    “There are cities that get by on their good looks, offer climate and scenery, views of mountains or oceans, rockbound, or with palm trees. And then there are blue collar cities like Detroit, that have to work for a living. Cities that rely on the toughness and resiliency of their people. Cities that will not quit. Detroit has an unmistakable soul; nobody can duplicate what we give to the world.” - Sincerely, Detroit

    Detroit has an indelible legacy in hip-hop. From artists like J Dilla to Black Milk, from Denaun Porter to Apollo Brown, Detroit's music has a sound unlike any other. When Apollo Brown set out to create the tribute to his home, he knew he needed to do the city justice.

    Featuring over fifty Detroit artists, Apollo Brown’s new double disc album, “Sincerely, Detroit,” is a love letter to the culture. From different eras and different walks of life, veterans and newcomers alike lend their styles and deliveries to the twenty-one track album. Featuring artists like Royce Da 5’9”, Black Milk, Trick Trick, Elzhi, Slum Village and many, many more, “Sincerely, Detroit” is a nearly comprehensive look at the styles and flavors of Detroit.

    While the world watches Detroit for influence, Apollo is back to remind people that Detroit sets a standard for others to follow and is a creative haven for Hip-hop.

    “Nobody can duplicate what we give to the world.” - Apollo Brown

    Shoutout to Mello Music Group & Apollo Brown for giving A-OK the blessing to post these up!

    Buy the album here:

    Thirty Eight sounds like Detroit transitioning from Heroin to Crack in the late 70s and early 80s.

    Apollo Brown's Thirty Eight is a contemporary throwback, inhabiting the realm of reverent reinvention and innovation. It deftly bridges the gap between '70s Blaxploitation soundtracks (e.g. Curtis Mayfield or Marvin Gaye) and the hip-hop records that sampled from them.

    The tracks on Thirty Eight are presented in gritty, heavily saturated Technicolor, the scratches and cigarette burns as purposeful as they are happily accidental. These are suites sounding from long barrels held by lone men lurking in grimy project hallways. Tinged with revenge and regret, shrouded in thick tendrils of hollow-point smoke, the songs have all the makings of an epic gangster tragedy. They're also great when paired with anything Raymond Chandler.

    Crackle and sample hiss run like electric current throughout, charging the record with a retro feel and resonant warmth. Yet these qualities are only secondary to Brown's impeccable ear for instrumentation. Thirty Eight is full of funk, soul, jazz, blues, hip-hop, and everything in between. The bluesy guitar twang of slow-burner Black Suits and the lush, orchestral strings of The Warning are just two examples of the depth and diversity Brown brings to the table.

    All singing on the album comes in the form of brief samples, some high-pitched and sped up, others left untouched. Taken together, they amount to glimpses of an emotionally affecting narrative, enabling the listener to fill in the plot and words between the booms and baps.

    The new album Anchovies from Detroit's Apollo Brown and Fresno's Planet Asia isn't for everybody. It's lo-fi, nasty, and minimalist to the extreme. But for some, it's absolutely perfect. Stripped down to accentuate Asia's bars, Apollo Brown lays a gorgeous backdrop for gutter tales.

    About The Album
    Recorded and produced in Detroit, “The Easy Truth,” is the perfect distillation of hiphop influences. Every moment on the album is a loaded question, a perspective positing a notion of truth, the convergence of grit and symphony.

    Joining the artists on the record are Joell Ortiz, Westside Gunn, Stalley, Conway and Patty Crash, a reciprocal band of guests that only add depth and richness to the duo’s chemistry. Coming September 30th, “The Easy Truth,” is true to its titular description: honest, fluid, and organic.

    Detroit producer Apollo Brown has made a name for himself as one of Hip-Hop’s most legendary new producers while maintaining a golden era sound. His production credits are a who’s who of Hip-hop greats from Danny Brown to Ghostface Killah, Ras Kass to Westside Gunn. Even Chance the Rapper used a pair of Apollo beats on his debut mixtapes. Known for bringing the best out of musicians, Apollo has a knack for making timeless classics.

    Brooklyn’s Joell Ortiz started on none other than Dr. Dre’s Aftermath label and built a huge buzz in the industry. He’s worked with legends like Just Blaze among others. He then signed to Shady Records as ¼ of the supergroup Slaughterhouse. He’s worked with Hip-Hop titans Eminem, Busta Rhymes, Jadakiss, Akon, and Big Daddy Kane.

    Now the pair of Hip-hop luminaries have their first collaborative album on Mello Music Group. It’s nothing short of a masterpiece: Mona Lisa.

  • Rapper Big Pooh - Augmentation | Official Music Video

    3:10

    Beat box, this is back to the block/ Before every rapper sold rocks/ Before everybody needed rocks in their watch/ Just watch, now it’s all about board rooms and stocks/ Words paint pictures, I’m an artist non-stop/ Raw beats, raps, this is called hip-hop…

    Sometimes you have to destroy and rebuild in order to augment an idea. Augmentation is me destroying the idea that a lot of young cats have about a career in Hip Hop/Rap. We are trained to look at the exceptions and accept them as the standard. I just wanted to share some real game with up and comers, spectators, and those looking to make their mark. - Rapper Big Pooh

    About the Album:
    Lao Tzu claimed that, “Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.” Occasionally, the universe can also stir music from the chambers of the soul. These are the songs tattooed into our memories, torn from headlines and unsettling encounters, intense anthems of immediacy. Soul music.

