Noname - Telefone
If you've listened to any Chance the Rapper projects since his Acid Rap tape, then you've definitely heard some bars from this talented Chicagoan. Telefone is the world's official introduction to Noname, the female MC who we have heard go bar for bar with arguably one of the biggest stars in the game today.
Noname delivers a unique style that truly doesn't sound like anyone else in the game. She is a poet by trade, and it definitely shows through her music. Her cadence is reminiscent of a spoken word performance at Busboys and Poets (shameless plug for my favorite restaurant). The lyrical content is inherently thoughtful and infused with deep metaphors. Mix all of that with some soulful crooning on the hooks and laidback instrumentals, the outcome is fantastic. Don't take my word for it, though, take a listen and tell us what you think in the comment section below.
