Oddisee – “Like Really”

The great Brooklyn-via-DC underground rapper/producer Oddisee is coming back next month with a new LP called The Iceberg. Its lead single, “Things,” earned a spot on our 5 Best Songs Of The Week list when it came out, now he’s shared another new track. Where “Things” channeled deep anxiety into a deeply danceable groove, “Like Really” is less sunny, a scathing indictment of our current political landscape that still manages to sound smooth as fuck. “How you gonna make us great when we were never really that amazing?” Oddisee asks. “Take it back to 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?” Listen below or download the track for free here.

The Iceberg is out 2/24 on Mello Music Group.
