Audio: Kobi Onyame Rolls In The Green Green Grasses

Listen to UK rapper Kobi Onyame's "Green Green Grasses" featuring M3nsa.

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 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.
