“Room 25” by Noname features honesty which will appeal to many



Grace Stetson, Staff Reporter

Noname, also known as Fatimah Neeyma Warner, is a female rapper with approximately 1.6 million monthly listeners on Spotify.

After appearing on Chance the Rapper’s song “Lost” on his second mixtape “Acid Rap in 2015, she had people wanting more. About a year later in 2016, she released her first album “Telefone,” which people still listen to.

Now in September 2018, she finally released her second album, “Room 25″ featuring artists such as Saba, Smino, Ravyn Lenae, and more.

This album has a variety of music, from upbeat songs to slower songs, and songs that are just one of a kind. Warner sings about finding herself, the effects of racism, and not changing who she is for someone.

“Room 25” opens with “Self,” where Noname talks about doing things for herself instead of trying to be who others want; the beat is slow, the lyrics are empowering, and it lets you know the album is going to be good.

The last song “noname” nicely ties everything together; it has a different beginning and beat than the other songs and it preaches an important message to not let life pass you by and to live life for you.

All of the songs on this album are very honest and real which makes it very likely that every person who listens to it will relate to something.

Whether you’re driving, studying, working out, or just trying to calm down, this album is perfect for almost any occasion.

I had not listened to Noname until recently, but her songs are definitely worth listening to; they have amazing flow, meaningful lyrics, excellent instrumentals, and even better vocals.
