Making his mark on the Australian music scene, Genesis Owusu is continually delivering his own ever-changing and unique style of hip-hop that showcases both his artistic versatility and poetic approach.

In 2015, Owusu was a top 5 finalist in the Triple J Unearthed High competition; now at age 19, the Canberra rapper has already performed explosive live sets at Groovin’ The Moo, Spilt Milk and St. Jerome’s Laneway. 

Genesis Owusu’s notoriety is continually growing, gaining nods from VICE, i-D Magazine, Oyster Magazine, Thank Guard, Pilerats, Tonedeaf, LNWY, AUD’$, Earmilk, FBi Radio and Triple J, becoming Triple J Unearthed’s feature artist in January/February of 2017.

Noting a long list of influences on his including Jimi Hendrix, Frank Ocean, Miles Davis, Wu-Tang Clan and Kanye West, Genesis Owusu takes inspiration from an expansive range of sources to create laid back, jazz-infused-jams, and experimental genre-bending hardcore hip-hop, which was showcased in his debut 2017 release, “CARDRIVE EP”. Owusu now continues his tradition of progressiveness, boasting collaborations with members of the Grammy-nominated band Hiatus Kaiyote.
His “Sideways” single, produced by Simon Mavin and Perrin Moss of Hiatus Kaiyote, was added to Triple J’s high rotation after director Richard Kingsmill awarded the track 4-and-a-half stars out of 5. The single premiered on Okayplayer and since then, garnered international attention from websites such as The FADER and C-Heads. The music video for Sideways was premiered on Noisey and was featured on Australian music program, Rage.

Owusu’s singles “Drive Slow” and “Sideways” were among a selected few in Spotify playlists such as Mellow Styles, Beats n’ Bars, The triple j Hitlist, and The FADER’s Songs You Need In Your Life. This earned the two singles respectively over 100,000 plays each.

Owusu was also nominated for two National Live Music Awards; Hip Hop Live Act of the Year, and ACT Live Act of the Year with his duo, The Ansah Brothers.
