Oddisee - "Back of My Mind (feat. Paolo Escobar)" from "Tangible Dream" Directed by Jeremy Ian Thomas Director of Photography: Emrys Roberts First Assistant Camera: Alex Sandberg Mello Music Group 2014. About "Tangible Dream": I live in a gentrified part of Brooklyn, I eat out several times a week, I travel the world sampling the best that cities across the globe have to offer. Do I live in a penthouse loft? Am I dinning in five stars restaurants? Can you only find me in the most exclusive areas? Do I own a jet? The answer to all the above is most certainly no. I'm just a regular man from Prince George's county, Maryland that figured shit out. I discovered that I can make a career in an arena dominated by artists that sell false dreams. I realized that although the masses may not know of my body of work, it doesn't take the whole world to have the world I want. Tangible Dream is a mix-tape dedicated to the deconstruction of our traditional ideas of success & shedding light on the possibility of a sustainable rap life. These rhymes were written in economy class seats, these beats were produced on long bus trips & these songs were recorded in airbnb apartments. All I want to do is make music for a living so that I can live to make music. The only dreams I'm interested in are the ones I can grasp. It just so happens that anything you want bad enough can be obtained. Perhaps the world may never know of my accomplishments but accomplishments they are nonetheless. http://twitter.com/Oddisee http://twitter.com/MelloMusicGroup http://facebook.com/Oddisee http://facebook.com/MelloMusicGroup360 www.mellomusicgroup.com firstname.lastname@example.org
