'Internet Cafe' inspired by documentary about internet gaming addiction and rehabilitation.

Acclaimed hip-hop artist and poet Otis Mensah has announced his new single Internet Cafe, inspired by the 2013 documentary Web Junkie, a film about internet gaming addiction and a rehabilitation centre in Beijing, China, claiming to treat it.

On a backdrop of mellow and minimalist instrumentation from Elijah Bane, Otis uses narrative poetry to critique the pathology of young people disconnected from society, exploring excessive internet use and social exhaustion.
