Are you an old-school devotee with a penchant for gritty boom-bap beats, classic turntablism and aggressive punchline lyricism? Then Stop What Ya Doin’ this very instant and take a listen to Apathy‘s latest single—you will not be disappointed. The latest leak off the Connecticut repper’s forthcoming full-length, this stripped down cut is low-concept but high-impact; after a formal introduction from the legendary DJ Premier, the Get Busy Committee member proceeds to the lace the legendary DJ/producer’s “rough, rugged and raw” instrumental (prominently featuring a Humpty Hump sample—well played, sir) with an avalanche of erudite boasts and absurd juxtaposiitons: “I’m like Genghis Khan on the back of a horse, or Billy Joel with a bottle of Jack on the dash of the Porsche.” Fellow Demigod Celph-Titled guests, showing off his hella fide alliteration game on the middle before joining the headliner for a little line-trading on the back end. Like what you’re hearing? More is on its way; due on August 23, Ap’s Honkey Kong LP will come packed with all the “hardcore, classic” hip-hop goodness heads could ask for.
