Newcomer Oddisee just released his debut album People Hear What They See on iTunes this month and it might be the best Hip-Hop release so far this year. The DC native is one of the most prolific lyricists I’ve heard in a while. His flows carry weight and have some serious substance. He and Childish Gambino are easily the best 2 rappers I’ve heard in the past 5 years. But if you’re looking for something a little more mature than Childish, more Common than Eminem, then you gotta peep Oddisee. And get this, dude even produces his own shit. He is a rare mix of Elzhi and RJD2. The video above and free track below are not on the CD. You gotta buy that shit for yourself.
