in 2010 for Best Entertainment Program for his live showcase of his debut album CHARLES
O2’s rhymes are where the street and intellect meet. Haling from the dangerous streets of East Palo Alto and educated at Clark Atlanta University’s prestigious Mass Communications department, 02 has seen the best and worst of both worlds. Stay tuned as he introduces listeners to his unique brand of hip-hop.