    You can hear these eternal truths on Words Paint Pictures—Big Pooh’s debut release for Mello Music Group. Over seven songs and two remixes, the North Carolina MC captures the complex agonies of the human condition—specifically the black experience in America over the last several centuries. These are tales of racial profiling and corrupt politicians, reality TV distractions, thieving preachers and rapacious exploitation—all offset by tremendous strength. They are uniquely American stories, chronicling both the damned and hopeful. From bleak circumstances, a profoundly durable human spirit emerges.

    While Pooh sketches in vivid detail, Apollo Brown supplies the canvas. The Detroit-via-Grand Rapids alchemist chops classic soul samples and scratches hooks into bangers—head nodding and hard, but still beautiful. The holy trinity of DJ Premier, Pete Rock and J. Dilla supply divine inspiration. As Pooh spits on “Candlelight:” “this is what they call boom-bap/when they try to find what’s in that backpack.”

    What’s in that backpack is as intangible as the light in the briefcase in Pulp Fiction. It’s a main vein of discontent and mother lode of inspiration. Over a gorgeous antique loop on “Augmentation,” Pooh sketches the duality of the greed-choked world we inhabit, and the sacred feelings he’s bringing back. On “Stop,” he harrowingly chronicles a racist police stop and in the process eulogizes Oscar Grant, Mike Brown, and those exterminated by brutal law enforcement goons. “Promise Land” paints a haunting picture of those “hanging by gold ropes.”

    The guest list helps buoy Pooh and Apollo’s vision into the third dimension. Rass Kass indicts everyone from the media to Obama for the mess we’re in. Gorgeous and raw hooks come from Steve Roxx and Eric “Blakk Soul” Keith.” L’ Orange contributes a remix and Detroit representative Marv Won exhales fire.

    But at heart, you return to the words, the pictures, and the complications inherent in the soul. You might have previously known Big Pooh best for his work in Little Brother, but this is the most powerful music he’s ever made. Mining deeply into the personal, he’s created something profound and universal.

  • Apollo Brown & Ras Kass - How To Kill God | Official Music Video

    4:45

    Directed by Jay Brown and shot in Detroit, How To Kill God captures some of the fallen bastions of America, while Ras & Apollo roam historic sites that have long since been abandoned (the original Model-T assembly line, the outside of a foreclosed Detroit Masonic Temple, and inside a since closed cathedral).

    Ras Kass spits brutal bars that harken back to Nature of the Threat from his original classic Soul On Ice. Meanwhile Apollo Brown delivers soul stirring boom bap at it's best for Ras to lay question after question, and bar after bar of articulate insight into historical facts too often ignored. Don't let the title fool you, it's not Ras & Apollo killing God, it's them exposing the hypocrites standing behind empty dogma.

    About the album:
    After years of mutual respect, circling each other in collaborations, tours, style and respect, two titans of their craft have finally collided in Apollo Brown & Skyzoo’s “The Easy Truth.” The album is everything you’ve dreamt it would be: breakneck instrumentals and syllables crafted to make your head spin. The marriage between Detroit instrumentals and NYC wordplay has never been more cohesive. Themes range from police brutality to NY ambitions; Skyzoo shows you the world the way he sees it.

    Recorded and produced in Detroit, “The Easy Truth,” is the perfect distillation of hiphop influences. Every moment on the album is a loaded question, a perspective positing a notion of truth, the convergence of grit and symphony.

    Joining the artists on the record are Joell Ortiz, Westside Gunn, Stalley, Conway and Patty Crash, a reciprocal band of guests that only add depth and richness to the duo’s chemistry. Coming September 30th, “The Easy Truth,” is true to its titular description: honest, fluid, and organic.

  • Stik Figa - Holding Back Tears | Official Video

    5:04

    Holding Back Tears is a song I wrote as a way to deal with the emotions of loss in the context of my personal experiences as a black man in America. The constant push and pull of what is considered acceptable versus how I feel, and making the right choices for my survival and being able to keep my conscious intact. I'm sure many can relate, so, I thought I would share, and be transparent about it all.

  • Official Apollo Brown Drum Kit - Dirt in The Cracks

    2:19

    Purchase Here:

    Enter Apollo Brown:

    The contemporary producer legend known for his gritty drums and meticulous sample flips, Apollo Brown has produced for the likes of OC, Ras Kass, Joell Ortiz, Ghostface Killah, Skyzoo, Danny Brown, MOP, Roc Marciano, Guilty Simpson, Planet Asia, and Westside Gunn just to name a few

    Apollo states, “When I create music, I’m a firm believer in simplicity, especially when it comes to my drums. I’ve never wanted to take away from the feeling of the sample, so I’ve always kept my drum patterns at a minimum, while still remaining effective.

    With that said, I love good dirty drum sounds, and I’ve been collecting drums for over 20 years. Although I’ve dug up, chopped, and collected thousands of drums, I’ve always found myself gravitating towards a select couple hundred hits that tend to work for me and my particular sound. I’ve decided to box’em up.

    As I share with you this drum kit, I’m also sharing with you the very same drum sounds that I’ve used throughout my career; my personal drum stash that I still use on a day to day basis.

    The only difference is, I’ve kept these hits raw and unprocessed in order for you, as a beat maker, to build them up in your own way.

    There’s nothing flashy about this kit, there’s no gimmicks or reinvention of the wheel, just straight forward gritty drums for the common blue collar producer.

    They’ve worked for me over the years, and hopefully they work for you too.”
