1983 formally known as Derrick M. Taylor in Oklahoma City. He is also known as “O”. Official is from the Eastside of Atlanta Lithonia GA, Zone 6. He is of both Native American and African American descent. Derrick who everyone knows as Official lived a normal life but it was clear that he was destined for greatness. At the very young age of 6 he wrote his first lyric and it was then he decided that he wanted to pursue a music career but the road ahead wasn’t going to be easy. Having found this new path he was afraid of what people might think so he kept it to himself as then his mother made him pursue basketball to keep him out of trouble. He Became a Local basketball star and soon went on to play semi Pro. After 3 years of Playing Derrick decided that it was time for him to become what he always wanted to be and that was a Rap Star. He made the decision to leave and immediately went head first in to the game. His original stage name Official stems from his switch from Basketball to a Rapper. when he cut his first song his brother told him it was Official. It was Evident that this is what he should of been doing all along. Official is a perfect mix of hip-hop, Rap, and R&B with a fresh delivery. Official has performed at many Nightclubs in Atlanta and have won numerous Open mic’s Talent competitions. He has a love for the art of music that shines through his song and in his short years of rapping he has grown from a quiet kid into a well rounded young man and will achieve greatness.

Style:

Official is considered a backpack Rap Artist. He writes all his own music. Official doesn’t talk about what all the other rappers are

talking about today. He prides himself on being different. His audience
is Clean cut, fun loving entertainment. What sets

him apart from everyone else is he doesn’t smoke or drink, he writes
his own music and is fully involved in everything he does musically. He
takes the time to get to know all his fans. He answers every message
