Amir Mohamed el Khalifa aka Oddisee is an American rapper and producer whose intelligent and deep approach to hip-hop has lifted him among the top artists of the genre who has worked with stars like Kendrick Lamar, Will.i.am, Herbie Hanckock and others. The Washington-based artist has been active for a dozen years that include studio and mixtape albums, broad range of collaborations with the big names in hip-hop and the role of a producer in some of the most important albums in that genre.
Oddisee’s role models are the meaningful texts from classics like De La Soul, Tribe Called Quest, and Eric B. & Rakim that don’t spin around violence and external glamour. His creations have been praised by pop music style bibles like Pitchfork and Stereogum where Oddisee’s 2017 album ‘The Iceberg’ was among the best hip-hop albums of the year. Now there’s a rare chance for the Jazzkaar audience to experience the world of Oddisee.
