Sudanese-American hip hop artist Oddisee's new EP, ''AlWasta,'' takes its title from the Arabic coloquial term used to mean (to use colloquial English) ''the plug.'' The term ''wasta'' comes from the Arabic word ''wasat,'' meaning ''middle'' or ''middleman,'' and describes a member of the community who acts as a connector using their wealth of social currency. Understanding the value of social currency & how to use it (for better or worse) is what Amir Elkhalifa aka Oddisee focused on as the primary inspiration for his writings. Produced, mixed, and mastered by Oddisee.
