Who is Greg “Olskool Ice-Gre” Lewis? That depends on who you ask because he is a man of many concentrations. If you ask him, he’ll simply say a creative. A self published Author, Speaker, Music and Entertainment Industry Professional, A&R, Songwriter, Personal Manager, Artist (Chicago Hip Hop Legend) and overall positive energy spirit, Greg has remained consistent in his endeavors as an entrepreneur, businessman and visionary.

Olskool is the creator and advocate for the new category of Adult Contemporary Hip Hop (ACH) introduced at the inaugrul Hollywood Independent Music Awards on August 17, 2023. The Recording Academy will no doubt add this category to the Grammy show roster.

Olskool has over 25 years of music and entertainment industry experience, 23 of those years as creative collaborator to the artist formally known as Kanye West. He was the very first A&R of GOOD Music, and founding member of the Hip Hop Duo Abstract Mindstate, the group that won Best Independent Music Video in the 2021 Hollywood Music In Media Awards

One of his proudest accomplishments is the self published motivational memoir titled “I Refuse To Quit! The Autobiography of A Dreamer.” The book is available in all formats on Amazon but you can visit www.irefusetoquit.com for a more in-depth view of the author as well as a variety of related offerings.
