Finding Novyon is having fun. The gregarious Minneapolis rapper has been crowned the next King of Twin Cities Hip-Hop not for continuing Minnesota’s tradition of backpack rap, but for lifting it out of the earnest — and, frankly, boring — doldrums. Dyed-in-the-wool storyteller MC Sean Anonymous recognizes the culture is changing, so on his buoyant EP 2:44 a.m., he enlisted Novy to bring as much levity to his party anthem as possible. On “Cups,” Novyon cranks out punchline after punchline, namedropping Pokémon Hitmonlee and WWE legend Mick Foley in one mind-bending act of creativity. Try not to crack a smile when listening to Novy run through his turn over DJ Name’s buzzy party-rap beat.
