New Music: RyanNicole: Dis’onance -Vol. 1

By Coolhand Luke  |  July 21st, 2010  |  Published in Music

Dis’onance – Vol. 1 is the first mixtape in a series courtesy of Oakland’s RyanNicole. The MC/Actress/Model/Non-Profit Executive Director has presented us with nine tracks to vibe to, rock to, and reflect upon. And she’s good. Not like “oh you’re good for a girl” type good, but like “I need you in this cypher” good.

Last week RyanNicole was one of the featured emcees at the monthly artist showcase Uptown Underground, but for the most part she’s been lowkey. Positioning herself as the underdog, Ms. Niole is more of the show and prove type than the spotlight seeking diva. She lets her music speak for itself, because she can. This is for all you artists who need gimmickry to maintain relevance. Take a listen.
