Moka Freeze

It shouldn’t surprise you that a country like Canada boasts hip-hop artists. However, it may be an eye-opener when you hear how freaking good Moka Only’s flows are.

The Canadian born artist, aka Ron Contour, has been tearing up the north-of-the-border rap game for a minute, all while dropping more than 40 albums during his renowned career. The ex-Swollen Members emcee’s easy-breezy style features casual flows over beats that include porn-sounding synths and music box-like keys. In other words, his voice and overall mood would be like if Shuggie Otis ditched blues and soul and began rapping in the late ‘70s.
