The Anthem – Onra

MP3: The Anthem – Onra (Extended and Unreleased version)

This song is basically the most badassed thing I’ve heard all week.

Onra is a French hip-hop beatmaster with 4 studio albums under his belt. The Anthem comes from his second album Chinoiseries, released in 2007. The term “chinoiserie” means “Chinese-esque” and refers to the Oriental inspiration of mid-to-late 17th-century European artists.

Chinoiseries was compiled from 30 Chinese and Vietnamese records brought back by Onra from a visit with his Vietnamese grandparents in 2006. As you guys know, I love songs that are born from records samples. I think I could listen to this track on repeat forever.
