Through a raw, unfiltered lens, Oddsmokee narrates the harrowing consequences of relying on substances for solace. The album serves as both a personal catharsis and a vehicle for initiating conversations about mental health and addiction.
The eclectic album showcases Oddsmokee’s versatility, weaving between singing and rapping to provide a multifaceted view of his experiences. With tracks like “11:15,” Oddsmokee questions the very essence of his existence in a whirlwind of cocaine-fueled music creation. “A && C” delves into the psyche of someone ensnared by their chosen substances, grappling with the idea of self-helplessness. “Overdosaa” serves as a stark warning, painting a vivid picture of the grim reality awaiting those who persist down this treacherous path. This musical odyssey is not merely an artistic endeavor, but a platform for raising awareness about the perils of substance abuse. Oddsmokee, driven by a desire for change, seeks to dispel the glamorization of drugs and illuminate the shadows they cast on lives. Through each track, he urges listeners to recognize their own struggles and confront them head-on.
