Introducing new artist kJ Osama from the budding city of Charlotte, N.C. He just started rapping one year ago, but the freestyles he’s dropping have the streets buzzing like a new Drake single!
kJ always loved music and messed around with writing raps here and there but he had serious plans to obtain a degree and work in the field of management and technology. That was until the day that he visited the studio. “The first time I went to the studio I was hooked! I felt my creative juices start flowing and it just felt right.”
kJ’s sound in a nutshell is Charlotte meets New Orleans. He has the ability to rap in different tones over different types of beats. “I’m not trying to sound like any other artist and I set my own trends. I actually get motivated when I see other artists and how talented they are. It makes me strive to become even greater.”
His favorite artists are N.B.A. YoungBoy, the late Pop Smoke, Stunna4Vegas, Lil Baby, Fivio Foreign and Quando Rondo. “In my opinion, the current state of Hip-Hop could be better. There isn’t enough variety. A lot of the beats sound the same and the raps sound similar too. I want to stand out and create my own sound.”
He credits his family and management for keeping him inspired. “Music is a big part of my family. My cousins rapped too, so I grew up watching them make music and perform at different venues. They support me 100% and push me to follow my dreams. I also have the best manager, Von Don. He has a lot of experience in the industry and he believes in me. That forces me to work even harder.”
kJ Osama is in the process of completing his first project titled, “9inety1Eighteen“, scheduled to drop in late 2020. “I’m ready to show the world what I can do behind the mic, bring success to my town and get my family out of the hood. And I want my music to influence other young rappers and young people to show them that they can be anything they want to be in this life.”
