Naeem Oba should already be on your radar. But just in case he isn't, feel free to get up to speed on the Minneapolis-bred MC by reading the Q&A we posted with him and brikAbrak this past December. Dude is deep. Real deep. Right now, he's working on an album based on 1984, George Orwell's prescient novel from 1949. If you prefer hip-hop that scratches the grey matter as much as it makes your head nod, check out "Julia" after the jump, and then download it on iTunes. It's the first track from Naeem Oba's forthcoming album, Unorthodox, recorded at CCM on Colfax, featuring brikAbrak, and produced by Illmind.
