GMAD introduced us to this artist in early August with Olu’s Boy Meets World mixtape, I heard some of it, thought it was decent but wanted to hear more. I don’t usually trust just one mixtape or just one song by an artist, unless it is something I just really love.
Olu’s music has been quoted as having “Chiddy-esque instrumentals”; when I heard that, I had to download all of his stuff. He’s only 18-years old and his best songs have been samples & remixes of some awesome songs, so I think when he starts producing more original material, then we will see Olu’s music get taken to the next level.
However this week, Cleveland-born rapper Olu (his real name is Olutobi Kareem) released his second mixtape, Preview 2, and now I’m a huge fan of his music.
Below I have provided links to download Olu’s last three mixtapes. I love that he samples artists ranging from Passion Pit and Matt & Kim to bigger artists like Big Boi, Justin Timberlake and Kid Cudi.
His last two mixtapes, Preview 2 and Boy Meets World, are his best, while Preview is raw but still worth listening to.
Also listen and download “Better Bud”, one of my favorites that’s not Olu’s mixtapes.
