EDITORS’ NOTES

The Tokyo-born, Berkeley-bred rapper’s witty, syncopated quick-fire delivery, ear for beats and soulful styling has fuelled a three-decade career. An instantly recognisable ‘80s rap funk bassline on "Lady Don't Tek No" shows his fun side (Macklemore owes him a debt), while the catchy "I Changed My Mind" pitches a raw vocal over scratchy funk for the EDM generation. Elsewhere, "I'm Just Raw" gives a dollop of Dan the Automator's distinctive short burst rap on a bouncy heavy base, and "Callin' Out" delivers the squelchy seductive '70s sound.
