Poughkeepsie-born, New York-based emcee El Gant has carved out a name for himself for his witty and often rapid-fire delivery — and for being one third of the hip-hop group Jamo Gang, which also features Ras Kass and J57.
With his long-awaited solo debut, O.S.L.O., the Poughkeepsie-born, NYC-based emcee boldly steps into the limelight as a solo artist. The album features production from the legendary DJ Premier, Marco Polo and the aforementioned J57 and collaborations with Atmosphere‘s Slug and Slipknot’s Sid Wilson, Jamo Gang bandmate Ras Kass, Killah Priest, Planet Asia, King Magnetic and more.
O.S.L.O.‘s latest single, the DJ Premier-produced “Leave It Alone” pairs the Poughkeepsie-born, NYC-based emcee’s rapid-fire witty word play and dexterous wordplay with a the producer’s world renowned tweeter and woofer rattling boom bap, a menacing bass line, twinkling keys and a soulfully delivered vocal hook. Simply put, it’s an anachronistic banger; it sounds as though it could have been released in 1995, 2005 — or today.
