It’s been over 16 years since we’ve seen a new release from the North Carolina emcee Omniscence and we all know that a vast amount of 90’s emcees do not fare well after such a hiatus. But this record does not fall short. Debonair P provides a dope beatscape as usual, with that extra warm bass on the remix, and Omniscence picks up right where he left off in 96 with the dope punchlines. If you support vinyl then this is a no brainer purchase. And if you don’t have a turntable, you can cop the digital single, including instrumentals, in high quality at bandcamp here.
For a quick refresher, check out some of his older music here:

And check out this article about the rare promo tape only 1995 EP that preceded what was supposed to be the upcoming Raw Factor LP that never hit shelves. Here’s to hoping that Omniscence’s re-emergence will also bring the unreleased LP to the surface.
