Apparently re-imagining runs in the family. On the heels of his older brother Madlib’s recent reworking of the classic Madvillainy album, Oh No has gone and put a new spin on his debut album, The Disrupt. On My Way finds the Oxnard rapper laying his original rhymes over new beats assembled entirely from samples dug out of the Now-Again Records catalog. Mining classic funk and soul cuts, Oh No’s beatmaking prowess has come a long way since 2004, and his raps sound surprisingly fresh over the same kinds of cut-and-paste beats that made his brother famous. This may only be a must-listen for hardcore fans and beat junkies, but Oh No is on the way up.
