Biography All Music Guide

All Music Guide:

Born in Washington, D.C., to a Sudanese father and an African-American mother, Amir Mohamed grew up in Maryland, influenced by soul and rap as well as the myriad of musicians on both sides of his family. He was all set to attend the Art Institute of Philadelphia, however, to pursue visual art when a friend of his introduced him to hip-hop producing. He was so enamored by it that he changed his plans and concentrated on making beats, ending up with the track "Musik Lounge" on DJ Jazzy Jeff's 2002 record, Magnificent. Part of the Low Budget crew, which included fellow D.C. area MC and producers Kenn Starr, Cy Young, and Kev Brown, Oddisee released his solo debut, Foot in the Door, mixed by Jazzy Jeff, on Halftooth in 2006.

Who Is…Oddisee

By Christina Lee, Contributor

Oddisee now lives in Brooklyn, but his solo rap debut references details of his Maryland upbringing, such as his hometownLargoand his Washington, D.C.-based crew Low Budget Collective. While the DMV (D.C.-Maryland-Virginia) tri-state area isn't exactly known for its mass production of hip-hop greats, the half-Sudanese producer-emcee made himself known right where he was, as he churned out beats, lent raps to founding D.C. trio Diamond District and helped oversee independent hip-hop label Mello Music Group.
