Oddity Orwell / Bio

Oddity Orwell is from SouthernCalifornia.In the early to mid 90’s Oddity and his local partners in crime were gaining a reputation through ill graffiti styles. The kids in the diverse neighborhood were united by their love for HipHop but many kids were being chewed up by the streets they loved so much. Many fell victim to the drugs, violence, gangs and the cold jail cells,but HipHop changed that. In 96,Oddity, Castor Pollux and Enyl8 started Casualties of Emotion and began freestyling at every open mic and house party they could find. That same year, Oddity visited the legendary HipHop club "Unity" in downtown LA.The mission: to represent the essence of HipHop Kulture and through the music spread the truth. For the next 3 years Oddity, Castor, Enyl8 and Iota worked on perfecting their skills and mastering the craft of Emceeing. In 2004 Oddity Orwell and Castor Pollux formed an alliance with local DJ and production team Dysposable Heroes (DJ Zero & J Mass) to form their own record label Gutter Water Music.Oddity has opened up for some of hip hop’s best such as: Chino XL,Psycho Realm,Ras Kass,Alkoholiks,Lyrics Born,Murs,Eligh,Anticon,Project Blowd, Aceyalone,Abrude, Immortal Technique,Defari,Crayz Walz, The Visonaries and many more.
