Producer:
Oddisee
Album:
Tangible Dream

Thus far in 2014, we’ve already featured boatloads of dope new music, but in the Back of My Mind I’ve had the feeling that something was missing. Now I know what—or rather, who—it was: Oddisee. Not featured on the solo tip since October, when he won rave Booth reviews for Own Appeal, the D.C. rapper and producer kicks the new year off on an introspective note with this freshly-minted video single. Over his own pensive piano loops and understated bells, Odd takes stock of his current hustle, spitting about his struggle to distinguish real friends from snakes in the grass and acknowledging his recent exasperation with the haters. Paolo Escobar provides some tuneful hook vocals, and Jeremy Ian Thomas directs the moody official visuals. For Back of My Mind and much more, cop Oddisee’s Tangible Dream LP, out now via Mello Music Group.
