“Noah winds his words up to max capacity, his flow ascending the beat like an anaconda on speed weaving its way up through the banister of a spiral staircase” - cokemachineglow.com
“Noah23 is definitely not of this earth. Only someone capable of circular breathing through their skin could rap and sing like this. Whereas other emcees have styles or signatures or gimmicks, Noah23 is the first emcee to my knowledge who has had his corpus callosom removed and replaced with an interface connecting his frontal lobe directly into a multi-track and thus his unconscious to the listening world.” - ukhiphop.com
“Noah23 pulls words and phrases out of the stratosphere and makes them move and sing in laughing, playful rhymes.”
