An Ode To Resilience: Time Magazine Premieres Oddisee's Video For "NNGE" Along With Q&A

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Time Magazine has premiered the video for Oddisee's "NNGE" today, an ode to Black American resilience. The video finds the prolific MC and producer going back to his roots, to film the video where he grew up outside of Washington, D.C. Taken from his just-released full length 'The Iceberg,' the song is about facing adversity and perseverance in the current political climate as a Muslim, as a Sudanese American, as a hip hop artist, all set to a deeply soulful go-go beat.

Watch the video and read the Q&A here:
'The Iceberg' has been met with raves and features from Pitchfork, NPR, Stereogum, a song premiere via Ebro's Beats 1 show and much more. Oddisee and his band Good Compny are in the midst of a massive international tour with US dates beginning April 18th.

"He deftly uses his own experiences to reflect on the greater state of humanity, in all its beauty and flaws" - New York Magazine Vulture

"A focused beam of live-band and hip-hop soul that rattles loudly in our present political moment." - Pitchfork

"Oddisee dives deep, rapping blistering topical verses over a live band." - Time Magazine
"A shrewd lyricist and observer, Oddisee has always been steadfast in his quest to expose uncomfortable truths" - NPR Music

"The DC rapper is underrated in every sense of the word and has been one of the most consistent cats to put it down, year in and year out" - Complex

"A scathing indictment of our current political landscape that still manages to sound smooth as f*ck" - Stereogum (on the song "Like Really")

"One of the most intelligent, lyrically-gifted contemporary rappers" - Brightest Young Things

Oddisee has released two studio albums, several EPs, mixtapes and instrumental albums, and has over 23 million plays on Spotify. He's been profiled by NPR, the Washington Post, praised by Pitchfork and Stereogum, performed on NPR's Tiny Desk, Red Bull Sound Select and at festivals including Glastonbury and Sasquatch. 'The Iceberg' follows two releases in 2016, the 'Alwasta EP' and the instrumentals album 'The Odd Tape.' His 2015 full-length 'The Good Fight' was a Top 10 album on the iTunes Hip-Hop/Rap chart and he won the iTunes Music award for Best Hip-Hop Album of 2012.
