Everybody knows the Wu-Tang classic “C.R.E.A.M” (Cash Rules Everything Around Me). NYC indie hip-hop stalwart Otis Clapp flips the song in his own way with “CREAM” (Cash Ruins Everything Around Me).
An incredibly skilled emcee, Otis Clapp is a rapper who impresses other rappers, and, in turn, impresses audiences. He's also consistently true to himself, as he notes in the song, “I don’t follow trends / I barely follow friends.”
As an aside, being a Mets fan, I went nuts for the line, “Hope when I die that I’m buried in a Mets hat.”
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
