Event Details

One of the true leaders of the scene, Steph knows more about Tulsa history and Black Wall Street than any other artist. He often refers to himself as ‘Dick Rowland’ or ‘Dicky Ro’ and says he channels the spirit of Rowland in his rhymes.

 Steph is interested in the alchemy of turning tragedy to triumph, and has consistently done things to ‘reclaim’ or ‘flip’ some of the darker aspects of Tulsa’s past. That theme was a constant thread through his 2019 opus Born on Black Wall Street. For example, in his ‘Upside’ video Steph threw a party on the lawn of the ‘Brady Mansion’ – which was once the home of infamous KKK member and Tulsa business leader Tate Brady.  In 2019, Steph partnered with his childhood friend former NFL running back Felix Jones to create Skyline Star Records and turn the Brady Mansion into the Skyline Mansion.

The impact of Steph Simon on the city of Tulsa extends even beyond the music he makes. Simon, a father of two girls, is currently partnering with a North Tulsa school to create and implement a new hip-hop education program. Steph is also the creator of World Culture Music Fest, Oklahoma’s largest hip-hop festival and conference. Steph plans to release multiple new projects and music videos in 2020.

 Steph Simon is a dope AF hip-hop artist whose music is as authentic as his chilled, happy-go-lucky personality. 

His musical taste, coupled with his lyrical artistry, is smooth and cultivates a sound that’s uniquely Black Wall Street. This means his rhymes don’t sound like the dirty south rap, East Coast, or West Coast. Nor does Simon’s rap sound like the Midwest. Simon sounds like Simon. Or, I guess we could say, Steph Simon, sounds like Greenwood, Archer, and Pine.
