Oddisee & Good Compny | The Goings On Artist: Oddisee & Good Compny Song: The Goings On Album: Tangible Dream Label: Mello Music Group Directed: Big Foot Media Lead Vocals: Amir Mohamed (aka Oddisee) Guitar & Back Up Vocals: Olivier St. Louis Bass: Dennis Turner Keys & Back-Up Vocals: Ralph Washingotn (aka Ralph Real) Drums & BVs: Jon Laine MPC: Richard Patterson (aka The Unknown) About Oddisee "Tangible Dream" I live in a gentrified part of Brooklyn, I eat out several times a week, I travel the world sampling the best that cities across the globe have to offer. Do I live in a penthouse loft? Am I dinning in five stars restaurants? Can you only find me in the most exclusive areas? Do I own a jet? The answer to all the above is most certainly no. I’m just a regular man from Prince George’s county, Maryland that figured shit out. I discovered that I can make a career in an arena dominated by artists that sell false dreams. I realized that although the masses may not know of my body of work, it doesn’t take the whole world to have the world I want. Tangible Dream is a mix-tape dedicated to the deconstruction of our traditional ideas of success & shedding light on the possibility of a sustainable rap life. These rhymes were written in economy class seats, these beats were produced on long bus trips & these songs were recorded in airbnb apartments. All I want to do is make music for a living so that I can live to make music. The only dreams I’m interested in are the ones I can grasp. It just so happens that anything you want bad enough can be obtained. Perhaps the world may never know of my accomplishments but accomplishments they are nonetheless.
