All praises due to Mello Music Group. Time and time again, they lace hard drives across the country with quality music, giving shine to a variety of underexposed artists. Today, as part of the “Free Friday” series they’ve been running all summer, they let Oddisee’s “101” out to the masses. That’s a pretty good deal, considering talented emcees like Little Brother, Phonte, Jean Grae, MED and J-Live appear on the guest list, and Oddisee, Flying Lotus and M-Phazes show up behind the boards.
If you’re on the fence, check “Song For That.” Right now, it’s hitting the spot for me. The string sample in the track is smooth and soulful, the drums knock, and Oddisee comes strong with a little food for thought. Just what I needed to play as the work week winds to an end.
