Otis Mensah 'No Record Store Day'

New single from Sheffield's favourite rapper and poet.

Acclaimed Sheffield-based hip-hop artist and poet Otis Mensah has announced the release of his new single 'No Record Day', written at the beginning of the global pandemic.

The song delves into a feeling of cabin fever, using the cancellation of Record Store Day to explore a deeper sense of social disquiet.

Over moody psychedelic instrumentation produced by long-time friend and collaborator the intern, Otis paints the journey with frantic poetry, wrestling over ego and self-worth, and finding the political in the personal.
