Oddisee has dropped a new video for the track “You Grew Up”

“You Grew Up” was featured on the album The IcebergOddisee’s 11th studio album, and is an emotional look at growing up in America. The song share 3 stories of how experiences during the formative years when we’re growing can create permanent and lasting personality traits that we’re never able to shake. Some of those paths can have shocking and tragic conclusions.

Given what’s happened in Las Vegas: this message, song and video are more poignant than ever.

The animated video was directed by Eugene & Louise a Belgian based production team founded by the husband and wife team of Glenn D’Hondt and Sylvia Meert.

When asked if the first verse was shared from his personal life Oddisee says:

“Yes and no. I did start off my early childhood in Silver Spring, Md. And my best friend at the time was white. He was a kid who was really into going into sediment ponds and catching snakes and frogs. […] And that was my first interaction with a cultural difference and us being both very American.”
