Since producing and performing the hit track "Musik Lounge" for Jazzy Jeff's "Magnificent" LP, Amir "Oddisee" Mohamed has pushed his involvement in the music industry into fifth gear, incorporated Philly’s neo soul vibe into his eclectic compositions. Coming from a diverse background, the half Sudanese half African American was blessed with musical talent from both sides of his family.
Oddisee was influenced by the accomplished singers, guitarists, and poets on his Sudanese side, and on his American side, by the gospel singers, blue grass guitar players, and older cousins who gave him his first taste of hip-hop. Ironically, though, it was his Sudanese father that gave Oddisee the vinyl that fueled his passion for producing hip-hop music.
