$ODAMAN is ready to make a splash with his first full length tape titled Soda City. The Atlanta bred rapper has been at it for nearly 3 years. He told me that he’s always wanted to take it seriously, but didn’t really commit to his craft until early 2017.
Soda City, which sits at just under 35 minutes, is a valiant effort to showcase the many styles of $ODAMAN. Speaking to the artist unveiled his 3 biggest musical influences; Nudy, Fauni, and Key! I can definitely hear these staples impacting $ODA’s sound, however, he’s still able to provide a refreshing twist and incorporate his own vocal elements.
On tracks like CNN and On The Way, we’re given a taste of vibrant production and addictively melancholic delivery. These songs remind me of SoundCloud’s golden era in a way that still reaches for innovation. Other songs like Lifestyle tap into the melodic edge and provide more insight into what $ODA is sonically capable of. My personal favorite has to be the electric, hype inducing Braveheart which features MDMA.
In all, this project is a great introduction into $ODAMAN’s catalog and what he has to offer. I can definitely recognize the extreme level of potential and professionalism that each record displays. Crack open your favorite can and enjoy the added flavor of Soda City.
