ODDISEE-INTERVIEW-BANNER

 

Oddisee was raised by his African American mother and Sudanese father in Washington DC’s Prince George’s County. Oddisee was originally influenced by his parents’ heritages, combined with a hip-hop influence from his older cousins. In an interview with NPR, he explained why he was influenced by early East Coast emcees such as Eric B. & Rakim, De La Soul, and A Tribe Called Quest. He stated that these rappers don’t talk about drugs or murder, and he could relate more to their lyrics.
