Be on the look out for the 3rd album to drop by Omni. The album "BALLYHOO" drops Jan 24th 2006!!!
You donít want to miss out on this Los Angeles nativeís third release. Omni blends all of his influences with his distinctive baritone, Cali twang, and a universal, wide-lens outlook on life to create a sound perfectly befitting of his name. Equal parts street and lyrical, b-boy and conscious, Omnis enjoys a reputation as real hip-hops best-kept secret among those in the know.
Ballyhoo is the third album from Los Angeles emcee Omni. It is slated for a January 24th release on LA-based indie imprint Ariel Records (www.arielrecords.com
) with distribution through Kajmere Music (www.ksdmusic.com)
. A core member of the infamous Los Angeles hip-hop crew Gershwin BLX Omni has put in the work of emcees twice his age, dropping albums independently across the world purely off the sweat of his brow, touring absolutely non-stop, and devoting his life to the pen and the microphone. Ballyhoo is an audio celebration of the worlds of experience he has gained over the course of his five-year-plus career, and his official initiation alongside the West Coast heavyweights that preceded him. Mikah Nine of the incomparable Freestyle Fellowship blesses the opening track Back At It, while Fatlip, long-lost star member of the original Pharcyde, returns from the dead for Feel How I Feel. Wildchild of Lootpack fame slides through for the steamy Daily Hustle, and Luckyiam.psc of the Living Legends lays a slippery sixteen over Trademark. BLX members Sklim Milx and Molmaniak check in for the loping Coca-Cola, Ali Abnormal and Universal hover over the menacing Mind Of A Madman, Vinyl Junkies affiliate Pudge lends some wisdom to Never, and up-and-coming LA producer Earganic ties the whole package up with a litany of beats that manage to be raw and polished at the same time. Its the passing of the West Coast torch old to the new, and Ballyhoo is the record at the epicenter of that transition.
