KOHH has had a remarkable move into the limelight over the past few years, becoming a globally known rapper through a plethora of album releases. The viral Korean and Japanese hit “잊지마” (It G Ma), a collaboration with Frank Ocean on “Nikes,” a single alongside Hikaru Utada, and the recent feature on Mariah Carey’s album Caution in the Japanese version of “Runway.”

If there was one artist in Asia that is really setting the tone of creating a new sound in hip-hop, it’s Tokyo-native KOHH who has boisterously thrust his peculiar uniqueness into the long-standing history of the island nation’s hip-hop scene. While he’s remained an outlier to the mainstream audience for quite some time, he remains an artistic polymath who’s continuous influence on the scene hasn’t gone unnoticed by the new generation of Japanese youth.

Now, the rapper has taken the Japanese hip-hop renaissance further, releasing his 5th studio album UNTITLED. After initially releasing only hard copies of the album nearly a week ago, which also incorporated a 4D live-viewing of the project, it is now finally streamable. The new offering nonetheless shows new prospects for the artist and his direction, who doesn’t just stop at rapping, but aptly infuses the project with rock & roll, classical string arrangements, uniquely tweaked vocals, and more.

Stream the album below, and let us know your thoughts on the newly released project.
