Rappers are robots & dinosaurs, except this fucker:
In Kokayi’s world, most rappers fall into one of two categories: robots or dinosaurs. Robots blindly follow popular trends and thrive by reinventing the lyrical wheel, while dinosaurs are archaic fossils, too old to compete in a game dominated by brash 20-somethings. http://www.washingtoncitypaper.com/blogs/artsdesk/music/2010/10/01/reviewed-robots-dinosaurs-by-kokayi/

Drink a couple of beers, smoke a bowl, cus you don't know what you're getting into. Most versatile rapper/singer/producer out.

And when you've been impressed, go buy Robots & Dinosaurs (and Mass Instructions too, great piece of work!)..
The Grammy-nominated artist shows that vulnerability isn't just an occasional admission of heartbreak amid a bunch of player talk, or a quick mention of depression surrounded by lines about feeling like Superman. He carefully details his lowest moments and yet still makes an album that bangs.http://www.tbd.com/blogs/tbd-arts/2010/10/kokayi-s-robots-and-dinosaurs-tbd-tracklisting-2621.html
The former Opus Akoben front man proves unequivocally that urban music is a game for all ages, and that black people shouldn’t rely solely on hip-hop to express themselves. What results is an amazingly brilliant album that is easily one of the year’s best recordings — not just in the Nation’s Capital, but the entire industry. http://www.okayplayer.com/reviews/new-reviews-2010/koyaki-2010100711918/
