Michael Jackson (born 6 November 1978), better known by his stage name Oh No, is an American rapper and record producer from Oxnard, California. In addition to a lengthy solo career, Oh No is a member of Gangrene, alongside The Alchemist.

Oh No grew up in a musical family, and is the younger brother of Madlib. Oh No made his debut in 1999 on his brother's group Lootpack's album Soundpieces: Da Antidote, and signed to Stones Throw Records a few years later. Oh No released his predominantly self-produced debut album, The Disrupt, in 2004 to positive reviews from critics. Two years later, he released his follow up album, Exodus Into Unheard Rhythms, exclusively sampling the music of Galt MacDermot. It was well received by critics, and established Oh No as one of the leading producers in underground hip hop.

In 2007, he released the instrumental Dr. No's Oxperiment to rave reviews, which was entirely constructed using samples of Turkish, Lebanese, Greek and Italian music. Two years later, he utilised a similar strategy for the album Dr. No's Ethiopium, but this time only used samples from Ethiopian music. In 2012, he released two albums: Ohnomite and Dr. No's Kali Tornado Funk. In 2013, Oh No worked alongside The Alchemist, Tangerine Dream and Woody Jackson to score the video game Grand Theft Auto V. That same year, he released the solo album, Disrupted Ads, and the collaboration album, Animal Serum, with Prince Po.
