Osi dedicates this to the choir, as he seeks to display his ability to craft intense, eye-opening freestyles with a fluid flow. This is also a glimpse of his LP Catharsis, which is set to drop next spring.
Osi Mac is a 21-year-old Nigerian-Swiss American emcee hailing Placentia, California. He utilizes a unique penchant: combining intense honesty with poetic consciousness. Some influences include Kendrick Lamar, J.Cole and Mick Jenkins. Mac’s ultimate goals are to free minds and heal souls, while also Orange County on the map of musical meccas.
From a young age, Osi relied on hip-hop to cope with the realities of living in a abusive, broken household. Frequently listening to a wide array of artists ranging from: Nas, Biggie and Tupac to Common, Eminem, Kanye and Lauryn Hill, he began penning bars for fun – ultimately developing a cunning ability to formulate eye-opening freestyles. Now in college, the OC native decided to pursue Hip-Hop wholeheartedly.
Osi began to recognize his talents after winning California State University, Fullerton’s first #NoBeatJustBars student rap contest. This accomplishment allowed him to performing at their first Hip-Hop symposium. He would end up moving a large crowd with a charismatic and energetic stage presence – ultimately garnishing attention and signing a contract with San Francisco based independent label, Richland Records.
An LP, Catharsis is currently in the works, slated for this spring.
