Oddisee Address Stereotypes In Hip-Hop On New Album, ‘The Iceberg’

Today’s so great. From the slew of new music (Thundercat, Future, Taylor Bennett, Karreim Riggins), I think I’m most excited for Oddisee’s new album, The Iceberg.

Landing at 12 tracks, the DMV native keeps the ball rolling from a 2016 that saw Oddisee release two of the year’s best projects, Alwasta and The Odd Tape.

Oddisee 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.”

With two features — one from Toine (“NNGE“), the other from Oliver St. Louis — on The Iceberg, dig into it below via Apple Music. Cop the album on Bandcamp.
