Mantra is one of Australia’s most popular rappers. He is an Obese Records alumni with two albums under his belt, an outstanding amount of airplay and the kind of respect that earned him the label ‘your favourite rapper’s favourite rapper’. His first album, 2010’s Power Of The Spoken was heavily requested on radio and found it’s way into the coveted triple j Feature Album spot. In 2011 Mantra released his second album, Speaking Volumes featuring guest verses from Promoe, Drapht, Urthboy and Illy. The first single ‘Got Me Wrong’ became triple j’s most requested song the week of its release. Back in 2013 with a new single and label, Mantra has signed with Ten To Two Records and dropped his first song for the label, ‘Loudmouth’.
