Holla at a nigga.⬇
I go by Oppo, born October 23rd 1990 in San Antonio, Texas. I was adopted at 2 days old and grew up in the Philadelphia area. I was never really interested in music or art until in the 4th grade when I had a series of concussions that put me out of school for a year. I lost any memories from before then, the doctors said it would come back but so far it hasn't. It was a complete 360 and all of the sudden there was all this interest and talent. I taught myself everything I know and I could play guitar, bass (stand up & electric), drums, banjo, mandolin, ukelele and keyboards. I grew up heavily influenced by punk music and by the age of 14 I was the bass player and frontman a band (The Disruptions) sharing stages with some of my idols. They called me Brad Opposition back then and that name stuck with me. I used to fool around with making beats on the computer but never took it seriously until I picked up an mpc 2000xl sometime in '09 or '10. Due to another unfortunate event I moved to Hawaii for a change of scenery and things started to take off for Opposition. I was playing shows and living the life like no tomorrow... On July 24th 2011 on the way back from a show the car I was in was hit dead-on by a drunk driver. Even though I was in the back seat I fractured my skull, broke my neck (c4,c5 and c6), broke some ribs and fractured my hip. I spent 21 days in the ICU on a ventilator then moved on to the Rehab Center of the Pacific in Honolulu, HI. I made the 10 hour flight to the east coast and spent more time at a rehab hospital located in Philadelphia, PA. I am now in a powered wheelchair, paralyzed from the chest down, I have no use of my fingers but still manage to produce music. These days I use an iPad with the Beatmaker 2 app and a stylus strapped to my hand. I started going by Oppo because I felt like part a big part of Opposition was the live shows because of the live aspect of it. No two sets were alike since all the beats were real-time I had tons of room to freestyle, on the beat! Things are different now and I needed a different name. These days I try to maintain a positive attitude on my path to recovery because I believe that everything happens for a reason no matter how shitty it seems and I know something good will come out of this, I’m just waiting for it to happen. The lawyers get rich meanwhile I still haven’t gotten a penny of my settlement. There is no one to sue because the driver who hit us did not make it through the accident. Please think twice before drinking and driving or letting someone else do it! You can check out my official website for music, videos, shows, updates and other info at iamoppo.com. Peace.
