Oddisee Is In Amazing Stride. He Pops His Collar On A New Single (Audio)
Oddisee has been mostly self-contained in 2017. He produces, he raps, and he does not do a ton of guest vocal features in modern times. Rather, attention is deserved on the Diamond District member’s albums, most recently The Iceberg.
Last week, Oddisee released an a la carte track (“Never Lived”) with Adult Swim. This week, the artist gives a strong show of support to Mello Music Group label-mate, L’Orange. As the Nashville, Tennessee producer gears up for The Ordinary Man (October 27), he unleashes lead single “Look Around.”
The beat is a Soul sample groove, with several layers including a bassline, multiple vocals, and more. Cocky on the pepped-up beat, Oddy’ spits about how he isn’t in a position to take bad deals, accept less than the best, or waste time. Oddisee is polite and humble, but he’s earned the right to flex. He does so, bragging about hard work, great art, and reflecting on his life and times.
