Oddisee Reflects On Our Current Political Climate With “Like Really”

Oddisee Reflects On Our Current Political Climate With "Like Really"
Oddisee is back with another single. Over some very smooth, trap-influenced/jazzy-like production, Oddisee talks about things that are currently going on in our country. But that's only the first verse. During the second, the rapper/producer discusses how some may perceive him as an artist.

Oddisee is back with another single. Over some very smooth, trap-influenced/jazzy-like production, Oddisee talks about things that are currently going on in our country. But that’s only the first verse. During the second, the rapper/producer discusses how some may perceive him as an artist. The song is intelligent as well as poignant.

How you gonna make us great when we were never really that amazing /
take it back what, I don’t find hanging black lives entertaining/
how do you police the streets of a neighborhood you do not engage in/
why a brother get three for a sack while your brother go free for a raping

His next album, The Iceberg, releases on February 24.
