Oddisee – “Hip Hop’s Cool Again”
Oddisee makes a bold statement indeed on “Hip Hop’s Cool Again” but he backs it up! This is a highly personal statement, but one that anyone with a little imagination can relate to. Boasting is nothing new to hip-hop, but it is so often dreary and empty, some fool yelling I’m the sh!t, mine’s bigger, blah blah. But when it’s done right, boasts can be righteous, entertaining, life affirming and fun. Such is the case here. This is great track and I’m picking up the CD.
