Shout out to Ray on the Gucci Mane thread for lettng me know about this release.
I’ve been listening to Oddisee’s song Lifting Shadows a lot lately.
If you’re feeling confused or at a loss for the state of the world at the moment then let me recommend you check it out.
As Ray said in the other thread, “It’s conscious, everyday life truth rap, not ignorant crap.” Truth.

Sudanese¬≠American hip¬≠hop artist Oddisee's new EP, ‚ÄúAl¬≠Wasta,‚ÄĚ takes its title from the Arabic colloquial term used to mean (to use colloquial English) ‚Äúthe plug.‚ÄĚ The term ‚Äúwasta‚ÄĚ comes from the Arabic word ‚Äúwasat,‚ÄĚ meaning ‚Äúmiddle‚ÄĚ or ‚Äúmiddleman,‚ÄĚ and describes a member of the community who acts as a connector using their wealth of social currency. Understanding the value of social currency & how to use it (for better or worse) is what Amir Elkhalifa aka Oddisee focused on as the primary inspiration for his writings.
