When I listened to this track for the first time it was one of those ever-so rare “Oh shit!” moments. You think you’ve heard it all from Apathy at this point but then he just out does himself, this time over an immaculate Stu Bangas beat. This is simply just beautiful and they have an album dropping on December 9th, so be on guard for that.
A heatrock from Apathy and producer Stu Bangas coming off a forthcoming project. No Time To Waste is ominous. The strings that Stu Bangas puts to work on this track are damn menacing, and made more so with Apathy’s razor-sharp lyricism, and bar work from guest emcee Jadakiss. And his last line, “funerals on zoom” was definitely a way to close out a track. Mic dropped.
This is a favorite.
Apathy’s discography takes up quite a bit of hard drive space on my computer with all the projects he has put out and songs he has done over the years. He’s been one of the most consistently dope emcees over the course of the last decade and a half or more. And now, he’s got a new one coming next Friday, Where The River Meets The Sea. We Don’t Fuck Around is the first single from the project and is self-produced with cuts from Tone Spliff. And nothings changed here…Ap’s flows remain razor sharp, while the production is quite dope.
Well, here we are! Our Top 10 albums from 2018. I literally listened to hundreds of projects this year so giving you a top ten was no easy task considering not only the number of albums but also the quality. And these lists are always prone to spark debate and conversation, but that’s part of the fun, isn’t it? I simply wanted to shine a light on my favorite joints this year and in part give my definitive salute as a fan to these artists and their body of work. Here we go…Enjoy!!
You become instantly aware when Celph Titled and M.O.P. link up with Apathy that the track is going to be on some high octane shit. I mean, has M.O.P. ever done anything low key? Hell nah! And sure enough, you get all emcees firing on all cylinders when it comes to this track.
The Widow’s Son is dropping next Friday. Stand prepared.
Apathy is back with his third single, The Order, from the forthcoming album, The Widow’s Son, which drops on March 2nd. This time he is backed with that prometheus type fire from the one and only DJ Premier. Demigodz and the gawd unite for some serious man business. It’s a great union, as Ap sounds really fluid over the legend’s production. If you aren’t looking forward to this project, then you probably aren’t welcome here.
Apathy is delivering the first single from his forthcoming album, The Widow’s Son. This banger, and it is a true banger, features Apathy unleashing salvo after salvo of bars stating his intention to keep delivering dope music to the masses. If you thought it was over, you thought wrong. Now you know. Production comes from the highly respected and talented Nottz.
Ras Kass launches some trademark social commentary in the form of ill lyricism over this Apathy piano laced rhythm. Joined on the track is the group Coast Contra who flips in English and Spanish and does so with equal parts savageness. I am going to have find out some more about them.
Enjoy the track!
This is the first single from the upcoming Apathy and O.C.’s forthcoming album, Perestroika which is due out next month. That’s pretty exciting news. This song (debuted by DotGotIt) is really dope. I love the horns, the sample, and the beat. And Ap and O.C. seem like a natural pairing, exchanging clever bars and tight rhyme schemes.
