Get to Know the Next Big Artist Out of Atlanta, Rapper OGPD


Rising artist OGPD (On God Purpose Driven) is determined to make a name for himself in the world of hip-hop! Born in Mount Vernon, New York and raised in the Bronx, the rapper grew up with a musical background. His father was one of the biggest DJs in uptown Bronx and OGPD would always be around him, but it wasn’t until 2010 that he would start creating hip-hop music, learning from a couple of Grammy winning engineers too.


In 2014, he moved to Atlanta, where the music scene was buzzing at the time and he used this opportunity to engineer, as well as connect with different artists. After recording his first song in 2018, it was then that OGPD really started dabbling in hip-hop. He credits his father as his inspiration and a few music moguls, including 50 Cent, Jay-Z, Diddy and Nipsey Hussle.
