Otis Mensah

Otis Mensah is a young rap-poet embodying a contemporary take on alternative hip-hop music and spoken word poetry. With endeavours to shed light on existential commonalities through vulnerable expression, Otis’ work reads like a stream of consciousness, documenting journeys of thought. Drawing from influences such as Common, Aesop Rock and The Roots, Otis delivers off-kilter lyrics with a sentimental vibe.
