Listen: LoDeck, “No Rims”

Post Author:

LoDeck rises from the soil once again.

LoDeck's debut EP Bash It came out when I was still in high school, but I recall loving his grimy, paranoid style. His bugged-out voice made “Stethoscope” on the Atoms Family compilation Euphony an instant stand-out.

Like many super-underground heads in the early 2000s, I abandoned the little men of the rap business once Jay-Z decided to become King of New York, once Kanye West started speaking to college dropouts and The Clipse re-introduced everyone to coca.

Seven years later, LoDeck is still making the same grimy New York rap. Strange how he sounded abstract in 2001, has changed nothing about his style since and sounds like a down and out street emcee in 2008.

“No Rims” is the first single from LoDeck's collaborative album with Omega One on production. The record features Jak Progresso, C-Rayz Walz and Invizzibl Men.
