Baraka Noel

Here's my funny story: 2 weeks ago, in my weekly downloading spree, I downloaded some tracks by a guy named Baraka Noel and began listening to them only to discover that this rapper I'd never heard of was essentially the long-lost brother of Immortal Technique. The lyrics alone, provocative, angry, and thoughtful, were worthy of the comparison. Meanwhile, this unknown rap artist had somewhat sophisticated instrumental backing - a lilting violin in one track and a bright brass section in another. Who was this guy?
I ran a google search (the solution to all my problems) only to discover that this amazing rapper was virtually unknown and... an Oberlin student. I swell with school pride.

    I know! He's brilliant. I met him on an airplane going home for break a couple of years ago. (I am also an Obie, '07.)

    i may not be an Obie, but I have pride in this too...considering i'm one of the 3 emcees on the Citizens of Sleep album.
