Oddisee "Exposes Uncomfortable Truths" (NPR Music) On 'The Iceberg' Out Today On Mello Music Group

Massive International Tour Launches March 2 In Paris

Prolific MC/producer Oddisee today releases his highly anticipated ‘The Iceberg’ (Mello Music Group). A plea for understanding and empathy, a call for his listeners to dig deeper into big-picture issues like race, politics, wealth and religion – ‘The Iceberg’ is a smoldering window into the soul of an artist thinking critically about individuality and identity. The album has been met with raves from Time Magazine, NPR, Stereogum, a powerful NPR Weekend Edition segment, a song premiere on Ebro’s Beats 1 radio show, opened the 2017 First Friday’s season at the LA Natural History Museum and much more. On March 2 Oddisee and his band Good Compny embark on a massive 3-month international tour.

"A scathing indictment of our current political landscape that still manages to sound smooth as f*ck" – Stereogum (on the song “Like Really”)
