He performs in English so not exactly like MC Boo but I would still recommend checking him out.
I have heard his voice for years guesting on some Jurassic 5 tracks, but never realized he was his own entity.
This was the album that got me hooked: https://open.spotify.com/album/2Aran...R3GAGrVyQgyXYQ
Yeah, he's dope! I very highly recommend his first group Latryx (Lyrics Born and Lateef). Their early work is really innovative and DJ Shadow did a good bit of production for them. They were part of a larger crew called "Quantum" that included another very dope group called "Blackalicious". Those early albums from that crew were insanely dope.
