NAPOLEON DA LEGEND & AMERIGO GAZAWAY: Oda Nobunaga

NAPOLEON DA LEGEND & AMERIGO GAZAWAY: Oda NobunagaHere’s Oda Nobunaga then. Heavens no, not the actual ‘demon daimyo’ of Sengoku-period Japan but the new single from Napoleon Da Legend & Amerigo Gazaway! Just as well, we don’t want anyone losing their heads, now do we? Having said that, if you’re partial to a bit of orientally-themed hip-hop (and who isn’t?) you might just metaphorically lose your head to this. A boom-bap beat featuring traditional Japanese stringed instruments and flute? Check. Sword sound samples? Check. Martial arts film dialogue? Check. Lyrical science delivered in gravelly bars? Check. Cop this and you too could be ‘Zen-like hopping in a Benz with old friends, bumping Stevie Wonder reminiscing on …[your]…old sins’!
