Whether he's working as a solo beatmaker or as one-half of Gangrene with the Alchemist, Oh No's projects are fizzy delights of zany samples and grizzled freestyle raps. He's not as visionary as his brother Madlib, but he's less eccentric, too. The premise behind Ohnomite is that it's built around comedian Dolemite's catalog - much as 2006's Exodus Into Unheard Rhythms used Galt MacDermot as a source. It's a good excuse for him and friends like Guilty Simpson, MF Doom, Roc Marciano and others to chop up madcap sounds like "3 Dollars," "Real Serious" and "Ohnomite Jazz."
