Niamaj The Vibe
- Words: Ross Hogg
- Label: Plug Label
Brooklyn native/Bay Area transplant Niamaj nails it with his cool, laid-back rhymes over warm, jazzy guitar loops and homegrown beats and scratches from producer/DJ/label head Kero One. On "The Vibe," his train of thought makes a nostalgic stop or two, but deftly avoids the dogmas that all too often plague underground hip-hop. "Yagotta" chronicles Niamaj's endless laundry list of life's must-dos, and the Raindrops remix features Kero's subtle Fender Rhodes work.
