical inspirations, OFB Bozo points to Nipsey Hussle. “He spoke more on how he was raised and how he lived. If you’re from where I’m from or even live a lifestyle close, you can’t really relate to most music nowadays,” he reflects. OFB Bozo’s music carries a message that reflects his upbringing and the struggles he’s faced. He wants his listeners to understand the difficulty of making it out of a rough or challenging environment and how important it is to rise above and make something of oneself.
As for what’s on the horizon, OFB Bozo recently dropped a tape called “Only For My Brothers,” which is available on all streaming platforms. It features collaborations with artists like Bino Rideaux, Spank Nitti James, and more. He’s also released singles after the tape and is currently hard at work on a new project set to drop this fall.
