A shrewd lyricist and observer, Oddisee has always been steadfast in his quest to expose uncomfortable truths — some that he’s faced as an artist and others he’s faced as a Sudanese-American Muslim. In “Things,” the lead single from his forthcoming album The Iceberg, he delivers a bit of both, but this time the stakes seem a little higher.

“Things,” a bright and bouncy dance track, adds a new color to Oddisee’s production palette — but the song’s energy belies its lyrical content. It’s a confessional that finds the Maryland-born, Brooklyn-based rapper-producer wrestling with his status, summed up by a nod to The Notorious B.I.G.’s “mo’ money, mo’ problems” mantra. Much of Oddisee’s career has been marked by that dilemma, and here, he likens it to a horror-film cliché: He’s unable to resist the urge to run towards the screams.
