Honky

Real Name:
Kye Wright, Matt Ellis
Profile:
Before there was Rizzle Kicks, there was Oui 3. And before there was Oui 3, there was Honky, the duo of an original cross between Arrested Development-style urban poetry and Stereo MCs-style beats and breaks, courtesy of rapper Kye Wright and producer Matt Ellis. Debut album The Ego Has Landed was hailed as “genius” by the NME and “The kind of dippy kaleidoscopic jeunesse that De La Soul would kill for” by Peter Paphides. For Resident Advisor, it's "an original cross between urban poetry and beats & breaks, like the Black Eyed Peas but ten years early." "Next time you play your worn out copy of De La Soul's 3 Feet High And Rising and wonder why on earth there isn't more records as fun, catchy, as that classic, then ponder no more..."
