Oddisee New Album Now Available At Fat Beats

Hip-hop emcee Oddisee dropped a new album via Fat Beat’s records in 2013 called “Tangible Dream”. As the title suggests, this is about the average mans dream. Something attainable, something the everyday man can strive for while still maintaining self respect… as well as the respect of his fellow man. Originating from the “Low Budget Crew”, consisting of notable members Kev Brown, Kenn Starr, Sean Born, Roddy Rod, Critically Acclaimed, Kaimbr, Cy Young, Kenwood, Hassaan Mackey, Peter Rosenberg and I.Q. Oddisee has been putting it down for some time now, as well as raising the bar for hip-hop in general.

Artist BIO: 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.
