Meet Onpointop: The Hip-Hop Artist Behind the Hit Album ‘Fstyles and Trapflows 2’
Hip-hop music, an ever-evolving genre, has witnessed numerous artists rise and shine, but few possess the dynamic versatility and entrepreneurial spirit of Onpointop. As the calendar flipped to November 30th, this multifaceted artist dropped a bombshell on the music scene with his latest project, ‘Fstyles and Trapflows 2‘, a sequel to the much-acclaimed ‘Fstars and Trappers‘. But who is Onpointop, and what makes him tick?
Meet Onpointop—not just a name, but a brand, a movement. Signed, managed, and owned by Olofepence, his second alias and brand label, Onpointop is a business mogul, a tycoon in his own right. His journey to the musical zenith is no ordinary tale. As a young dreamer with a distinct passion for film and writing, he trod the path of drama schools and was involved in numerous productions. This exposure to diverse artistic environments honed his storytelling skills, culminating in the publication of his first book, ‘Calculated Risk’.
But Onpointop’s artistry doesn’t end there. He’s the quintessential DIY artist—mixing, mastering, engineering, and producing his own songs. His band, an assembly of childhood friends, showcases his ability to orchestrate music harmoniously, further solidifying his stature as a true musician. The guitar in his hands is not just an instrument; it’s a portal to his soulful expressions, promising a project in 2024 that will spotlight this intimate musical relationship.
“Music for me is more than just lyrics and beats. It’s about weaving stories and emotions. And when I play the guitar, it’s like telling those stories without words,” he adds.
With a background in business studies, Onpointop isn’t just another artist in the industry; he’s a strategist and a thinker. His business acumen is evident in how he approaches his music career, making him a formidable competitor in the industry. His genre? Hip-hop at its core, but Onpointop is no one-trick pony. His diverse catalog bears testimony to his ability to transcend musical boundaries.
“I see myself as an artist without borders. Hip-hop is my foundation, but I’m always exploring, blending different genres into my own unique sound,” said Onpointop.
What drives Onpointop to music? It’s not just a skill but a craft he has mastered, collaborating with the crème de la crème of the UK music scene—Jessie J, J Hus, Stormzy, Sam Smith, Charlie Sloth, and more. But it’s not just about the names; it’s about the art of music-making, a field where Onpointop confesses he hasn’t yet unleashed his full potential.
His forthcoming project, ‘Best of O’, slated for a December 15th release, is not just an album; it’s a mosaic of his musical journey, an additional treat to the fans of ‘Fstyles and Trapflows 2’. It’s his way of keeping the beats alive throughout 2024, a testament to his dedication to keeping his music in perpetual motion.
But it’s not all smooth sailing. Onpointop candidly shares the challenges he’s faced, notably in taking music seriously as he did with film or business. Yet, his determination and resilience shine through his words and music. His vision for the next five years is nothing short of extraordinary—envisioning himself as a globally recognized business mogul and a musical icon whose songs resonate in every corner of the world.
He believes in the power of self-reliance and resilience. “You only lose when you quit,” he muses, a mantra that encapsulates his journey.
