New Hip Hop - Ohene

I listen to a ton of new hip hop. Finding a fresh new voice that I want to keep on loop is extremely rare.

That's Ohene, who I found on He was their top download, so I figured I would give him a listen.

Stupid Minded is my favorite track. The track opens with what sounds like an old soul vinyl record, complete with needle hiss and scratches. His flow reminds me a bit of Jay-Z (though I hate playing that game). His flow is playful dancing across the music. The track has a tinkly piano, a drum beat, and a horn section interspersed with the hissy soul sample. has two other free downloads available for 3rd Bar Invention and Hello Stranger.

Buy it on or iTunes.
