After a couple months of heavy promotion, which included leaks like “Things,” “Like Really,” & “NNGE (Never Not Getting Enough),” DMV's Sudanese-American artist Oddisee decides to come through today & release his new album The Iceberg.
Laced with 12 tracks in total, the follow up to last year’s AlWasta EP features two appearances from Toine & Olivier St. Louis. Its Bandcamp page described the album as "a distillation of stereotypical tropes in hip-hop and beyond, 12 tracks about money, sex, politics, race and religion that appear superficial until his multi-dimensional lyrics unfurl to expose the complexities of individuality and identity: how we see ourselves and how others see us. Deeply soulful, and shot through with jazz, Go-go, gospel, thick r&b and hard beats, the album is a timely, poetic statement.”
Stream the album now via Apple Music, and look for Oddisee to hit the road next month for his worldwide tour (see dates here).
