Oh No The Disrupt
- Words: Martin Turenne
- Label: Stones Throw
The two highest compliments you can pay Michael Jackson's debut are that his beats fall only somewhat short of his sibling's, and that his rhymes are way better-the first a mighty achievement, the second less so. Before we get to Michael (a.k.a. Oh No), let us note that his brother Otis (a.k.a. Madlib) herein outdoes himself, his six contributions suffused with so many dizzying feints as to render their digestion impossible before the end of, say, 2010. For his part, Oh No shows skills in spades, especially on "The Ride," which edges out Lil Flip's "Game Over" for the title of year's best Nintendo anthem. Yes, the Jackson family juggernaut is upon us, and we are pleased.
