Kazoo! #118
NOAH 23:
Since the early 2000s Guelph, Ontario’s Noah23 has been building up his reputation of being one of the strangest rappers in the galaxy. With his quick tongued raps, cultural reference infused stream of consciousness lyricism and a knack for writing gorgeous melodies, Noah has become well respected as one of the top independent Canadian rappers.

Over the years Noah has shared stages and songs with everyone from Clouddead and Sole of the original Anticon collective to Kool Keith, Constantines, Awol One, Eternia, Islands and Matisyahu. On his latest album “Fry Cook On Venus” Noah teams up with Fake Four producers such as Factor, Cars & Trains and Skyrider to make his poppiest and most concentrated effort to date. Guest Vocalists such as Liz Powell from the Saddle Creek band Land of Talk, Myka9, Sole, Awol One, Gregory Pepper, Ceschi and others also contribute to the record – helping to make one of the most intriguing hip hop listens of the new year.

“You already know. Anybody who has checked out my 2009 release ‘After Midnight’ should already understand the vibe i was going for. If you havent heard After Midnight, then allow me to elaborate. Midnight soul shit. Certain sounds resonate more after dark, than before dark. something about the night skies, the moon, the crickets. jazzy, smooth, vibin type music. As i always say, perfect is boring. Tracks are a bit lo fi and sloppy. but so is life. Take your jacket off, stay for a while. Grab your Rye and Coke. I tried to create an atmosphere that will set the mood right. Studying. Drinking. Smoking. Romance. Just do me a favor and play it at night. Shoutouts to Marv Won, Mr Brady, O-Phrap, Es, Solar-C, and Phillipe Edison for helping me realize the vision. Highest praises to the whole HW&W team. Ok. Less reading, more vibing. Enjoy.” – sona (eq)

This up and coming emcee has gained much attention in the last few years, since dedicating wholly to her passion – music. In this time, she has shared some of her country’s top stages with a wide range of hip-hop’s finest, including but not limited to, The Alkoholiks, Masta Ace, Jus Allah, Zaki Ibrahim, WildChild, DL Incognito, Grand Analog, MiC K!NG, & Lee Reed.
