San Diego emcee Obnoxious has officially released his brand new single “Honor Roll” produced by Evidence. The track is the 6th & latest single from Obnoxious’ forthcoming Suburban Noize Records debut Sic Audio coming later this year. Released in tandem with the Ev produced single across platforms, Obnoxious has dropped the video for “Honor Roll”. The music video was shot & directed by King Zabb & provides the perfect backdrop to the angelic vocals & ominous organ that powers Ev’s beat. The video showcases Obnoxious dark complex rhymes, as the San Diego emcee levels up his bars to match the top-notch production.
“Blessed to link up with one of the greatest & have Evidence produce my new single “Honor Roll”. I grew up listening to Evidence & he’s one of my all-time favorite producers, so working with him was an amazing opportunity,” commented Obnoxious. “From the moment he sent me the beat & I laid down my verse, he was breaking everything down on a whole different level. The original beat was just the skeleton & after I laid down the vocals, he then went to work meticulously producing the beat to the vocal tracks before sending detailed notes on the mix & master. In an era of hip-hop where everyone just sends files back & forth slapping things together, Evidence’s attention to detail, creativity & the way he deconstructs the music make him one of the greatest. He truly elevated the song & pushed me to level up.”
Since signing with Suburban Noize, Obnoxious has been on a steady rise through the ranks. After releasing a series of solo singles like “Killshot” as well we “Superstitious” & “Starstruck”, Obnoxious wordplay & rhymes have become razor-sharp, reflecting a chaotic musical juxtaposition of grimy street life mixed with a true hip-hop lyricism that will make your neck snap.
