Product Details


Onry Ozzborn has been one of the key voices of Seattle Hip Hop over the last decade. Perhaps best known as one half of Rhymesayers Entertainment duo Grayskul and more recently for being the vocalist of Fake Four psych-pop-hoppers Dark Time Sunshine. Over the years Onry has collaborated and toured with everyone from Atmosphere and Eyedea to Aesop Rock and Cage.

With his latest (and supposedly final) solo release "Hold On For Dear Life" Fake Four presents a hard hitting yet curiously poppy album of diverse beats and unique thoughts from a truly original voice in hip hop. Although his children Violet and Nicholas Sire (whose photos grace the album artwork) seem to be the guiding light of inspiration on this album, Ozzborn's particular brand of surrealism and twists on boom bap standards shine through on these 16 tracks. With guests vocalists such as Sapient, Xperience and Reva DeVito providing singing counterpoints to Ozzborn's harder sounding raps the album takes on a more melodic sound than most straight ahead hip hop records.

The beats on "Hold On For Dear Life" are also a diverse bag of sounds contributed largely by Oldominion crew mainstays such as Smoke and Taco Neck along with a gorgeous finale by Dark Time Sunshine producer Zavala. Some of the stylistic differences of these songs are going to take listeners by surprise but for the most part this is just classic Onry Ozzborn material - real, raw, a bit strange but all honest.

Comment: Since 2009, Onry has dropped Believeyoume, Graymaker, Cornucopia, Vessel, No Hoax, and Hold On For Dear Life - all with great reviews. In addition, Onry tours, features on other MC's albums, and is working on Grayskul's new album Zenith. Its no wonder why Onry has said this will be has last album, he is overworked. As a result of being overworked, Hold On To Dear Life isn't on the same level as previously released albums. But when compared to new releases from other MCs, Hold On For Dear Life stands out among the best. FOUR STARS!!

Comment: another great album from the Oz, I agree that it's not of Dark Time Sunshine caliber... but really, what is... DTS is probably the best new hip hop out there... regardless HOFDL is bangin... to the anonymous douche who said "pick a lane"... obviously you don't remotely understand Onry, who constantly re-invents himself and/or inhabits different personas on each project, while still staying mad consistent i.m.o... keep listening to your one dimensional emcees douche... onry inhabits multiple dimensions at once and his tunes are audible art, it doesn't just immediately sink in like bullshit pop music candy that you may dig for a sec and then immediately forget... you gotta let it simma simma son...
