Watch Noname Perform 'Telefone' Cuts, Discuss Chicago and Women in Hip-Hop with 'New York Times'
Fresh off the first leg of her first headlining tour, Noname stopped by The New York Times to deliver an intimate performance and answer fan-sourced questions in a Facebook Live session. Today, the Times has share the full clip, where you can watch the Chicago rapper discuss her hometown's heroic years in music, along with the ever-evolving role of women in hip-hop and her preference in not being categorized as a "female rapper."
Noname's debut album Telefone arrived last year to rave reviews from critics and civilians alike, emboldening the miles-deep roster of Chicago talents already enjoying some well-earned shine (Saba, Jamila Woods, Nico Segal, Towkio, Cam O'bi and The OddCouple amongst others.) Watch her perform selections from Telefone with a band in tow and pick up a copy of the debut on iTunes today.
