Oddisee – “NNGE” feat. Toine

Never Not Getting Enough is right! It is also the expanded title of “NNGE” from “The Iceberg” album being dropped by Oddisee… like TOMORROW! Certified banger with feature work from Toine on this jawn. Check out the liner notes, links (including a FREE single download and album pre-order), and an embedded stream below.

The prolific MC, producer and musician Oddisee’s new album ‘The Iceberg’ is a plea for humanity to dig deeper in search of understanding and common ground. His third release in just 12 months, ‘The Iceberg’ is a distillation of stereotypical tropes in Hip-Hop and beyond, 12 tracks about money, sex, politics, race and religion that appear superficial until his multi-dimensional lyrics unfurl to expose the complexities of individuality and identity: how we see ourselves and how others see us. Deeply soulful, and shot through with jazz, Go-go, gospel, thick r&b and hard beats, the album is a timely, poetic statement. ‘The Iceberg’ is out February 24 on Mello Music Group.

Oddisee – “Born Before Yesterday”

“The Odd Tape” is meant to be a ‘Day In The Life’ piece set to audio. “Born Before Yesterday” takes its title from the daily proposals I receive that question intelligence in ways that only the music industry can.”

Oddisee – “Belong To The World” (Video)

Never was the cool dude… never was the suave guy… more like the odd guy…
Oddisee

One more from “The Good Fight” LP. Oddisee presents visuals for “Belong To The World.”

“Belong to the World” is a song about making a transition from feeling like I didn’t fit into anything, into understanding we belong to everything. It is a song about understanding that the world is bigger than the small things we want to be a part of.

NPR: “Tiny Desk Concerts” Series Welcomes Oddisee (Video)

One of my favorite albums of 2015 so far is The Good Fight by Oddisee.  So when NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert Series invited the DC emcee to come perform some tracks off his new album I was excited.  Oddisee does not disappoint with his performance backed by a live two piece band he rocks the NPR offices.  Performing the tracks That’s Love, Contradiction’s Maze, and Belong to the World he got the crowd involved and sounded as clear as he does on the album.  It’s refreshing to see a Hip Hop artist rock a show no frills no loud screaming and 20 people on stage and still have the crowd enthralled by the performance.  Good job fighting the Good Fight Oddisee!

Oddisee Talks ‘The Good Fight’, Opportunity To Work with Dr. Dre’s Aftermath & Being True To Himself (Video)

In today’s scope of Hip Hop most artists seek out the limelight and love talking about how well they are doing. The Artist/Producer Oddisee is quite the opposite is he dedicated to his craft and concerned with being the best performer he can be absolutely.  Does he concern himself with the fact he might not get certain props or being tracked down by certain rappers for beats negative.  Oddisee has a new album out “The Good Fight” and it is a self produced album exhibiting some of his best work (my personal opinion).  He recently sat down with Rosenberg at Hot 97 to discuss what he has been up to.

Open Mike Eagle – “Celebrity Reduction Prayer” (Prod. By Oddisee)

“Watch me smash all of these idols / Got my own heavyweight title / There’s no upper tier, we’re all peers / Unless y’all want to be rivals”
Open Mike Eagle

Nice! Instead of using his 4 minutes of fame on simple braggadocio, Open Mike Eagle offers this “Celebrity Reduction Prayer” on behalf of us all… trying to get these idols (that we made, doh!) off their high horses and pedestals. And for any celeb feeling some kind of way, you see the quote. Go See the Eagle about it. Better yet, don’t. You’ll just get hit with those bars he has; and a lyrical azz whuppin doesn’t make for good selfies or viral videos. Hahaaa!

Music produced by Oddisee. Song appears on the full length release “Persona” (out now).

Oddisee – “Belong To The World”

oddisee-good-fight

Love, honesty, and selflessness… that’s how Oddisee fights “The Good Fight.” It’s virtue meets Hip-Hop virtuoso.

For Oddisee, “The Good Fight” is about living fully as a musician without succumbing to the traps of hedonism, avarice, and materialism. It’s music that yields an intangible feeling: the sacral sound of an organ whine, brass horns, or a cymbal crash. It’s a meditation on our capacity to love and the bonds binding us together. It’s our ambition and greed warring with our sense of propriety – a list of paradoxes we all face when living and striving.

Even with the stacked odds against good music, and even good people, Oddisee refuses to submit. And look: To win the hearts and minds of people… FREE music! Sure you can stream “The Good Fight” (album), and buy if you like. But he goes further. Giving away a single (“Belong To The World”). Give it a listen. Hit the link below.
