Rapper and producer Brandon Katou (aka OMSB) is an artist that, while humble, exhibits a sense of pride in his work atypical of Japanese artists. In recent interviews he’s done for his new album, he’s compared himself to big-name acts like Kendrick Lamar and Kanye West, remarking that his work is up to par with theirs.

“It’s not that I think I can do the same things they do,” Katou clarifies for me. “But I believe that I’m making stuff that they can’t either, and it’s equally strong in its own way.”
