Omar Cruz is a Latino recording artist from Los Angeles, California who began his journey in the mid to late 2000s. He is one of the most talented rappers to have graced the microphone. His popularity in the underground mixtape circuit resulted in a major-label recording contract with Interscope/Geffen in 2006. The son of a Mexican mother and Colombian father, Cruz was born in L.A. and grew up in the South Central region close to Crenshaw. Omar was initially inspired by the music of Rakim, Big Daddy Kane and most of all N.W.A. Subsequently, he found Latino rappers namely Big Punisher and Cypress Hill influential along with Los Angeles rappers like 2Pac, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg.

Gradually drawn into the hip-hop scene, Cruz initially adopted the name Blunts LLA (Latin Lyrical Assassin). As Blunts LLA, he introduced two underground mixtapes namely 2004’s City of Gods and Blow in 2005. After his name change to Omar Cruz, he further increased his popularity with the release of Cruzifixion in 2006 and 2007 B.C. in 2007. Cruz has collaborated with artists like The Game, Pitbull, WC, Nipsey Hussle, Jay Rock, Ya Boy, Joell Ortiz, Paul Wall, Baby Bash, Sick Jacken, Skeme and many more.

In 2006, Cruz signed a record deal with Interscope/Geffen Records and began work on his major label debut album titled, Sign of the Cruz. The first single I Hang With My Dogz produced by Javie Lopez was met with a positive response and followed up with To The Top ft. Frankie J. In 2008 Omar signed on to be the host of Pimpeando on MTV Tr3s, a Latino version of Pimp My Ride. By 2009, on the heels of an anticipated album release, label politics and mismanagement began disrupting plans for the Sign of the Cruz. He released one more mixtape in 2010 titled The Hand of God and by 2011 was officially released from his contract.

After taking a two-year hiatus from the music industry, in 2012 he then partnered with Los Angeles engineer/producer Kev Da Khemist and formed the independent music label known as Los Angeles Based (LAB) Records. The first major release from this indie label is The Book of Omar street/mixtape album. It is actually the introduction to the long awaited debut album from Omar Cruz, The Passion Of Cruz.
