Rumor has it that the OOH tribute at Coppin State University yesterday was beyond magnificent both inside and out — from the outstanding lineup of talent inside the building celebrating his life and work to the elements outside the building who gave the city dark clouds, high winds, and stinging rain followed by eerily bright sunshine and a double rainbow afterwards. (Coverage from that event will be coming to this website soon).
Yesterday the official video from OOH/Yo Slick’s signature solo hit, “Dope Boy” was released after making its big debut at the tribute show at Coppin. Filmed by Grasshopper Philms, it embodies the spirit of this man who will undoubtedly become a legendary figure in our community. Check it out below.
