Gerard Allen a/k/a OGee1523 is a hip hop pioneer and artist born in Harlem, NY and subsequently moved to The Bronx and resided in one of the boroughs most notorious housing projects in the Morrisania section. It was in these projects where he met a group of friends who later became the legendary Talented Rascals a/k/a T.R. Nation. While in this collective, he honed his skills in all five elements of the hip hop culture: graffiti, break dancing, beat box, djing and rapping.
After the Talented Rascals disbanded, he and another member formed The Funky Fresh Duo and recorded multiple songs and performed throughput the tri-state area. Later he would join forces with one of his cousins and continue to record and perform under the name ‘Da Cuzinz’.
OGee would eventually collaborate with his two oldest sons Ty-Trackz, who became a producer and Oun-P who was and still is a noted battle rapper who won 7 straight weeks on B.E.T.s 106 & Park Freestyle Friday.
Recent endeavors include an EP titled “Never 2 Old” and the chart climbing single and video “More Weed”.
