Oddisee-The Odd Tape Stream


Oddisee has had a busy year so far with the release of his free Alwasta¬†EP in March, his tour, the promise of a new album and now his instrumental Odd Tape. The 12-song album was made available to stream at NPR’s site last week ahead of the May 13th release date. You can pre-order The Odd Tape and catch him on tour this spring and summer.


Throwback: Big Daddy Kane-The Lover In You


Big Daddy Kane’s “The Lover In You” is from his Prince Of Darkness album which was criticized for having more R&B/pop songs. Kane received the rare privilege of being able to sample Prince’s “Pop Life” for the single and he wore a lot of Prince’s favored purple in the video. Big Daddy Kane did not leave hip-hop behind on the Prince Of Darkness as there are guest appearances from Q-Tip, Busta Rhymes, and songs like “Brother, Brother” and “Git Bizzy.” Prince and Big Daddy Kane were previously together on an unreleased remix of “Batdance” from the Batman soundtrack which was posted on the internet after Prince’s passing.
