There’s a reason why Seun Otukpe, Lamp Mode Recording’s first international hip-hop artist, bears his soul so much in his music, which has been labeled as “emo rap.” S.O. knows he’s not the only person that has experienced pain, and he wants to show others how to find comfort in Christ during the storms of life.

“That’s what I want my music to be,” S.O. said. “I want my music to be the music that comforts those in affliction, that brings joy to people, that encourages the heart, that encourages the soul.”
