Oddisee - The Good Fight

Oddisee - The Good Fight
In a landscape overrun with abstract indulgence and shallow trend-chasers, the Prince George’s County, Maryland artist Oddisee has created a record that reminds you that it’s music before it’s hip-hop. 

For Oddisee, “The Good Fight” is about living fully as a musician without succumbing to the traps of hedonism, avarice, and materialism. It’s music that yields an intangible feeling: the sacral sound of an organ whine, brass horns, or a cymbal crash. It’s a meditation on our capacity to love and the bonds binding us together. It’s our ambition and greed warring with our sense of propriety - a list of paradoxes we all face when living and striving.

Rapper Big Pooh - Words Paint Pictures (Album)

Rapper Big Pooh - Words Paint Pictures (Album)
Mello Music Group presents Rapper Big Pooh’s  highly anticipated album, Words Paint Pictures, produced by Detroit's Apollo Brown with one exclsuive remix from L'Orange. The new album also features Ras Kass, Marv Won, Lure, Novej, Jalen Santoy, Steve Roxx, and Erik "Blakk Soul" Keith.
 
The North Carolina MC captures the complex agonies of the human condition—specifically the black experience in America over the last several centuries. These are tales of racial profiling and corrupt politicians, reality TV distractions, thieving preachers and rapacious exploitation—all offset by tremendous strength. They are uniquely American stories, chronicling both the damned and hopeful. From bleak circumstances, a profoundly durable human spirit emerges.
