Below is the Ryan Calavano directed music video for the new Oddisee track "Brea" from the artist's brand new album The Odd Tape that arrived into Amoeba this week in CD and vinyl versions: regular LP and  Deluxe LP. The 55 minute, twelve track album from the renowned Brooklyn based, Maryland hip-hop artist was released by Mello Music Group yesterday. A day earlier the video, that appears below along with other new videos, was published by director Calavano who described the Oddisee accompanying visual as a "tribute to the unseen soul......a companion piece to living."

This latest Oddisee album that's technically a mixtape comes from the multi-talented emcee and producer who is both a solo artist and member of the hip-hop trio Diamond District. It is his follow up to 2015's The Good Fight. Unlike that last album, The Odd Tape is an all instrumental outing. Also yesterday Mello Music released Oddisee's seven-track EP Alwasta that he had originally posted for free online a few months back. 

Also released yesterday by Mello Music was a reissue with updated cover art of the 2000 released album Pimp To Eat by the Analog Brothers featuring Kool Keith and Ice T that originally dropped on Ground Control/Nu Gruv. Meantime below is the brand new music video for "Black Mass" from talented Wexford, Ireland hip-hop artist Rob Kelly. It's taken from his latest album Kel Jefe that's yet to be released it in physical format via Soulspazm Records who are also responsible for the new album from legendary emcee talent Craig G, I Rap And Go Home.

The video for the retrospective album track "Long Time" by Craig G, who came to fame as part of the Juice Crew, is also below to view along with the video for "Eyes" by Homeboy Sandman. Published this week, the Pace Rivers directed music video from the prolific NY hip-hop lyricist is culled from the emcee's recently released Stones Throw album Kindness For Weakness (also avail in LP format). Also below is the audio for "Don't Touch That Dial" by Apathy and featuring both Ras Kass and O.C.
