    Product Details

    Summary

    "This album is about influence, inspiration, perception & reality. Every song was written in an outside environment, so that I could observe the subjects that would become my subject matter. All too often in Hip Hop, reality is limited to that of the artists own, actual experiences. People Hear What They See is my attempt to liberate the MC from those constraints & allow reality to be penned other than my own. Listening to congressmen & lawyers converse on the steps of the supreme court inspired 'American Greed', Watching a couple argue over the phone in a bar inspired 'Maybes'. By having a visual representation of my subject matter, my hopes are that the listener will see them through the worlds & melodies of my songs."

    Comment: The sound of Oddisee on top of his game creatively, both as an emcee and producer. This is the definitive NOW sound of indie rap. You are either down with it or not. Don't sleep, massive contender for album of the year.

    Comment: This might be album of the year for me. Top 3 at least. Oddisee is an incredible producer and a pretty decent on the mic, too. The some of the content he touches on here, anyone can relate to. Good, honest music as some of y'all described it. I can't stop listening to it!

    Comment: This album has some great beats and great lyricism....the problem is tracks 4,6, and 10 are so fucking bad....i dont know how you make such a good bangin beat like "Do It All" and then you turn around and make a shitty sounding song like "Set You Free". he shoulda cut those 3 songs out and made it an EP.

    Comment: This album is ahead of most people - I swear they'll uncover it again. Sure Ready to Rock is big and catches peoples attention but the best tracks on here are Way In Way Out, American Greed, That Real, You Know Who You Are, Do It All. That's 6 fire tracks and I'm still unraveling the rest.

    Comment: All in all I give this 3 stars. I thought it was going to be pretty good with how awesome Ready To Rock was but then it just fell off after that with the exception of about 3 songs. There is no way this is album of the year so far. Best track You Know Who You Are.

"Me, never that man, that’s never happening/ See I be rappin’ for the feeling I got back when/ I was riding on a big wheel, when friends owing me a dollar was a big deal/ Sunday night, grandmama’ cook a big meal, meaning that I do it for the innocents in it still/ & if I’m naive f*** it man"

Hes from my hometown and definitely represents well on the cut "think of things". Wale is the best out the DMV??? I beg to differ. He can learn a few things from ODDISEE

    Comment: Fucking great album. Oddisee is definitely one of the best lyricists out today - not to mention his production spans a lot of genres and influences while creating it's own sound. Big up. 2012 has been a good year for Hip-Hop (Killer Mike, Oddisee, El-P, Ab-Soul, Apollo Brown & OC, Big Krit).

    Comment: MMG never disappoints. Every month they release another illmatic. This album is like illmatic only better. Oddisee is not just a great producer, but a lyrical wizard, much like Nas on illmatic. I dont wanna give this 5 stars, I want to give it 12 stars. This album is perfect, and obviously wont be more bland 2012 Hip-Hop disappointment (imagine that!)

    Comment: Without doubt the most talented producer in the game right now... the last 3 years has seen Oddisee finally being acknowledged as an exceptional Producer/MC and his work during those few years has just been mindblowing!!! Diamond District, Mello Music compilation, Self Sacrifice, countless production credits for a number of artists and now this gem. Oddisee is def on top of his game and continues to drop nothing but hip hop goodness and long may it continue... Apollo Brown is also big right now but I think Oddisee just edges it...

    Comment: what is wrong with people? if you are the type of person who listens to snippets once or twice on your computer speakers and then judges an album - your opinion is void. You are looking for "hooks" and "bells & whistles" and "gimmicks" that lure you in quickly. Oddisee's appeal to me has been that his music reveals itself with time. The more I listen the more I catch. The word is called subtlety and the dude is a master at it. Believe I will be copping this.

    Comment: Oddisee is a musical genius. It isn't about loving everything he does, it's about loving that he is creative and continues to breathe life into Hip-Hop from all sorts of angles. I'm rooting for Oddisee to blast off, he's got Roots, Common, Kanye in his blood - could really go all the way. Rock Creek Park was creative as fuck. Can't wait for this one.
