Rap-Up TV: Om’Mas Keith Talks Earl Sweatshirt, Azealia Banks Albums

Fresh off his Grammy win for Frank Ocean’s channel ORANGE, singer-songwriter-producer Om’Mas Keith is setting his sights on two of hip-hop’s most-buzzed-about newcomers, Earl Sweatshirt and Azealia Banks.

The Queens-bred Keith could hardly contain his excitement when speaking about the Odd Future rapper’s upcoming album Doris.

“Earl’s album is very special, very creative,” Om’Mas told Rap-Up TV. “There are some very special people on that, and I think Earl is definitely a contender for Best Rap Album of the year next year for sure. I see Earl with Best Rap Album. I see Earl with Best Rap/Sung Collaboration. I definitely see him with a slew of acknowledgements next year.”

He has also been in the studio with Azealia Banks for her debut Broke With Expensive Taste. “I was very pleased to find out that she was an amazing artist, an artist’s artist,” he said. “The stuff that I worked on is very refreshing and creative.”

Om’Mas has been making noise with his own album City Pulse, which be can streamed on SoundCloud.
