Rapper/producer Oddisee is hitting the road for his 27-date At It Again North American Tour, and he performs at 9:30 Club on Sunday, Dec. 18!

Long celebrated as a deep-thinking emcee that delivers a masterclass in lyricism, while on tour, Oddisee’s hard-hitting bars will be backed by his live band, Good Company.

In addition to old favorites, he’ll also be performing tracks from his just-announced record, To What End (to be released on Jan 20).

Stream “Hard to Tell” by Oddisee on YouTube:

While Oddisee hasn’t released a full-length album since 2017, he’s remained busy with international touring and in 2020 surprise-released the Odd Cure EP, which he wrote and created in the very first days of the pandemic while quarantining from his family. Interspersed with phone calls he recorded as he checked in with his loved ones, Stereogum described it as “gorgeous” and led to Oddisee’s second NPR Tiny Desk appearance. Pitchfork deemed 2017’s trenchant The Iceberg “a focused beam of live-band and hip-hop soul that rattles loudly in our present political moment.”

Born Amir Elkhalifa to a Sudanese father and African American mother in Washington, D.C., Oddisee bore witness to stark inequality early in life and became as political as the city he was raised in. Over the course of his catalog – which includes nearly 20 albums, instrumental tapes and EPs – he addresses the human condition with unwavering conviction and candor, and his work has been celebrated by NPR, Rolling Stone, Complex, Hypebeast, Vice Noisey, and far beyond.
