Ohmega Watts The Find
- Words: Patrick Sisson
- Label: Ubiquity
Portland producer and rapper Ohmega Watts bears an uncanny resemblance to Dave Chappelle. It‘s oddly appropriate, because Watts‘ earthy, kickin-it-on-the-corner cuts would stand up well alongside the other music the comedian features on his hit show. On his debut The Find, Watts shows off his range, creating dusty RJD2 jams, spacey neo-soul swirls, and Jurassic 5 funk while working with a varied group of nearly 20 guest MCs. The fact that, for the most part, he effectively plays to the strengths of that many rappers underlines his versatility and skill.
