Hailing from New Orleans, LA Mansa "King of Kings" Obi "Ruler of Hearts" takes on hip hop with an eclectic and kaleidoscopic approach. Known for his creation of the bass-less genre. The budding producer showcases an incredible attention to detail,: with cuts like “Liberation,” alternating his rap flow with an incredibly soulful hook; while bravely placing the production in the background, to let the vocals function as rhythm and bass. Not many artist can do this, correction not many artist can think like this and to create such a compelling sound. Mansa Obi strikes for an organic and direct sound. No tricks, just honesty and talent, as it also appears from the reflective and personal lyrics.Hands down, some of the most original and daring hip hop I have heard period; somewhere in between the old school INI; sample, soul influences and the new Flying Lotus tight analog beats with fat low ends.
