THA BLUE HERB

THA BLUE HERB is a Japanese Hip Hop group from Sapporo city Northern part of Japan Hokkaido. They consists of Boss the MC, O.N.O as a track maker and DJ DYE plays in the live performance.
Boss the MC’s Japanese lyrics appear that they are not just the Hip Hop group but going on alternative style.
His lyrics which could be heard poems are sometimes so hard and sometimes softly and gently.
The characteristic of his lyric is the message of it. It’s almost protest songs or political songs, and even hip-hop self references.
O.N.O’s minimal beats surround his lyric and makes their unique soundscape. That can’t be seen in Tokyo urban style, but also some local place in Asia.
The playing of DJ DYE are supporting Boss’s live MC. Their live has romanticness and coolness that hip-hop style has. You can enjoy their rhyme and lyrics in the gigs.
this live performance was organaized by zettaimu spring 2011 at Osaka.
