Mp3: Nosaprise's "Grown Folks Music"
Here's the title track of London/Houston underground MC/guitarist Nosaprise's CD, which will be released on Speakerboxx night at the Mink on April 27.
You can’t go wrong with “I Was Made to Love Her,” one of the most infectious singles in American history. It provides a good balmy backdrop for Nosa’s crisp, almost metallic flow. I heard him perform this at one of Shady Tavern’s Secret Saturday shows a few weeks back, and it sounded no less like a hit in that setting than it does here. Love the nod to John Denver halfway through. The only thing that could make it better would be a bridge – the verses and chorus are great, but they start to wear out their welcome towards the end.
