Born in the Bronx, spent his first 5 years in Nigeria and returned back to the States residing in Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn NY. His parents owned a store catered to aficionados of the arts, his cousin was a DJ & his Sister was a huge music fan.

Accepted as an art major at LaGuardia High school for performing arts at age 12, he also became well known as a young DJ/Rapper/Breakdancer. His rep of being a good student got him in a scholarship program and summer gigs on Wall street as a teen. Before graduating, Osa and friends created a group that would become underground notables, The AmountBoyz (ABZ): a Dance/Music crew, doing shows, radio interviews, endorsement deals, MTV, BET, etc. With much collective success under their belts, including background performances/touing with Madonna, Diddy, Missy etc.

He also worked at several record labels and media companies learning the ropes of the industry, preparing him to be both an Artist and a keen prospective entertainment business figure. Shortly after with the support of his ABZ crew, Osa moved to Los Angeles and never looked back, He has slew of mixtapes out right now starting with the IRapper series (Vol 1-3) and his current release Crowned. He is destined to do great things in this industry a Prince taking his throne.

Wow. 5/5

OSA reminds me of Lupe Fiasco, the late Dolla, or Mickey Factz, depending on the track. He's just not as lyrically profound as Lupe or Mickey Factz, but he has some nice bars ("dude's gettin' weak early...Monday").
Dude has a sick flow that easily adapts to the ridiculously fresh production he has behind him.
Speaking of which, shit's amazing. In each track, there's like a standout instrument (i.e. a violin, bass guitar, a bitchass flute, etc.) or a standout, unknown feature (lmao I swear, on this one track, I heard an opera singer providing some ad-libs, lmao not that Jeezy shit, but some Charlotte Church break a fuckin' window pane-type shit).
Lmao wait, is this guy British? Or of British descent? Wtf? Is that someone else lol? Listen to track #5. He possesses that Play-Doh flow.
Definitely, worth a listen.

I dig it

The production is really good, im going to give it a lil higher of a rating because of that, the dude that worked on them stepped out of the BS beats and put some work into it instead of just sittin at a computer hooked up to a Korg pad and push out some more Shitty computerized shit, OSA is not that bad, he could work on his delivery.
6.5/10 it's probably something you gotta listen to a few times to like it.
      Reppin that *504 and 813*
* I Bleed Black and Gold, (20-10 Saints gone make noise again) *
