The Up-Turn

Outside of Lecs Luther and ZU all the hip-hop I’ve listened to this year has come from American rappers.  Onoe Caponoe was a pretty big shock when I heard his thick English accent rhyme over the psychedelic beats of his music.  I haven’t listened to a rapper with this much personality in his diction since Dizzee Rascal and from the beats he chooses I’m liking Onoe much more.  The production is definitely a huge strength of his album Central Control.  As expected, not every one of the 19 tracks is stunning, however, Onoe has more than enough strength to deserve some recognition.  Onoe also impresses as a lyricist, taking on a lot of abstract themes including a funky mouse and of course marijuana.  Stream and download Central Control below…
