Focused on his own art and without getting distracted by the rap lights, Oddisee is one of the most productive musicians in the last ten years: mixtapes, albums, collaborations and many other works as a producer attest his prodigious work ethics. Son to a Sudanese father and an Afro-American mother, Oddisee grew under soul and rap influence, counting with musicians from both sides of his family. Interventive like few, Oddisee approaches themes like social and gender inequities or islamophobia. But the talented Washington DC rapper doesn’t limit himself to be a lyricist, and it is also noted by his beat-making abilities, as “Odd Tape” from 2016, an exclusively
instrumental record, proves. The year after, in 2017, Oddisee edited the album “Iceberg”. As before, the rapper is also the producer of this record, with a strong jazz influence, but also soul, funk and powerful words. And proving the impressive work ethic, later that year Oddisee also released the live album “Beneath the Surface” with the band Good Company.
