Oddisee is giving away “Hustle Off” today to announce that his new album “People Hear What They See” is up for pre-orders and ready for release June 12th! While Hustle Off is not on the upcoming album, it does set the tone nicely. Fans won’t have to wait long though for the first album single which is on the way!
What Oddisee has to say about his upcoming album:
“This album is about influence, inspiration, perception & reality. Every song was written in an outside environment, so that I could observe the subjects that would become my subject matter. All too often in Hip Hop, reality is limited to that of the artists own, actual experiences. People Hear What They See is my attempt to liberate the MC from those constraints & allow reality to be penned other than my own. Listening to congressmen & lawyers converse on the steps of the supreme court inspired ‘American Greed’, Watching a couple argue over the phone in a bar inspired ‘Maybes’. By having a visual representation of my subject matter, my hopes are that the listener will see them through the worlds & melodies of my songs.”
