Oh No f/ Jose James, Phife Dawg – ‘Dues N Don’ts’ | New Music

Just in case you were thinking of giving Oh No‘s new LP OhNoMite a pass (shame on you), the underground hip-hop stalwart offers the “Dues N Don’ts” cut for your streaming pleasure. The album may have locked down features from MF DOOM, The Alchemist, Rapper Big Pooh and plenty more acclaimed rap names, but two contributions in particular struck that lyrical note just right: Jose James and A Tribe Called Quest‘s Phife Dawg.

Blending dexterous lyricism, mastered sampling (of the 1975 blaxploitation film Dolemite in this case) and a perfect balance between grit and soul, hip-hop really doesn’t get any better than this.

Take notes from “Dues N Don’ts” below and add Oh No’s OhNoMite to your collection via the iTunes or Stones Throw store.
