Let’s start this interview off by introducing yourself to the people that don’t already know who you are.
Oddity: We three individuals who’s purpose is to spit and make wild beats and just do what we want
9Stein: Yea my name Kerb call me Kay-9 or 9stein the producer of the group oddity I love to laugh whether im listening to jokes or creackin on people to sum it all up I just like to chill

Nine5Four Magazine Can you tell our readers how did you come up with the name of the group and artist names?
Oddity: kay-9 and Noble was playing around
9Stein: I called myself kay-9 because when I was young I thought every artist had a name with some type of animal name such as Lil Kim The Queen B, Snoop Doggy Dogg, Bow Wow lol I just recently named my self 9 stein why? Cuz I’m a genius…
Noble Da Genius: well to be honest I named my self all types of names as a jit shit I been rapping since the third grade and my name was shorty cuz of my height then I had people call me shorts. But one they in class my Z.C 3 homeboy Luben said I should name myself young noble which I ran with for like a couple of years but then one day I hit a joint and realized hold up that’s that outlaw nigga name I’m like oh shit I gotta change this shit so what I did was kept noble because its part of my last name “Destinobles” and I compared my rhyme skills to it so I just said fuck it Noble The Genius so you could say I’m in both worlds noble the out law and GZA the genius a Wu Tang member fuck it but mainly I Just say noble on tracks
Nine5Four Magazine Can you share with the world what made you decide to get into the music business?
Oddity: we were all making music but we were three blocks apart and when we got together through hood circumstances we got together on tracks
9Stein: I know how to do a lot of things but music is the only one I can tolerate I really just enjoy making beats but I’ll rap if I have to its just writing feels like a chore( lazy voice)
Noble Da Genius: Man since I was a kid I been on this rap shit since the 3rd grade me and Miami artist P.A Teezy always used to sit there and write songs together with another artist name Lizzy Liz who goes by the name of Sweet P and its weird cuz we was a group and because we was so talented we got the opportunity to joined a label but that came out doe-doe so we went our ways. But in my head I was like damn that’s the only thing I’m good in is writing and putting words together and saying it in different ways so I’m a stick to writing and spitten . Shouts out to P.A Teezy and Sweet P we need to bring back the outrageous ones
Nine5Four Magazine Can you tell the people as you were growing up who did you listen to? Who influenced you as an artist and as a group?
Oddity: Noble say Mystikal, Kay-9 say Eminem and Ether say Lil Wayne
9Stein: I was always listening to Eminem growing up that nigga was just so creative and he was white on top of that to me that shit was amazing. Other then that I was always into 80’s music that what really influenced me I just like the synthesized sounds. Phil Collins, queen, David Bowie I could name a lot.
Noble Da Genius: My influence…wow that is a wide range of people well to be honest who really influenced me is Jimmy Dade(dreadwood) and Shady K of the crown boys Miami based rappers that I got to know personally and watching people from my neighborhood out here doing what they gotta do to make a name had me interested and when I asked questions them boys stay schooling me ya feel me….other then that I always listened to them Tupac,Biggie,Mystikal (that’s that nigga), Hotboys, Geto Boys, master P, Eminem (that boy open up my mind to all sorts ideas), Luda, Busta, N.W.A, Trick daddy Uncle Luke,man you could say every rapper got love from my ears…..!!!
Nine5Four Magazine With every new artist, they always say what separates from the next, but keep it 100 with us. What really separates yourself from the next new hip-hop group coming out?
Oddity: You got three different styles in one group and when we come together we bring up a topic and we put our own personal opinion on the topic. Noble is the most aggressive but lyrical he would tell you everything harsh on a intellectual way Ether is punch lines after punch lines so in order to know if he is on the same topic you would have to listen through the punch lines to get his message and kay-9 lol he is the slick one out the group so he in between because he acquire both styles in one
9Stein: We could actually rap and that’s saying a lot….!!! Did you hear the beats we got shits crazy……!
Noble Da Genius: Well every thing I spit I actually do research in it and I make sure I analyze my notions when I spit you feel me. I call my style of rap look it up muzik …lol go listen to the lyrics and revaluate what we saying or look up the names mentioned and you gon be like o shit…!!!
Nine5Four Magazine How did you form Oddity and how did you become a part of the group?
Oddity: We just dropped a few tracks together we dropped “where we at” and we were like we sound really good together as group and there you have it up’s and down’s but we still here cant nothing brake the bond we have when we are cooking something together in stew(studio).
