We’ve been waiting to hear this one for some time. 20-something year old producer Def Dee was signed to a development deal with Mello Music Group last year, with no pressure or deadlines, and now we get to hear the rewards of that patience.
His debut album, 33 an’a third, is due spring next year, we’re looking forward to it a great deal.

Mello Music Group say: “Another beautiful visual from Uptown XO shot and directed by Ralph Lorenzo from the clctv. This is an important visual that reflects what XO stands for as an mc. Occupy DC will be on the upcoming mixtape and was based of the Occupy movement going on earlier in 2012. The video asks viewers to imagine a universe where knowledge is truly dangerous. It’s a good glimpse of what’s in store for XO fans.
Look for the upcoming mixtape The Color Grey (October 1st) and the new album Colour de Grey on Mello Music Group this winter.”
To celebrate the release of the always-brilliant Oddisee’s new album, People Hear What They See (available for download, here), we’re treated to this ‘wow-wee’ piece of brilliance, featuring Olivier Daysoul.

His words on the new record:
“This album is about influence, inspiration, perception & reality. Every song was written in an outside environment, so that I could observe the subjects that would become my subject matter. All too often in Hip Hop, reality is limited to that of the artists own, actual experiences. People Hear What They See is my attempt to liberate the MC from those constraints & allow reality to be penned other than my own. Listening to congressmen & lawyers converse on the steps of the supreme court inspired ‘American Greed’, Watching a couple argue over the phone in a bar inspired ‘Maybes’. By having a visual representation of my subject matter, my hopes are that the listener will see them through the worlds & melodies of my songs.”
If you heard Rock Creek Park you’ll know the new album will be an essential purchase.
