Single You Out: Apathy – Stomp Rappers (ft. Celph Titled x M.O.P.)

Apathy

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.

Motive – D.N.A. / Pistol Packin’ (feat. Celph Titled) (Video)

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.

Single You Out: Blacastan and Stu Bangas – Nubian Metal (ft. Vinnie Paz and Celph Titled)

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.

Army of the Pharaohs – The Demon’s Blade (Video)

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.

Esoteric & Stu Bangas – The Danger (ft. Vinnie Paz, Celph Titled & Apathy) (Video)

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!

Demigodz – Raiders Cap (Video)

“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.

Note:

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.
