Biography

It was around the age of 11 when making beats won out over video games to become Oh No’s most obsessive pastime. Over the years, as the Cali-bred b-boy honed his skills of rhyming and producing, it became obvious that – like his brother Madlib (iconic hip-hop maestro), his father Otis Jackson (cult ’70s soul singer) and his uncle Jon Faddis (renowned jazz trumpeter) – Oh No would go on to pursue the family business of music.

Oh No debuted as a producer and MC in his own right with The Disrupt, his 2004 full-length on Stones Throw Records. With recent beat production on the albums of fellow Oxnard, CA-based MC’s Wildchild, MED, Roc C, and on Guilty Simpson’s upcoming 2007 album Ode to the Ghetto, Oh No has probably logged more beats on Stones Throw releases than anyone else besides Madlib. In recent years, Oh No has carved out a funky style related, but distinct, to that of his famed sibling, as magazines like XXL, The Source and URB have all attested. A landmark collaboration with jazz/funk legend David Matthews (arranger behind many of James Brown’s finest albums) at last year’s Red Bull Music Academy – where Mr. Matthews composed an orchestral piece based on a single Oh No beat – hinted at the scope of things to come from the young underground impresario.

    Disrupted Ads is solid. Seems to be some of my favourite stuff he's released for a while. Oh No remains one of the most underrated producers in Hip Hop.

    Dope behind the beatmaking machines... Lotta influence from Dilla and his older brother, but bangin' shit to say the least.

    His first few beat tapes - Dr. No's Oxperiment and Dr. No's Ethiopium - are pretty good. Other than that, he's been releasing mediocre material. He is not exactly the most interesting MC.....
