With his “Odebear” remix, 19-year-old Harlem resident Ro Ransom has done exactly what needed to be done: he rapped over “Odebear.” Purity Ring‘s gothic pop cut is one of the best songs of 2012 so far, but that beat was ideal for a hip-hop twist, and Ro steps up. Here’s the video, contrasting your typical urban rap-associated environment with a more natural setting.

With the video Ro Ransom has announced the release date of his first solo project, Ransomnia. Look out for that to drop July 2nd.

You ever had a dream that was real nice, then woke up and had to go back to real life?
