Straight from the 5th forgotten borough, Staten Island, NY (aka Shaolin), Optometrist is an upcoming artist and producer with an album set to blow and bring that Gatin Staten raw East Coast flava back into the hip-hop realm. Super Rhymes: The Pen & Pad Chronicles is complete with hard hittin’, head bangin rhythms combined with tenacious delivery and lyrics. Versatile in every form of the meaning, this album has party joints, battle joints, story joints, conscious joints and even a screw joint for heads to nod to. Opt has a strong sense of entrepreneurial values and continues to add on to his resume. He has financed his album and performed at showcases in some of NYC's finest clubs and venues creating a consistent buzz for himself
Some highlights include performances at the Victory 2005 NJ with multi-platinum Grammy winning artist Mya, and at The 10th Annual Fordham Road Renaissance Festival in the Mecca of hip-hop, the Boogie Down Bronx. At the age of 16 he won the grand prize at The Shaolin Showdown Showcase with a group that he co-founded called The Surgeons. Born and raised in Staten Island, he represents this borough to the fullest and he is poised at bringing the “Golden Era” style of hip-hop back to the mic
