HipHopDX Premiere: Famed author Helen Keller, who was famously deaf and blind until she died in 1968, has inspired Otis Clapp’s latest single, “Helen Keller,” which revolves around the concept of feeling invisible.
“‘I suppose it’s a reference to my music falling on ‘deaf ears,'” the Queens, New York native tells HipHopDX. “Or even people being blind to what I’m doing. Summed up with a spoken word-esque third verse that basically tells listeners to be who you are unapologetically, but to never lose your soul while doing it.”
The song serves as the title track from Clapp’s forthcoming EP, however, he also plans on releasing two other projects before the year is over. Check out the single above.
