Oddisee And Mello Music Group Release Album “Tangible Dream” via Fat Beats On CD
The music being produced by Oddisee and released by Mello Music Group via Fat Beats reminds me of the statement made in the 1980’s hip-hop documentary Style Wars… “Destroy All Lines”, meaning breaking down all barriers and misconceptions. In the video single “Own Appeal” (shown below) Oddisee starts out by explaining the process he uses to produce his music.
This hip-hop music is for all ages, all genders, all cities and all global communities. Real grown man talk on some real lyricism. No hyped up stories of violence or sexing up your girlfriend – just really good music! After finding the single Own Appeal I played it repeatedly all day for several days. Just like in the 70’s and 80’s when I found a hot “45” and couldn’t get enough of it. This is truly excellent production!
Oddisee: I live in a gentrified part of Brooklyn, I eat out several times a week, I travel the world sampling the best that cities across the globe have to offer. Do I live in a penthouse loft? Am I dinning in five stars restaurants? Can you only find me in the most exclusive areas? Do I own a jet? The answer to all the above is most certainly no. I’m just a regular man from Prince George’s county, Maryland that figured shit out.
I discovered that I can make a career in an arena dominated by artists that sell false dreams. I realized that although the masses may not know of my body of work, it doesn’t take the whole world to have the world I want. Tangible Dream is a mix-tape dedicated to the deconstruction of our traditional ideas of success & shedding light on the possibility of a sustainable rap life.
These rhymes were written in economy class seats, these beats were produced on long bus trips & these songs were recorded in airbnb apartments. All I want to do is make music for a living so that I can live to make music. The only dreams I’m interested in are the ones I can grasp. It just so happens that anything you want bad enough can be obtained. Perhaps the world may never know of my accomplishments but accomplishments they are nonetheless.
