The first notable release of 2012 belongs to Baltimore’s own, UllNevaNo. He releases The Color Brown Part II mixtape where he flows over Apollo Brown instrumentals. Ordinarily I wouldn’t mention a project where it’s an emcee flowing over another artist’s instrumentals but the quality of the project is incredible. Also, Apollo Brown hasn’t gotten the credit he deserves as a dope producer and these beats really continue to showcase his talents, as UllNevaNo puts his own lyrical twist to them.
UllNevaNo sounds so comfortable and dope over this collection of beats. It’s hard to pick favorites but I really like Who You Know, Importance, and Just Listen. Just Listen features one of my favorite Apollo Brown beats. It’s just so beautiful, soulful, and boom bap all at the same time.
There are two things that I hope happen with this project. 1) I hope you download this project immediately, and get familiar with both Apollo Brown and UllNevaNo. 2) I hope Apollo Brown hears this and he decides they need to do an original project together. It just sounds like it needs to be done.
