Oddisee's Rock Creek Park is officially available everywhere today on CD! To celebrate Oddisee is giving away the special edition vocal version of the track Mattered Much.
About the song:
Mattered Much was not initially made for Rock Creek Park, but after putting together nine songs for the album, Oddisee went back into the hard drive, rediscovered this song up, and realized it was perfect for the album. Oddisee's really proud of the drum programming on this track, it took him "a long ass time to program all those rolls". The guitars played by Andy Faus give it such a grimy feel while Lucan Pipkin’s strings polish the track. Definitely a track produced by the ’96 Reasonable Doubt in Oddisee, meeting up with the 4Hero in him. This is the official vocal version of the track featuring Olivier Daysoul. For the complete track by track breakdown from Oddisee, visit http://allindstrom.com/2011/09/track-by-track-breakdown-of-rock-creek-park-by-oddisee/ .
About the Album:
Rock Creek Park is Oddisee's newest instrumental album dedicated to Washington DC's famous park. The album debuted at #15 in the USA on iTunes and has been garnering positive attention across the boards. King's of Comedy star DL Hughley said "Oddisee's new joint is hot death." While West Coast legend Murs tweeted "really dope music."
If the park were to have a soundtrack, what would it be? What does walking along the trails of the park sound like? What does driving on the narrow tree lined roads sound like? This album is Oddisee's interpretation of Rock Creek Park through break beats, samples & live instrumentation.
YG Stunna with special guest V Nasty give you the official "Gucci Gucci (Remix)" Music Video featuring Stevie L. Filmed on location in Sacramento, CA and Oakland, CA.
Hailing from the Bay area, YG Stunna has had to overcome many obstacles in his life. While music has always been his true passion, YG's initial path to success looked as if it would be on the football field, as he was a highly-recruited player who had offers from a host of D-1 programs; including Oregon St, Nevada & San Diego St. Unfortunately, YG did not meet the academic standards required to gain entrance and saw his dreams of gridiron greatness and a free education seemingly slip from his grasp; the devastation eventually lead him to stop going to High-School altogether.
These events also lead him back to the streets in search of fast money and after being kicked out of his Mom's house, he lived with various friends and in some cases his own car. Upon scraping up enough money to get his own place, things seemed to be turning for YG, as he was back on his sports and education grind and training to recapture his football dreams. Yet, after tearing his ACL training, YG underwent a vigorous six-month rehab program and finally landed that sought-after scholarship. However, YG then re-tore his ACL on the first day of spring practice and his football dreams came to an abrupt halt.
Back in the streets, YG began concentrating on his music and it brought him peace, as he was making lots of waves locally and even reconnected with his Mother and family and brought a son into the world. Yet, tragedy struck again, as YG was shot by an automatic rifle and the bullet was lodged just a centimeter away from his spine. Though he was lucky to survive he still has particles from the bullet in his lungs.
Undaunted, after a lengthy recovery process, YG dove head-first back into music with an unwavering devotion. Now buzzing in the streets of the Bay, YG eschewed offers from a few high-profile labels and instead, invested in himself and at the age of 20 started his own imprint CME.
The fruits of YG's labor are evident on his "Cash & Tattoos" mixtape hosted by DJ Holiday.
