Alwasta by Oddisee

Sudanese­-American hip­hop artist Oddisee’s new EP, “Al­Wasta,” takes its title from the Arabic colloquial term used to mean (to use colloquial English) “the plug.” The term “wasta” comes from the Arabic word “wasat,” meaning “middle” or “middleman,” and describes a member of the community who acts as a connector using their wealth of social currency. 42 more words

Oddisee - The Odd Tape (Out Now!)

The Odd Tape revolves around the rhythms of the artist’s daily life. It starts in the morning with “Alarmed,” that sounds like if Shuggie Otis did a psychedelic eye-opening cover of Nas’ “Shootouts.” It rolls through “Right Side of the Bed,” with its glitter-gold sax lines, loose drums, and sunshine-slanting-through-the-blinds keyboards. 67 more words

The second best..

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure
But most men treasure what other men have

Just observe and notice.

…words of This life come from Amir.
