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.
First off let me say that Motive’s new album, D.N.A., deserves the review treatment and I am going to get on that as soon as possible. I’ve listened to the joint several times and it is completely solid from start to finish. It’s filled with dope flows and hard hittin’ rhythms. If you are a fan of those things, how could you not love this album?
With this video you get to sample two cuts from the album, the title track and Pistol Packin’ featuring the highly respected Celph Titled. Both tracks get a lot of replay value from me.
I didn’t realize that Blacastan and Stu Bangas had an album in the works (Watson and Holmes). For their first offering, Nubian Metal, it’s an AOTP reunion of sorts with Vinnie Paz and Celph Titled jumping on the track. It’s more of what you have come to expect from the team: that hard-body hip hop. It’s not my favorite track out at the moment, but it still knocks with the best of them.
The album drops July 29th.
The Demon’s Blade is just one of the many bangers that one can find on AOTP’s latest album, In Death Reborn. The team dispenses with the need for a hook on this track and just offer bars only. Leaf Dog formulates the production formula for the team to rock over. If you haven’t copped the album yet…it’s prolly just too late for you.
Video single off of Esoteric and Stu Bangas’ forthcoming album, Machete Mode. Part of the AOTP gang joins Esoteric on the cut in the form of Vinnie Paz, Celph Titled, and Apathy. It incorporates a favorite Walter White turn of phrase from the now officially ended TV show, Breaking Bad. Check it!
This video derives from the forthcoming album from the Suicide Kings entitles, Crown Of Thorns. This track includes heavyweights from the Demigodz camp, Apathy and Celph Titled. It’s some unfiltered, raw hip hop, but it needs to be noted that Ap killed his verse far and beyond. Those bars were impressive.
“Old school…got my Raider’s cap…” That’s the anthem on this cut from the Demigodz impressive KILLmatic album. We’ve talked about it before in the album review, but this track is produced by Apathy, and he did a hella of a job on this joint. The video is also a little old school that features a cameo from Xzibit. Cop this album if you have not already and peep the review.

I was modestly excited about this project. I say modestly because usually when a collective like this comes together for an album the expectations far exceed the product. With that being said, that is not the case with this album. This album is incredibly refined with proper production and scintillating rhyme schemes. KILLmatic is a complete project.
Not since MF Doom has this Scooby Doo sample been used so effectively. If you couple that with the Big Pun sample and the dope flows of The Demigodz, you have a sure shot. The album KILLmatic drops March 5th.
This joint was originally recorded back in 2007, which just goes to show you that music from Apathy and Celph Titled is timeless. The two really are a great combination. This track can be found on the Coalmine Records compilation, Unearthed, which will see the light in early 2013.
