LMNO P‘s & Q‘s
- Words: Patrick Sisson
- Label: Up Above
In this case, you can judge the rapper by the cover. LMNO, an acronym for Leave My Name Out, is the handle of LA rapper James Kelly, a member of the Visionaries crew. The name is precious, clever and tries a little to hard, much like the rapper does on his third solo album. Kelly has no problem with formulating deep thoughts on life and politics and spinning them into lyrics; he does it with aplomb. It‘s his occasionally chunky and dry delivery that spoils things. Even the solid production barely makes this album okay.
