Oseko – Stain [Audio]

Courtice, ON Oseko recently dropped his latest single release titled “Stain” off his latest project drop, Head Above Water.

Oseko comes in on a floaty vibed-out beat and hits us with some very introspective bars about coming of-age in the rap game. He’s still a young cat so he’s just starting to find his place: “Waking up and I’m 10 years to 30/ Hoping that my life will change/ Hoping someone hears me.” Check it out below.

Oseko - Stain [Audio] -

Oseko puts a voice to the confidence struggle that every MC on the come-up goes through: the fear of fading into the background with the other 543,765,324 rappers out there. He really just wants people to listen to his music.

And I feel that. Dude isn’t flexing off on us, or anything – he’s just asking us to take the time to listen to his music. The song wraps up as Oseko delivers his final line: “Hope music the magic/ That helps me f**king make it.”
