Imbued with love, honesty, and selflessness. ''The Good Fight'' is virtuousic in its musicality, direct in its language, and infinitely relatable. In a landscape overrun with abstract indulgence and shallow trend-chasers, the Prince George's County, Maryland artist has created a record that reminds you that it's music before it's hip hop. For Oddisee, ''The Good Fight'' is about living fully as a musician without succumbing to the traps of hedonism, avarice, and materialism.

Reviews:

It's music that yields an intangible feeling: the sacral sound of an organ whine, brass horns, or a cymbal crash. It's a meditation on our capacity to love and the bonds binging us together. It's our ambition and greed waring with our sense of propriety--a list of paradoxes we all face when living and striving. Oddisee's production simmers in its own orchestral gumbo. You sense he's really a jazzman in different form, inhabiting the spirit of Roy Ayers and other past greats. The Fader's compared him to a musical MC Escher, hailing his ''grandiose and symphonic sound'' and ''relevant relatable messages.'' Pitchfork praised his ''eclectic soulful boom-bap.'' ''The Good Fight'' acknowledges the stacked odds, but refuses to submit. All tracks produced, mixed, arranged by Oddisee
