Sports & Hip-Hop with DJ Mad Max
Omar Wilson

March 18, 2019

I want to thank my brother and CT's own RnB singer Omar Wilson for calling into my show Sports & Hip-Hop with DJ Mad Max, on WSJU radio at St. John's University! He discussed his musical inspiration, and the artists he looked up to. He reminds me of Donny Hathaway, Aaron Hall, and K-CI. He was a performer in a group called Lost Souls, from North Carolina. He described what it's like being from Norwalk, CT. We also discussed his being a three time Apollo winner. He has opened up for artists such as Boyz II Men, Jagged Edge, and Justin Timberlake. He has many underground songs such as The Jungle, 100 Ways, and Ride. He collaborated with CT's own emcee Jahan Nostra on Living Your Life. He has a song with DMX called Faith, as well as an upcoming remix of one of his songs with the Wu-Tang Clan's own chef Raekwon. He is a nominee for this year's 50th NAACP Image Awards for outstanding new artist. Congratulations on this major accomplishment! As a native of CT, it's important to support our own. CT has a lot of real talented artists, and we need to spread love! Omar Wilson's first debut album Living Legend drops on all music platforms this Friday! Go listen, purchase, and support it! Omar is one of many artists from CT putting us on the map! Big things are coming for you my bro!

I also want to thank my brother Tony Paventa from World Wrestling Radio on WSJU Radio for opening the show with me and covering the hottest sports news of the week!
