The Oldhead Just Spoke

03 Nov

After 25 years of writing novels, where he became a New York Times bestselling and NAACP Image Award winning author, journalist, poet and lecturer with more than 3 million copies of his books sold worldwide, Omar Tyree now sets new goals to write and produce albums of spoken word, hip hop and R&B, with his second solo effort, The Oldhead Just Spoke.

As a visionary songwriter and executive producer with a stable of young artists (Ana Morris, WayKO London, Kool Dre and Dre Havik), Tyree is now in the process of rebooting his Hot Lava Entertainment label to establish his own sound of funky and Positive Power Music (PPM).

“The last time I did this, I was The Urban Griot with the Rising Up album back in 2002. This time I’m The Oldhead with something more to say. I have the same mission now as I had back then, to present an out-of-the-box perspective of creative and funky music that’s about more than just dancing and love talk.”

With a horde of songs that pour out of his brain to hot tracks from new school beat producers online, Tyree himself with far too much content to hold back. “Man, I’m writing like five to ten songs a week now, and these young kids can’t even understand this Positive Power Music angle that I’m coming from. So I finally came up with The Oldhead Just Spoke idea to get a lot of these songs off my plate, while featuring my young artists in their introductions, as if I’m Dr. Dre at Deathrow  and then Aftermath.
