PG County’s Oddisee is the pinnacle of underground rap. From early works like Odd Renditions and Tangible Dream, to more recent releases like Alwasta and The Iceberg, his consistency and quality is unrivaled. As a rapper and producer every element of work is truly his. His work is thought-provoking and intelligent while remaining approachable. Each project feels like listening to wise old friend and his latest Odd Cure is no exception.
“For the first time in my life, the world has had a truly shared experience. The ‘Odd Cure’ is my way to providing a soundtrack to our thoughts, worries, hopes and dreams.” Oddisee states along with the release. Tied together with myriad of skits taken from phone calls with family, friends and his manager, each call provides a window into the perspective of someone different, from his mother’s struggles with taking subway, to his homie mask shopping, to Oddisee checking in with his manager around touring. As for the music it’s just what we’ve come to expect. Over 6 tracks Oddisee makes you smile, reflect, bob your head and stop and think. Odd Cure presents a time capsule of the weird world we’re living in while also providing a timeless aesthetic.
