Oddisee & Good Compny Bring ‘The Iceberg’ Cut “Like Really” To Life In Highsnobiety / Colors Berlin

Oddisee & Good Compny Bring 'The Iceberg' Cut "Like Really" To Life In Highsnobiety / Colors Berlin Session

"A Scathing Indictment Of Our Political Landscape That Still Manages To Sound Smooth As F***." - Stereogum On "Like Really"

On the heels of his critically lauded new record 'The Iceberg,' Oddisee has embarked on a massive three-month international tour that lands in the United States just two weeks from today. During a recent tour stop in Berlin, the prolific MC/producer teamed up with COLORS and Highsnobiety for an infectious, incendiary full-band performance of album-standout "Like Really." Live instrumentation accentuates Oddisee's blistering verses and shows off his vocal range in the track's soulful choruses. The MC's backing band GOOD COMPNY (Ralph Real, Mr. Turner, Jon Laine) give vibrant, rock-solid performances throughout.

'The Iceberg' is a plea for understanding, an argument that once we peel back the superficial differences, we are not all that different from one another.  It's "art imitating life" says MTV, and a "reflection on the greater state of humanity, in all its beauty and flaws” (NY Magazine).
