Irish Hip-Hop artist OjoTheKidd has released his brand new single “B*TCH” through Rough Bones / Canvas Distribution.
Fondly referred to as ‘OTK’, the Irish rap sensation delivers this attention grabbing follow up to his debut tracks “Rack it up” and “Uno” which saw support from Spofity’s ‘RapIE’, ‘TheNewÉire’ playlist amongst other, the latter of which also saw support from Youtube/UK urban music influencers LinkUP TV.
On “B*TCH“, OTK flexes his rap skills by blending both nu school trap and classic Hip Hop flows as he journals a come-up story from humbler beginnings and his focus on dominating the hiphop game.
The track opens with his unmistakable vocal tone and takes off as the thumping 808s and sub-bass take over. Confident and sultry background synths and hooky refrains are just a few of the production elements on this track courtesy of OjoTheKidd’s long-time collaborator, Dublin-based producer FlashTheDeliveryGuy.
“B*TCH” is as highly infectious as any offering from his counterparts across the pond like Migos, DaBabby or Roddy Rich though OTK’s flow hints influences of Hip Hop stars like Kendrick Lamar, J.Cole, Isaiah Rashaad and even Busta Rhymes when he spits rapid flows on this track.
“B*TCH” marks the third release from his highly anticipated EP due later this year.
20 year old Irish artist OjoTheKidd, also shares of Kenyan and Nigerian heritage.
Currently based in Dublin, he launched his career at the young age of 13 when he discovered he had a knack for writing rhymes and delivering quick, thought provoking rap verses.

His continued win of a record number of competitions led to some national press coverage by the age of 14 and solidifying his position as one of Ireland’s strongest MCs.
The following years saw him spotlight several notable festivals including Longitude, body and soul as well as hone his craft listening to and being influenced by a choice few rap greats including Kendrick Lamar, Isaiah Rashaad and School boy Q, the later of whom he had the opportunity to meet and open for as support artist.
He kicked off 2020 supporting Kanye West’s own protégé 070 Shake in a sold out show at The Button Factory to rave reviews and was also handpicked to open for UK superstar Deno at his Academy headline show.
Now returning to the mic readying for his first EP release, he is currently fine-tuning material in the studio for release 2021. Confident in his body of work, 2021 is as good a time as any to reintroduce himself to the world as OjoTheKidd.
