Hailing from Queens, New York, Otis buried himself in music from a young age as a means of escaping an unstable and abusive home life. His passion for hip hop drove him from lunchroom cyphers to sharing stages with heavyweights such as Action BronsonDiploJ.ColeMac MillerAb Soul and more.   While Otis always scribbled rhymes in the back of the classroom, it wasn't until he heard Common and Sadat-X on 1999 that he realized he wanted a career in hip hop.


By 1999 Otis began writing, producing, mixing and mastering his own music. His diligence paid off in 2011, when Otis was afforded the opportunity to mix and executive produce three projects for YC The Cynic (now known as Kemba), including his 2013 GNK album.  This led to a performance opportunity at the four year anniversary of “Comedy at the Knitting Factory,” hosted by Hannibal Buress. Here, Otis performed before Chris Rock's surprise performance and comedian Amy Schumer later co-signed Otis's song "Fiona."  In 2014, following his second straight appearance at CMJ week and a special guest performance at the NY Loves Dilla event, Otis performed alongside YC at the Heineken Green Room with Ghostface Killah, and performed at the 2015 Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival. Named one of the top "underground" artists of 2011 and 2012. Otis rekindled flames in 2017 with his EP "Helen Keller, which helped land him on Statik Selektahs "Show Off Radio". The video for his song "Demons into Diamonds" landed him in the NY Indie Film Festival, as well as a premiere on Beats1 Apple Radio. Otis is getting ready to set the world on fire once again with his upcoming EP "Quentin", which is set to drop June 2018.
