Producer oddCouple haven’t been featured on the site for quite some time, but this collaboration with fellow midwestern emcees WebsterX and Mick Jenkins is a great way to reintroduce the Chicago-based producer and Milwaukee native. “Blinded” is the first track from oddCouple’s upcoming solo project Liberation.
The track is filled with warm synths and and humming bass, while vocal samples and irregular snares break up the wavy melody. Mick Jenkins delivers an expectedly excellent verse, and WebsterX more than holds his own on the track.
OddCouple describes the track to Complex as “a showcase of these amazing artists who have the same mindset as mine, and are truly homies. WebsterX is one of my best friends in the music game, and also from Milwaukee. We just see eye to eye and have so much in common, his narrative feels like mine. And Mick Jenkins is one of the best from Chicago who values these same ideals. With the combo of the two it’s so powerful to make something fun, personal, and thought-provoking.”
niggas love it so they had to hate it
I could tell their feelings fabricated
I could really give a fuck though
these days all my niggas been emancipated
