Ojaye S. (could’ve been part of the set of dudes with rilly cool-sounding names)
This dude was in my gym class, too. At first I thought they were calling him “O.J.” like Simpson (prior to the infamous murders). Then the yearbook came out and I was like, “Oh, word? It’s actually “Ojaye”? Cool…”
In this pic he looks kinda like a young Big Daddy Kane – who along with Kool G. Rap, often goes unmentioned when we talk about the all-time great rappers. But the fact remains that in the middle-to-new-school era, the Mount Rushmore of MCs was Big Daddy Kane, Rakim, KRS One and Kool G. Rap. Try and tell me different.
If you’re giving me votes for Kool Moe Dee I can at least hear what you’re saying. If you’re going on about Uncle L, fughedaboutit. I can accept an argument for Slick Rick, too, but that’s about alls I’ll tolerate over here…
