Mello Music Group :: Helpless Dreamer (LP)



For those who have heard of Oddisee, a producer that has been on this blog a couple times, you will be interested in this.  The following is an excerpt from the Mello Music Group Myspace page:
Like Lao Tzu in Hiphop Mello Music Group provides music for the soul, from the heart of American culture, opening the realm of the intelligent Hiphop experience through melodic evocations, beats that corroborate the truth, and voices that roar above the rising void and impose order on the terrible & triumphant moments of everyday life. This is the compelling sound of Mello Music Group.

For more music from the group check here
