On his latest full-length outing, the deep-voiced Omni maintains a good balance of street level sensibility, humor and introspection, like the hip-hop of his LA counterparts Freestyle Fellowship and the Living Legends. Thus, it‘s only fitting that Omni enlists Mikah Nine of the Fellowship and Luckyiam.psc of the Legends to help keep the LA sound prevalent. While Omni‘s blunted flows and his slow-rolling beats are consistent and familiar sounding, they rarely give lasting impressions like the tracks of his guests. Nonetheless, if you‘re down with the LA underground, then Ballyhoo is worth a spin.
