Discovery: Capital Ode

Capital Ode is a New York-based rapper who has a couple of messages to deliver to his community in new track Dire Times (Together, We In).

By Graeme Smith

Ode delivers free-flowing conscious hip-hop in Dire Times. Preaching togetherness, his message is specifically aimed at those around him. His first plead is to black men to be better to black women and his second is in support of the LGBTQ community. His points are made eloquently and confidently and the chorus of Dire Times will stick with you.

Now based in Brooklyn but originally from Toronto, Canada, Ode has been putting out music for five years. The experience shows through how polished Dire Times sounds. You can check it out below.
