Has-Lo is on some shit with this, but I must admit this is not one of Apollo Brown stronger beats though. LOL. Check it for yourself.
Finally it is here and I am technically blogging this before I even listen because of my faith in the label and the artists involved with the Ugly Heroes brand. I am on track 2 and so far it’s heat! Listen with me. Read this, love this, spread this.
An Ugly Hero is considered a myth. Growing up, the heroes we saw in cartoons and movies were perfectly chiseled, intelligent, and had senses none of us possess. An UGLY HERO is the everyday blue collar individual that makes the world go ’round. These are the heroes that work hard all day, everyday to help ensure that the lives around them are taken care of, and do it all without recognition. They wear themselves into the ground and sacrifice vanity for family.
Apollo Brown, Verbal Kent, and Red Pill are UGLY HEROES.
Skyzoo seems to always hit the ball outta the park with his visuals. With the wide lens and the black and white images, you can’t go wrong with this music video. This guy is quickly becoming one of my favorite undergound MCs because the work ethic matches the level of talent and that rarely happens in the music industry. Way to go Skyzoo, keep doing the damn thang, man! Read this, love this, spread this.
Chicago renaissance man Thaione Davis has dropped another work of art and it is indeed a banger! This guy does everything from music videos to making beats and of course spits rhymes! Featuring a few Chicago greats to lend a 16 or two as well, everyone from Adad, to Race of Primeridian to even The 80′s Babies, Rashid Hadee and many more! This right here needs to be spread far and wide. Real music!
From the eagerness of adolescence, young adult struggles, to the balance of manhood in urban warfare, all delivered with just as much, if not more, passion and hunger as his previous. The kind exhibited when someone first come into the game. “Me, all I got is broke pockets with the ambition of a rocket. Heat seeking”. Yet he is far from a rookie and there’s undeniable growth and maturity, like that of a man who’s walked through the fire, lived and not ashamed. Not big on comparing but many times as I listened, I likened his raw and honest lyrical delivery to the better moments of Tupac. And did I mention that all of the beats are HEATERS. A lot of grit, a lot of bang and a lil sum’nin for the “hey day” enthusiast. Neck brace required. From the rough and smooth, this is how hip hop was to evolve.
