The melodic rhymes of Oso Negro are not easily compared to many other hip-hop outfits out there today. Oso Negro focuses on an array of topics varying from politics to inspiration. The beats are constructed of drum machines, synth, looping and various other digital tools that provide a complementary backbone to Oso Negro’s lyrics. He’ll be performing at The Reef on Thursday, which is bursting with fantastic hip-hop talent all night long alongside the likes of B. Dolan and Sage Francis, and Oso’s side project gLORIOUS pOP.
