It’s been a minute since we last heard from Sudanese­-American artist Oddisee, but thankfully that all changes here today. Out of nowhere, the Brooklyn native decides to surprise fans by releasing a new free EP called Alwasta.

Produced entirely by himself, here’s the story behind the 7-track effort… “'Al­wasta' takes its title from the Arabic colloquial term used to mean “the plug.” The term “wasta” comes from the Arabic word “wasat,” meaning “middle” or “middleman,” and describes a member of the community who acts as a connector using their wealth of social currency. Understanding the value of social currency & how to use it (for better or worse) is what Amir Elkhalifa aka Oddisee focused on as the primary inspiration for his writings."

Tracklist
1. Asked About You
2. No Reservations
3. Strenght & Weakness
4. Wouldn't Be Surprised
5. Lifting Shadows
6. Catching Vibes
7. Slow Groove
