In addition to writing poetry, the Houston, Texas born poet Orend Johnson Jr also stepped into the world of music as Optimistic Gangstaptimistic aka Optimistic G.
Over the years, he developed a rapidly growing fan base due to his relentless efforts. Today, he is known for his development and popularization of a hip-hop/rap subgenre called “Toxi-flow.” He captivates the industry with his unique, intoxicating style.
His music began spreading beyond his hometown soon after his debut release, “The Goatseason.”. He generated a buzz that could not be ignored when compliments started flying in. As an entrepreneur, social media influencer, social activist, and label executive, Optimistic G has used his popularity to reach out even further to his city, acting as a community leader to the youth. Although Optimistic G seems to have a full plate, he still takes time to refine his craft and produce music that no one else can match.
The artist followed up with a new project, “Life is Dead (Side A)” while also preparing the follow up, “Life is Dead (Side B).”
With his Toxi-flow and hypnotic vibe, the project offers an experience of a lifetime not to be missed. You can learn more about Houston bred artist and listen to his music by following him on Instagram or Twitter.
