An enigma. An anomaly. Oddisee is a D.C. artist and pioneer with over 15 years of experience in the rap industry.
Oddisee was born in Washington, D.C. and raised in Maryland. His first release came in 2002 after producing a track entitled “Musik Lounge” on DJ Jazzy Jeff’s record “Magnificent.”
Four years later, DJ Jazzy Jeff mixed Oddisee’s debut release entitled “Foot in the Door.” In 2010, Oddisee signed to Mello Music Group an independent music label founded by Michael Tolle. Mello Music Group was recently described by Forbes.com to be the most successful new indie rap label of this decade.
Oddisee, a well known Hip Hop traveler, recently returned from the “Iceberg” world tour. The world tour reached international destinations including France, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium Italy, Bulgaria, Romania, Austria, and Poland.
From June 20th to July 1, Oddisee can be seen at the “Beneath The Surface” tour with Good Company and Oliver St. Louis. The tour will reach cities such as Maryland, Virginia, Tennessee, Ohio, and Michigan.
