Oddisee ft. yU (of Diamond District) – Still Doing It

Monday, August 22nd, 2011

Oddisee links up with yU of Diamond District for this track off his new album Rock Creek Park, coming out on Mello Music Group on September 6th but will be exclusively available on iTunes at midnight tonight.

Says Oddisee on Rock Creek Park, which is an ode to the park in Washington, D.C. and a personal album for the rapper/producer who is preparing his solo rap album for the end of the year.

Rock creek park is & has always been one of my favorite places in Washington, DC. It has a way of aging with you & adapting to where you are in life. When I was younger, it was a place for skipping rocks, bike rides & imaginary adventures in the woods. As a teen it was a place where I played basket ball, had cook outs with friends & walked through with dates. As an adult it’s my short cut through the city, my quickest way from Silver Spring to George Town. One thing it still is and always well be is my retreat.

Listening to the Black Byrd’s “Rock Creek Park” inspired me to create an entire album around the park & my relationship with it. 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 my interpretation of Rock Creek Park through break beats, samples & live instrumentation.

Rock Creek Park will be all instrumentals except for this one track.
