GENESIS OWUSU Named To YouTube’s Foundry Class of 2022 + Lollapalooza Performance This Week

In the olden times, foundries were established to cast metals used for agriculture, construction and battle. These workshops are one of the pillars of ancient society, and history. Nowadays, while they still exist they have now taken a whole other meaning. Take for example a camp for individuals with the same passion working toward the same goal. In this instance, YouTube’s Foundry Class Of 2022 which includes emerging artists like Ghanaian- Australian Genesis Owusu.

Blessed with tremendous talent, musicality and charisma, he has taken over the stages that range from television and concert venues. All of which earned rave reviews and sold out tickets from every corner of the planet. Like a rocket zooming through space, he now gives us a stellar track called “GTFO”. A fire breathing track that exorcises your inner demons as well as those around you. Released July 19th via Ourness/ AWAL, it’s the perfect follow up to what he’s accomplished so far. As if he’s saying “time to take notice!”, and as an audience we’d be more than happy to oblige.

Genesis Owusu’s “GTFO”, is gritty and takes us back to a period where rap music was very expressive and carefully crafted. Every lines are thought of, and all the emotions are expertly placed like a well constructed structure. The best part is, it’s honest and relatable. Meaning, all of us regardless of culture and stature can extract a nugget we can apply to our own stories. Pretty breathtaking right? But that’s not it just yet because coupled with it is a music video that gives of paranormal vibrations. A contrast to the nitty gritty, and tough persona “GTFO” provides. The haunting is real, and it’s out to get you if you don’t “GTFO” pronto.
