Producing and making rhymes since the age of 12, Ortega the Omega is like a fine wine. His music and his talent continues to just keep getting better and better—something he attributes to a lot of hard work and dedication.
“I feel like I have a purpose in life. Years ago, my mom got into a really bad car accident when she was about to give birth to me,” he stated. “She crashed and then the seat snapped all the way back. When she went to the hospital, the doctor said I was lucky to be alive.”
Grateful for his second chance, he’s made it his mission to live life to the fullest and pursuing his dreams in the entertainment industry. That’s why he’s pleased to announce the release of his first big, major project titled “Life Ain’t But a Dream.”
“The album has more of an old school-west coast vibe to it with a modern twist,” he described. “I’ve got some auto tune on there. I have some club songs, street songs, political songs—a little bit of everything really. Every song is different, but they’re all full of energy.”
The album also includes several guest features, including by Glasses Malone, Doll-E Girl, Shade Sheist and Young Noble from The Outlawz.
“This entire project is a compilation of two to three years of a lot of songs I recorded. I put my heart and soul into this project,” explained Ortega. “When people hear it, a lot of people tell me they really like the lyrics and hooks.”
Several of the tracks on the album are inspirational in nature including the project’s hidden track titled “Achieve.” Ortega the Omega recently released the music video to the song found here on YouTube.
“Best believe, I’m going to achieve. I got the chemistry while I’m rhyming over beats,” he raps in the song. The father of three says he hopes when fans hear the song they feel inspired to pursue their dreams, and never let anyone get in the way of doing just that. “You can let your troubles, naysayers or problems sink you. You just can’t let any of it pull you down,” he said.
