Lightheaded Wrong Way
- Words: Tomas Palermo
- Label: Tres
"Relax, kick back, you had a long day we‘re taking you everywhere except the wrong way," relays this animated Portland, OR based trio on the title track of their sophomore album. MCs Braille, Othello, and MC/beatsmith Ohmega Watts encourage listeners to unwind to their upbeat hip-hop, which readily inspires head nodding, finger popping and, on occasion, floor rocking (see the pulsating, b-boy-friendly cut "In The Building"). With their pleasing rhythm and uplifting raps, Lightheaded does a commendable job in ensuring that each of their listeners has a good day.
