"Oddisee has been making albums for nearly two decades, but he’s had a few missed opportunities along the way that didn’t capitalize on.

Speaking to Bedroom Beethovens last week, the Diamond District rapper/producer reflected on times he could have contributed to commercially successful and critically-acclaimed projects such as Kanye West‘s Graduation, Dr. Dre‘s Compton and Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d city.

“I’ve had so many records that I’ve been asked to be on,” he admitted. “I was asked to be on Graduation. To produce, I was asked to submit tracks to the Compton soundtrack. I was asked to submit tracks to good kid, m.A.A.d city.

Oddisee made sure to clarify there was no ill will toward any of the artists, but he just didn’t have the time to make a lot of these A-list collaborations come to fruition.

“Most of the times, it was just unfortunate circumstance of whenever I was asked to produce something for a bigger artist, I was always on tour and I had no time to do it,” he said. “That was pretty much it. Nothing else. I was like, ‘Oh man, I would love to do this but I’m not gonna be home for another six weeks.'”

Listen to Oddisee’s interview below:

The 37-year-old explained how his creative process didn’t align with shopping his beats as well as not having the right personality leading to productive collaborations.

“My personality type — to shop music you have to be a bit more social,” he said. “You need to meet people, you need to go out, you need to network. I’m terrible at doing those things.”

He continued: “I’m very much turned off by a lot of industry events, sitting on the metaphorical black leather couch in the studio. I like to work alone. I don’t really even have the personality type to be social to really shop beats.”

As far as his own music goes, Oddisee released his new album, To What End, last week (January 20) featuring Freeway, C.S. Armstrong, Phonte and more.

The 16-track LP was released via the rapper’s own Outer Note Label."

Damn I was big on his music years ago

When Kanye started with Yezus, making himself as if he is Jesus, that’s when I discovered this song

I didn’t know he was only 37, thought he was older. So he was 15 when he made this beat and track.

Shocked why lol, he mentioned it in the clip. His personality type and being turned off by industry events.

Any one of those features/collaborations would’ve def propelled him into a new realm tho, maybe “blown up” However, dude shows are legit and his fan base is stronggg


I been saying I was going to get The Good Fight on vinyl, that album was the soundtrack to my life at one point

No regrets and all but damn, that would’ve been major if he appeared on those albums. Successful regardless but would’ve been curious to see what would’ve cooked up.

Since folks are posting tracks…

Oddisee had to clarify/correct things so many times during this podcast

Good interview though. Learned about a new artist from the County, Red, had no idea he was on Jeff’s album, and that he moved away from MMG (the other one).

Ive been tO a couple of Oddisee shows in Oakland. His set sounds just as clear as when you hear it on your system at home.

More rappers should use live bands.

I don't think he would have been like a Drake "blown up" but he could have had a Lupe Fiasco type career where he dropped an underground classic in the views of majority hip hop listeners
