Apathy’s 8th solo album finds him teaming up with renowned beatsmith Stu Bangas to handle the entirety of the LP’s production. The result is a hardcore hip hop opus; uncut and dirty. Flawless emceeing, grimy loops, cracking snares, scratched hooks, and the veteran expertise of not overcomplicating things is what makes this project so beautifully raw. Original fans of Ap with his Demigodz and Army of the Pharaohs counterparts will most appreciate this outing, as he delivers a nonstop barrage of murder-on-the-mic over Stu’s deadliest beats. Even further, having recruited heavyweights like Jadakiss, Black Thought and Pharoahe Monch to collaborate on this project, Apathy shows he can effortlessly shine alongside an elite class of greats. Additionally, the album brings out fellow crewmembers Celph Titled and Esoteric, along with Ap’s Soul Assassins-fam Sick Jacken, and rap phenomenon RJ Payne.
