Artist On The Rise: Mac3
On The 6th presents MAC3 an artist on the rise.
Take a minute and get to know MAC3.
My name is Vincent Oglesby aka MAC3 I’m from Dos Palos,CA.
I was born and raised a small town community playing sports from age of 10 to 21 looking to make a career out of playing football or baseball until one unfortunate night that changed my life forever. I was in a horrible car accident that almost cost me my life. It cost me my scholarship because of how long it took me to recover.
My dreams of being a professional athlete were over. I started doing what I had to do to survive and overcome the obstacles that I was dealt so I redefined myself and took on the street name of MAC and in memory of my past dreams I added the number 3 which is the number I always wore when I played sports.
I became MAC3. I started off free styling for fun at a young age but, since sports was my passion, rapping was just a hobby. After my accident I took to rapping as a way to express myself and let out the struggles.
Rapping became more serious and I looked for ways to improve my talent. I began writing and recording my lyrics in a homemade studio. I let family and friends hear my music and asked for honest critiques, and suggestions for improvements. To my surprise there was very little critique and I mostly received praises from people who listened to my music. They all seemed to have a common area of compliment and that was that I spoke from the heart and I rapped about my real life not some made up lies trying to pose as somebody I’m not, or about things I don't or didn't have.
My flow is unique and my delivery is appealing. I want to use what I have been through to show myself and my fans that success it possible not matter what trials and tribulations you have endured in life, never give up go hard for whatever you have a passion for.
