Biography for Ozay Moore
Over the last 25 years, Ozay Moore (fka Othello) has proven himself to be an exceptional storyteller time and time again. Whether as a member of the classic hip hop trio, Lightheaded, or as a solo artist, Moore’s flow has always moved crowds. Aided by soulful production and a deep knowledge of hip hop culture, Moore’s music is highly relatable because he blends personal experience with larger themes that cross cultural lines.
 
As an Emcee, DJ, Muralist and community organizer, he has been an asset to the national/international Hip Hop scene in a variety of capacities. Ozay has shared the stage with Hip Hop icons such as Rakim, De La Soul and Slick Rick. He has also performed with a multitude of talented artists both known and yet to be discovered. His work has taken him all over the world as a performer and speaker where in both cases, he advocates for preservation and advancement of Hip Hop Culture. His service to the broader community has led him to become the founder and executive director of All of the Above Hip Hop Academy. An organization that mentors youth, supports artistic expression and supports the community as a hip hop cultural resource in the city of Lansing. He was recently recognized by the city of Lansing for his work in the community in its declaration of “Hip Hop Day” June 26th.
