Producer *wanobi just dropped his debut rap mixtape today–check out EPISODE III now
While the pot-consuming music industry is busy for their favorite holiday, Columbus, GA beatsmith *wanobi decided to drop his debut rap project before the month of April comes to a close, under the moniker Nobi. Talented 21 year-old English major presents his debut mixtape “with a marijuana cloud floating” through each record.
Featured as one of Freelancer Magazine’s Artist of the Month, EPISODE III is a 10-track mixtape which includes the lead single “Daaaaaylite”–being the Farrwood Cove native’s most popular song on his SoundCloud, with over 6,500 plays–which was accompanied with visuals soon after. Though not known for rapping, *wanobi goes out in proving his microphone skills are just as dynamic as his production.
Additional help comes from producers DEVIN MALEK (That’s $5) , notmattbrown (Chops) and Yöuth (2Day), as well as standout verses from rappers Genius Troy (The III *SLABS CUT) and TetsuoHVZE (BLEZZED). His offbeat and sometimes sluggish delivery reveals that he has more substance than strains in the booth, and time will only determine if the flashes of lyricism and wordplay will transcend in his future works.
This tape is interesting, and highly creative. Listen to EPISODE III today, available on SoundCloud and Bandcamp. Keep updated with Nobi (or *wanobi) on Twitter, and follow him on Soundcloud to make sure you don’t miss out on any gems.
