Otis Mensah is “a young story-teller-rapper-poet with a mesmerising delivery and a talent for drawing the poetic from the everyday happenings in his life.” The 1000 Monkeys (Spoken Word/Poetry Group).The alternative hip-hop artist has risen from a new wave; age and era which embraces a contemporary take on a nostalgic authenticity in hip-hop music. The music he creates often captures a mellow vibe but a good-willed atmosphere with wordplay and lyricism that is nothing less than “ironic, honest and humorous.”

Otis’s music almost appears as though the young artist is thinking out loud and documenting a journey of thoughts when writing lyrics however drowned in playful imagery and unconventional symbolism left open to interpretation. It’s not unusual to hear Otis’s lyrics accompanied by a boom-bap sounding hip-hop instrumental with a jazzy or soulful feel drawing from influences such as Mos Def, Common & The Roots.

“Stay positive, keep generous & spread good vibes” is the message that drives Otis’s music as he perseveres in connecting to an audience that relates to his writing and shares a mutual interest for thought-provoking lyricism and expressionism.

Otis delivers quality music that’s quite refreshing and thought provoking in an era where most Hiphop is watered down with repetitive garbage. His rhymes and lyrics make him a noticeably better emcee and we love the direction his music is taking. Songs like “Over You” have excellent production and amazing vocal delivery that we love.
