There are numerous stories of young individuals who defy the odds in the world today, tackling life heads on without anything but their dreams, passion, and unwavering determination to succeed, which belies their age. As one of those individuals with an indomitable spirit and unyielding determination, a highly accomplished entrepreneur and rapper, OWKZ hopes to inspire other young people and drive home the point that one’s humble beginning should not hinder future success.
Born in Detroit, Michigan and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada, OWKZ is a 23-year-old American rapper dominating the music scene with his brilliant sound and artistic lyrics. He has been making music for almost three years, constantly introducing new and upbeat tunes to his discography by releasing a new album every six to eight months and dropping new music videos every two weeks for the last two years through his independent record label, ONEWAY.

His latest album, The Birth Of Zo, can be found on all major streaming platforms. You can also find his latest single, “How I Feel” ft. Peezy (engineered by JAY -T) on all major streaming platforms and the official music video on YouTube.
Growing up in the hustle-bustle of Las Vegas, OWKZ watched his mom struggle to make ends meet and make life better for them. This motivated him to be different and strive for more. “I wanted to do something positive and creative that would put me in a position to help people in the same situation I was in,” he shared. To bring his plans to fruition, this multifaceted artist struck out on his own in the entrepreneurial space and started his clothing brand and record label, ONEWAYSOUND LLC.
Through his label, OWKZ makes “hustler music” for people going through hard times or who have been through hard times by combining the richness of his experiences and ideas from his environment into his music to highlight various societal issues and drive changes. “I make music for people who want to change their situation for the better and accomplish their goals,” he said. Driven to create a legacy and impact the lives of people worldwide through his music and actions, this brilliant young artist is separated from the competition by his genuinity. “I’m humble, and I lead by example. I don’t brag too much, no clout chasing, and I let my music speak for itself,” he said. “I outwork my competition, and I’ve stayed consistent by constantly putting out new material, so to conclude, I feel like my work ethic helps me stand out from other artists.”
OWKZ wants to continue making positive impacts with his music in the coming years, sign aspiring artists to his record label, create passive income, invest into real estate and the stock market, build generational wealth, travel the world, and start a family.
