    Oh No is certainly a capable lyricist but the tracks on Ohnomite tend to work best when he lets his guest artist take the foreground.

    Here, he has crafted them into something startlingly new, although that '70s spirit of pimp-hand-up-top, bell-bottoms-down-below is intact the whole way.

    If you even have the least inkling of how funky giving Oh No "unlimited access" to the archives of Rudy Ray Moore would be, I think you realize how enjoyable it would be to let him loop these beats and cherry pick his favorite emcees to flow over them.

    Oh No's beats run gritty, grainy and hard from start to finish, with tough rhythms and an expansive array of aggressive sonics darting in and out of each cut, adding much expressive flair to the beatsmith's heartbeat-raising, all-business attacks.

    Ohnomite is another solid addition to a growing, consistent discography.

    On his strongest album yet, Jackson Jr deconstructs the back catalogue of comedian/musician Rudy Ray Moore, star of blaxploitation movie Dolemite. [Sep 2012, p.106]

    There's a consistent intensity and power in Oh No's production.

    Although the album "Ohnomite" there are contained more than twenty pieces, but the CD is kept within an hour. Here are both short inderludium songs, less than 2 minutes, as well as full-length hip hop productions. Great part of bacground samples was taken from the Rudy Ray Moore's movies - and what's need to be added, was made ??with a elan, so that the compositions are not boring pieces. Very solid proposal.

    Oh No's lyrics are definitely on-point, but some guest features are disappointed (at least for me). Production is also on-point... Good album - nothin' extra, but absolutely great is hear such a real hip-hop soundin' album in this skinny jeans era! Expand
