During his debut show at Glastonbury, BBC Introducing stage last month, OTIS MENSAH dropped his track, ‘Free The Slaves’.
Sporting a sporadically dope elements of sugary-light hip-hop/R&B, the three-minute slammer talks about rebellion, and breaking out of a mundane, oppressed life.
If you haven’t heard of this conscious artist from Sheffield, covering everyday issues are the core subject of his expanding discography, often coupled with a rich soulful hip-hop/boom-bap -esque groove – a sound similar to heavyweights, Mos Def, Common and The Roots.
OTIS MENISH has previously released ‘Creep & Crawl’ which received appreciation from online hip-hop tastemakers…and the crowd at his Glastonbury show.
His upriser is worth a visit; start with ‘Free The Slaves’.
