Tonight (Friday, the 4th of October), we’re featuring an artist that has found their niche.
Amir Mohamed el Khalifa, or Oddisee, as he’s known, just released a new mixtape. It’s called Tangible Dream. About the tracks, Oddisee says, “These rhymes were written in economy class seats, these beats were produced on long bus trips & these songs were recorded in airbnb apartments.”
Oddisee has found success on the fringes. His music has a chill vibe with a very obvious influence from early east coast rappers like Tribe Called Quest.
Check it out for yourself: here’s a stream of his latest work.
We’ll also be featuring some local flavor at the Union tonight.
Klassik, of Milwaukee, perfectly complement’s Oddisee’s chill vibe, bringing his own relaxed and lyrical style to the stage. So grab a pitcher, sip slowly, and nod your head to the hypnotic and trancy bass lines of both rappers.
But don’t miss the opener. He’s from Madison. Coby Ashpis is his name, and here’s a live video of him:
