The song that put Wizzy on the path to success was his debut track 'Walkin' which broke Eminem's Rap God record for fastest rapper delivering more words per second which received huge plaudits in the industry. This man has high level poetry to match his fast flow and can drop in and out of half time very smoothly making Ocean a very versatile artist that adapts to any bpm you throw at him as long as it's a dank beat of course.
