How’s this for an introduction? Before today, I had never heard of Oswin Benjamin, but his appearance on Sway in the Morning should have a lot more people paying attention. We’ll see if his raw talent translates into good music. For now, check him out above, starting at the 5:20 mark.

The story behind his Sway in the Morning appearance, from Oswin’s manager:

Oswin got the email at 1 a.m. Friday morning that Sway in the Morning producers needed a last-minute replacement MC for the Friday Cypher segment of the show at 8 a.m. Since he was a last-minute add-on, Sway had no idea who he was or what he was doing there when he showed up, but gave him the opportunity to be a part of the cypher with veteran battle rappers DNA and Kay Shine.

As you can see above, he didn’t disappoint.
