Multicultural experimental artist and rapper, Genesis Owusu, made his return toward the backend of August. After dropping his debut album, Smiling with No Teeth, back in 2021, he took a two-year gap in between. If you have checked out the 25-year-old multi-talented artist's music before, it has a personality that you are not going to find anywhere else. When he came back with STRUGGLER, it brought something to the table that not many artists would attempt to pull off.
His left-field idea was to make a concept album based on a novel. That information was provided by Genius. However, it was not some normal book. Owusu drew inspiration from absurdist literature and Franz Kafka’s, The Metamorphosis, which describes the life of a cockroach in a similar vein. It was a fantastic listen and now he is looking to add to it.

The path of the roach, walk of humanity
Alleviating my mind of this sanity
Live like a struggler, walk like a struggler
Carrying hope make me feel like a smuggler
What a fatality
Tryna keep my head up, but I'm battling gravity, uh
