I know I'm semi-late on this and its not really new music any more as I remember seeing it on some blogs a while back, but I somehow just stumbled on this while surfing around this morning. Great instrumental hip hop vibes PERFECT for your weekend listening pleasure. Here's an explanation of the project:
"As a musician, life is often lived on the road. Each city leaves its imprint on the artist as they develop their craft. Touring, recording, and keeping up with friends and family took Oddisee beyond his hometown of Washington DC to Australia, Europe, Asia, Africa, and South America. From cities like East Africa's Khartoum in Sudan, to cosmopolitan jaunts like Paris & Tokyo. The influence of these travels can be heard on every one of the 24 tracks included on Traveling Man. Each track was produced while Oddisee stayed in the city it was titled after. The result is a 24 city sonic tour of the world. Oddisee sees the world, so that you can hear it."
