This week we welcomed D.C.-via-Maryland’s Oddisee to the studio to take us through the #SixSongScenario, where artists, DJs, and music aficionados tell the story behind their favorite tracks and explain what these songs mean to them.

 

We had a blast playing his amazing selection of six records, plus we talked about writing raps while walking around your city, the importance of a message in your music, and where to get the best shrimp.
