Another dope release from Mello Music Group!!
This one excites me because both of these artists are "killin". It was a genius idea to release a project that highlights the talents of Apollo Brown and OC. I've been dying to hear new music from OC, an affiliate of the D.I.T.C. group that dropped science into the hip hop world in the 90's that made profound influence in the hip hop game. OC stepped on the scene blazin with the "Times Up" hip hop anthem.(sigh) Memories! Apollo Brown's production is "supersick". He's been at this thing since 1996.
In his earlier years he collabed with Detroiters Finale, MaGestiK LeGenD, Danny Brown, Paradime, and Kam Moye aka Supastition. He went on in 2009 to win the Detroit Red Bull Big Tune Championships and competed in the national finals. Apollo then signed as a producer with the Mello Music Group in December of 2009 and its been crazy every since. In 2010, his collaborations included the Brown Study album as half of the group UPS with Boog Brown, a new album from Daily Bread with Rochester, New York MC Hassaan Mackey, and the long-awaited Gas Mask LP as one-third of The Left with DJ SoKo and MC Journalist 103.
I'm on the edge of my seat, waiting to bless my ears for what's in store. Below you can listen and purchase this beautiful illustration of real hip hop.
