Included recently in the Scottish Sun’s “Ones to Watch” list of 2011, Kobi Onyame, (b. Kwame Barfour-Osei) is a Ghanaian/UK hip-hop producer and artist, who draws his influences from the likes of Jay-Z, Kanye West, and Talib Kweli.  His new album “Green Green Grasses” shows off the multicultural influences he has developed over the years as a result of his dual nationalities and American hip-hop influence. The album’s title track fuses highlife guitars with modern day hip-hop rhythms and features fellow Ghanaian artist M3nsa.  Onyame sounds may sound like fellow UK rapper Dizzee Rascal, but his beats have more of a welcome familiarity to them while also incorporating hints of his Ghanaian roots.  Take a listen to the title track “Green Green Grasses” below, and get the album off iTunes here.
