Oddisee-Mental Liberaton Re-release

One of my favourite Producers and MCs these days is the dope Washington D.C born and Maryland raised Oddisee (Diamond District, Ave.To, Trek Life and Oddisee, Stik Figa and Oddisee etc) who released my top Hip Hop instrumental LP of 2010...has re-released the dope Mental Liberation album, which was originally released in 2009 with 3 bonus tracks...

The bonus material includes two instrumentals: one which was previously exclusive to Japanese vinyl is called “Is That Why You’re Here?” and is a particularly jazzy track, heavy on the horns; the second is also horn heavy with an irregular drum pattern and is entitled “Revival”. The third bonus cut is a track Oddisee produced that Motion Man laid 3 verses over called “Holding It Back".
In addition, there is of course the classic 2009 producer’s album, Mental Liberation, which features J-Live, Rapper Pooh, Georgia Anne Muldrow, MED, Black Milk, Finale, Invincible, LMNO, Hassaan Mackey, Prince Po, Dudley Perkins, Silent Knight, XO, yU, Trek Life, Kenn Starr, Stik Figa, Bilal Salaam, DJ Clear, and DJ Romes (Lootpack)
