Welcome, welcome one and all! Today I am sitting down with brand new, emerging hip hop collective OSP. Get the inside scoop below and listen to their debut single ‘Breathe’.
What would you say first sparked your interest in music/who inspired you to make music?
Influences in our environment, such as what our parents were playing, and the music our friends were making, prompted a desire to convey our own message.
How would you describe the music you are currently creating?
It’s an eclectic mix of new school and old school hip hop, r&b, dancehall and grime. It fuses together to create an authentic feel that listeners can connect with.
What does your creative process look like?
We meet up every Wednesday at ski rize studios, fling instrumentals on, bounce ideas back and forth, then we let the sparks fly. Ultimately, every time we link up, the synergy is on point, we laugh until ribs are cracked and we always have to have good quality munch, that’s key.
Who would you most like to collaborate with? (let’s send it out to the universe and make it happen!)
Little Simz, kabaka pyramid, Chronixx, Sway decipher, Kendrick Lamar, j Cole
What is the one message you would like to send out to your fans?
The ultimate message is love and community. Thank you for joining us on or journey thus far. The futures looking beautiful.
What’s your top tip to rejuvenate your creativity/get over a writer’s block?
Esa: Spending quality time with friends and family
Silqe: Soaking in new experiences
J Blackz: Reconnecting with nature
Subject: learning a new skill or going out-out
