The Good Fight, Oddisee 2015
If this is the first time you hear the name Oddisee, you have some homework to do. My introduction to Oddisee's music happened back in 2008 via his Mental Liberation project. From the beginning, I could tell there was something unique/different about his music. Maybe it's the fact that he is equally an mc and a producer with a very high overall quality of music. Maybe it's the work ethic and soul from his Sudanese roots filtering through Oddisee's lyrics. Or maybe it's a unique mc coming from an under represented hip hop scene (Washington DC) that offers a glimpse into a new city. Maybe it's the creative photography and the traveling artist lifestyle presented on social media. Or maybe it's all of the above......
The Good Fight is a diary of an entrepreneurial independent hip hop artist in 2015. This includes resisting the impulse to assimilate your identity to the small minded mainstream in order to succeed, while maintaining s creative edge and staying motivated. This includes balancing his potential to help those close to them, while keeping his best interests in mind. It also subliminally includes the humility of an artist that launched Mello Music Group. Mello Music Group is a place to find extremely talented artists, so if you don't know, now you know. These are just a few of the ideas presented in The Good Fight, so check it out for the rest. In addition to having an intelligent, creative and musically talented artist sharing their life through art, it's all positive. At no point of The Good Fight do you feel negativity. No sob stories. No club songs. No heartbreak stories of ex's cheating........just real life music.
