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.
