OTM is the first rap act from California to produce a certified street anthem in 2022. The remix to their song “Cliff Hanger,” which hit more than a million views in less than three weeks, is nearly six minutes of scorched-earth bars and menacing quotables. It’s the last video Drakeo The Ruler shot before he passed and the song features one of his final recorded verses, where he presciently raps “tell God save a bed for me, coming soon,” over patient, eerie production.
Members BluePesos and Duffy are the latest Stinc Team-associated rappers to advance the nervous music narrative. OTM has released two full-length projects in the past two months, the first being their debut and the second being a tribute album titled “Long Live Drakeo,” where the pair honor their fallen hero by recording freestyles over his most iconic beats. The album is a loving send-up to the group’s biggest artistic influence and to the person who ultimately helped put them on.
