Oxygen Pernell has been writing rhymes since he was 13 years old. Though music has always been a passion of Pernell's, it all began early on in the form of poetry. It wasn’t until later after some convincing by a friend he began turning his poetry into songs writing his first song called "Grace Blockers" for a talent show at his local church. Pernell seeing that he had the ability to move a crowd decided to pursue his ambitions as a hip-hop artist and use his gift of writing to share his thoughts with the world through music. Born and raised in Baltimore Maryland, it was during his high school years that he began to perfect his craft writing daily and free styling for hours to develop his flow and lyrical persona.
