A new track from the ever impressive Oddisee is always a good thing. Oddisee is as equally talented as a rapper as he is a producer which puts him among my favorite artists. This track was released to satiate his fans until the release of People Hear What They See, set to be released on June 5th by the always on point Mello Music Group. This will be his debut album and make it’s way onto your radar for fresh new hip hop. Here’s what Oddisee’s had to say about the album:
“This album is about influence, inspiration, perception & reality. Every song was written in an outside environment, so that I could observe the subjects that would become my subject matter. All too often in Hip Hop, reality is limited to that of the artists own, actual experiences. People Hear What They See is my attempt to liberate the MC from those constraints & allow reality to be penned other than my own. Listening to congressmen & lawyers converse on the steps of the supreme court inspired ‘American Greed’, Watching a couple argue over the phone in a bar inspired ‘Maybes’. By having a visual representation of my subject matter, my hopes are that the listener will see them through the worlds & melodies of my songs.”
