It’s Like Air
At the young age of 13, Synclair Jackson discovered his passion for writing and performing rhymes. Born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland he completed his first song “Grace Blockers."
After performing "Grace Blockers" for his church, he immediately became a local hit. He realized the power of moving an audience using his art. Jackson picked his rap alias “Oxygen Pernell” as a metaphor for the role that creating music plays in his life —"it’s like air.”
Oxygen, or “the breath of hip hop” is now a senior at Penn State University, studying Information Science Technology and English Literature. He performs at open mic nights around State College, and just released his new single “Rearview.”
