Noname is an artist that hides in plain sight. With a small yet dedicated following that is growing by the day, she’s solidified her position as a successful independent artist. I was lucky enough to see her on the Telefone Tour two years ago, and equally as lucky to see her again on the Room 25 Tour, this time to a sold-out crowd at the Wiltern.
With poignant lyrics and tongue-in-cheek jokes, Noname creatively pulls together verses like no other rapper in the industry today. “Blaxploitation” and “Prayer Song” touch upon more serious issues, while “Regal” and “Ace” touch on her more playful side. She performed a mix of songs from both the Telefone and Room 25 albums, and even brought out Phoelix to perform a few together.
