Hip-hop rap artist Ohene (pronounced Ô-hen-?) brings to the game what no other emcee does: the total package. As gifted a freestyler as he is a writer, Ohene can as easily please a crowd with an “off the dome” battle rhyme as he can with a number from his repartee. His music reaches all.

Already a phenomenon in Ghana, The Begotten Son of Rhyme has returned to the United States to claim his rightful spot among hip-hop’s elite. The response was immediate. Critics, fans, and fellow artists all stand in awe of his lyrical prowess.

So respected for this gift, he now teaches a course at Temple University entitled The Art of Rap: How to Emcee.

After dropping the This Is NOT My Album! mix CD, a compilation of previously recorded material, self-released due to demand, and earning a Lyricist of the Year nomination from Philly Hip-Hop.com, Ohene has finally given the world his long awaited official debut, The Rapademics. Singles It Is “O” and 3rd Bar Invention are currently playing on independent and college radio stations across the country.

Also look for "Inner City Soul," the follow-up to "The Rapademics," due out later this year.

  My nFluent - (The people, places and things that influences Ohene 's style)

  Canibus, Bob Marley, KRS-One, Van Gogh

  Experience - (past venues, performances, recognition, ect.)

  Played in venues throughout the US, including Philadelphia, Birmingham, New York, and Atlanta, to name a few. Featured in famous rap and hip-hop publication Murder Dog Magazine, Philadelphia Weekly, Philly Hip-Hop.com, Music for America.com, and more.


  Signed Artist: No      Management: Yes, but has the skillz and the experience and the lyrical flow to challenge most of the signed artists out today.
