Oddisee: You Know Who You Are (Acoustic)

Oddisee continues to display his talents after the release of his stellar debut album, People Hear What They See, with the acoustic rendition of ‘You Know Who You Are’ featuring the vocal-stylings of singer Olivier Daysoul. The focus and delivery Oddisee displays in this video is truly remarkable.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this version of the Oddisee track.♥

Definitely one that I’ve been listening to on a daily basis since its release. The message behind this song is so strong and someone definitely comes to mind whenever I listen to it. There are times when music has to be stripped down to its bare essence, and this acoustic version had me at the first strum of that guitar.

Hip Hop artist Oddisee delivers and has crafted three story-telling verses that the listener needs to break down. Olivier Daysoul breaks down the intro soulfully and captivates the listener at the first note.

[Hook]
You know who you are
You know who you are
I ain’t gotta name names
(You know who you are)
I ain’t gotta name names
(You know who you are)
I ain’t gotta name names
(You know who you are)
You know who you are

[Verse]
You were there from the start
You told me what ever I’m doing to do it from the heart
I was pursuing a dream that was cloaked in the cloth of the uncertain
Making money, music, and art, and it wasn’t perfect
You told me whatever’s worth it is worth hurting
Double edge seemingly sharp, rather unnerving
