Here we have Oh No’s brand new album ‘Ohnomite’ Oh No is a dope beat maker and lyricist who also happens to be Madlibs brother, so you know they’ve got raw talent in the bloodline!
Oh No was given access to the Rudy Ray Moore/ Dolemite audio archives and let loose to chop, slice, sample and have his wicked way with whatever sounds he could get his hands on. This has resulted in a 19 track masterpiece of audio dopeness. As expected, Oh No has killed the production on this, bringing more rawness than the half cooked sausages I made and ate last night and am suffering from today.
As well as dropping a ton of nice verses over his own beats, Oh No has brought in an amazing lineup of guest appearances that will excite any hiphop fan, new or old. The album features some massive names including Erick Sermon, Phife Dawg, Sticky Fingaz, MF DOOM, Chino XL, The Alchemist, Evidence, Guilty Simpson, Rapper Pooh, Roc Marciano, Frank Nitt, Roc C and even more. If that lineup doesn’t impress you or any other hiphop head then I have no idea what will……
There is a nice range of beats on this LP, if you are familiar with the latest Gangrene album by Oh No and the Alchemist then you will like this, a fair few of the tracks bring that kind of psychadelic funk that is present on the Gangrene album but that is not all, there are some nice chilled beats, mainly on the track ‘Let’s Roll’ which features Damani and the track ‘You Don’t Know Me’ is an absolute headbanger which would give Mosh and Thrasher (WWF reference) a run for their money
19 tracks deep, a few nice interludes, sick artwork, dope production all round and a fuck load of good rapping. What more do you want
Ohnomite is being released in the UK in MP3 format on the 5th June and in CD format on 11th June so be sure to pick it up
