The muses of La Musa: Noname

Despite her stage name, Noname, 27–year–old Fatimah Warner is anyone but someone you should ignore. Rather, her stage name identifies her as a rejection of mass–produced modern hip–hop—Noname is one of the few rappers releasing music independently, bound to no contract or label. Growing up in Chicago, her rap is rooted in the city’s slam poetry and open mic scene which dominated her childhood. Noname has cemented herself as a rapper who weaves together jazz and neo–soul beats with an elaborately rhymed flow.

While most modern hip–hop is marked by minimalism and repetition, on Room 25, her new album, Noname isn’t afraid to craft her songs with generosity, resulting in the best project in her career so far. Tonight in concert at Razzmatazz.
