Free MP3: Oddisee – Own Appeal

Free MP3: Oddisee – Own Appeal

Oddisee has really been working hard the past year since the release of his album People Hear What They See. The producer/emcee says he hasn’t spent more than two consecutive weeks at home while touring across the world.

The result of the travel is the upcoming instrumental LP The Beauty in All, which will also be accompanied by a free mixtape titled Tangible Dream. This mixtape took shape in just a couple of weeks as Oddisee finds it easier to write rhymes instead of making beats while traveling.

“Own Appeal” is the first single from this mixtape featuring a reflective mellow guitar-driven beat while Oddisee drops sharp rhymes focusing on the music, while shunning materialism of the world. “The age where we market ourselves, I’m still about the music, I don’t monitor plays/I don’t monitor hits and I don’t monitor clicks/I monitor the snare drum and the bottom of kicks.”


Manan is from Illinois (born close to Chicago) and currently in Florida for school. His love for hip hop started with the up-and-coming Northwest scene, and has led to him become fully submerged in hip hop culture. Other interests include crate digging, ultimate (frisbee), and reading sci-fi/fantasy.
