The Rapper Formally Known As.....
No Condom…makes you think unprotected, pregnancy, infection, or as Charleston, SC native Jon Oh! would say “RaW!” This rap-alternative artist created a campaign around the concept that infected the urban genre with a fresh, unique sound. The campaign was capped off with his debut EP, Pre-Ejaculation: The Mixtape, which made a favorable impression on Dat Piff, and got Mr. No Condom labeled as an ‘Artist to Watch For’. Coming off of his 1st wave of success Jon Oh! Is back with his follow up BlackClockWork; and the title gives you a just idea of how intriguing the album will be. With beats orchestrated by producers such as Rick Flare (Paul Wall, YukMouth, Glasses Malone), along with musicians from all over the world & woven with elements from every musical genre, the album is sure to be one big adventure. With a few underground hits such as “Dance Party” leading the way!
Mr. No Condom began his infection mid 2012 after a hilarious three part musical satire he entitled “Adventure Time with Mr. No Condom”. The musical followed our star around town as engaging in hijinks, while narrating them! Hip-hop and trip hop fans alike were drawn to the enthusiastic newbie with his eccentric style, and his preaching’s of change & motivation. With ‘BCW’ he promises to pick up on the same principles, but from darker levels, as he puts his spin on the 1970’s cult classic “A Clockwork Orange”. Jon Oh tells the tale of a drug kingpin’s son who plummets from glory and has to walk the road less traveled back to glory and success.
“Self-growth and transformation is a process that we all must and should go through. I figure who better to tell that story than a former street urchin”
Since the announcement of BCW and the release of his underground trip hop hit Dance Party, Jon Oh has gone into isolation or a “cocoon” as he would call it. A quaint, country-side studio miles away from civilization, where he plans to stay until the album is finished in early 2014. He then plans to emerge immediately going on a ten city promotional tour which is said to include cities such as Atlanta, Houston, and Miami. With past appearances and interviews in prominent magazines such as TRUE, H.Y.P.E., and XXL to name a few, underground hip-hop fans are eager to see what Mr. No Condom has under sleeves; especially after oozing viral hits Dance Party, and I Almost Got Away With It, which is gaining lots of love in the south after being chopped and screwed by OVO Chopstar DJ, Slim K!
“With BCW I wanna create a ‘rest-stop’ for people who travel that path less traveled, who just need a little water to quench their thirst, or the right directions. In order for me to do that though, I have to be able to communicate with/relate to lots of people which is why my album seems to have so many musical extremes”.
Things seem to be working together perfectly though as Jon Oh gets more and more diverse fans everyday...you possibly one of them! To keep up with Jon Oh, and his “Transformation” visit his website:
