Oddisee links up with Toine of DTMD to discuss the concept of progression.
This is my new theme song. One day you're young and don't give a f*ck and the next day you're older with a completely different outlook on life. The things that are important to you as a youngin' tend to mean less. And the things you could have cared less about back in the day are now taking prime real estate in your mind space. When it first happens your natural instinct is to fight it. Then you realize that your stagnating your progression as a person.
Different Now is from Mello Music Group's Helpless Dreamer compilation. You can purchase the track or whole compilation on iTunes or MMG's Bandcamp.
Check out DTMD's The Basics EP while you're at it. I had the pleasure of meeting Toine about a month ago. For a young dude, he's an old soul. His HipHop knowledge is way beyond other 21-year olds I talked to. Our discussion on HipHop was one of the best conversations I've had. But that's not why you should listen to
The most important reason is because it's dope as sh!t. If you love soulful, honest HipHop that takes you back to the that Slum Village, De La Soul sound of the late 90s, then you'll love The Basics. If you don't, you're losing at life. Listen to The Basics, it might change your life.
If that's not enough for you. Go back and check the Diamond District In The Rough credits. You'll see Dunc's name a couple of times. Seriously! Do you really need more reasons?
