Title - 'Mixed Emotions'
Artist - Nohokai

For those unaware, Hawaiian-born Emcee/Producer Nohokai has just released his new album Mixed Emotions across digital and online music platforms today via Perfect Time Music Group.

Nohokai has created an underground hip-hop debut for the ages enlisting an all-star cast of guests for the album that reads like a lineup worthy of a festival.

The album is a nod to the true school of hip-hop sound with Nohokai providing boom-bap production style beats for an A-list to unleash some hard-hitting bars courtesy of R.A. The Rugged Man, Locksmith, Chino XL, ILL BILL, Gift of Gab, and more!

1. 'Introkai'
2. 'A Level' (feat. True Justice & Casual)
3. 'Catch the Wave' (Feat. Gift Of Gab)
4. 'Asphalt' (Feat. R.A. The Rugged Man, Big Earth)
5. 'Careless' (feat. DJ Gi Joe & Diabolic)
6. 'Burden of Proof' (Feat. Pep Love)
7. 'Limitless' (feat. Tone Spliff & Apathy)
8. 'Final Destination' (feat. DJ Gi Joe & Nems)
9. 'Was' (Feat. Chino XL)
10. 'Golden Goose' (Feat. Slaine & Rite Hook)
11. 'Nothing More I Can Say' (Feat. Locksmith)
12. 'Life is But A Dream' (Feat. Eligh)
13. 'Where the Party At' (feat. DJ Eclipse, Ill Bill, Matt Maddox)

Opening with the short, but ever-so-sweet 'Introkai,' we move seamlessly into the gentle rap of 'A Level' (feat. True Justice & Casual), the heavier-toned rap of 'Catch the Wave' (Feat. Gift Of Gab), the melodic run-on of 'Asphalt' (Feat. R.A. The Rugged Man, Big Earth), and then both the Eminem-esque 'Careless' (feat. DJ Gi Joe & Diabolic) and the best track on here (in my humble opinion), the boot-tappin' 'Burden of Proof' (Feat. Pep Love).

Next up is the free-flowing rap of 'Limitless' (feat. Tone Spliff & Apathy) which is followed by the lighter fare of 'Final Destination' (feat. DJ Gi Joe & Nems), the rhymical hipsway, complete with speedster-spitting, hard center rap of 'Was' (Feat. Chino XL), the lyrically intriguing 'Golden Goose' (Feat. Slaine & Rite Hook), and then rounds out with the easy going flow of 'Nothing More I Can Say' (Feat. Locksmith), the melodic 'Life is But A Dream' (Feat. Eligh), closing on the hard-hitting 'Where the Party At' (feat. DJ Eclipse, Ill Bill, Matt Maddox).

As he matured, Nohokai quickly realized that performing as an MC wasn’t his true calling and instead turned to the studio as his rightful place in the hip-hop ecosystem.

Now as a grown man with a growing list of responsibilities, Nohokai has put everything he’s got into this full-length debut as a producer.

The result is a polished, mature, aggressive sound that rings of the same urgency Nohokai feels for his musical abilities.
