iTunes Review

Hailing from Connecticut, Apathy got his start in the late-‘90s indie-rap explosion, appearing on numerous 12-inches and compilations with his brethren in the Demigodz collective. He was on the Jedi Mind Tricks debut album, is a member of both Army of the Pharoahs and Get Busy Committee, and has recorded extensively with Celph Titled and 7L & Esoteric, among others. After a short stint on Atlantic Records (he was granted a release after creative differences), he's been steadily dropping EPs and mixtapes ever since. Honkey Kong is his third proper solo album (following Eastern Philosophy and Wanna Snuggle?, and it finds him sticking to his standard M.O. of multilayered, densely worded, punchline-infused wordplay set to nose-breaking snares and freaky chopped samples. A quality mix of griminess, comedy, social commentary, and straight B-boy funk, this is arguably his best work to date. Check out "It's Only Hip Hop," "Check to Check," "Army of the Godz," and the Breakfast Club-channeling "East Coast Rapist."

DOPE

This is the hiphop album of the year. Believe that.

Best Hip-Hop Album of 2011

August is just about over and while there have been a slew of excellent hip-hop albums this year (The Family Sign, All 6's & 7's, A World With No Skies 2.0, & Watch the Throne) Connecticut MC Apathy has crafted the finest release of the year and I don't see anyone putting out a better album for the rest of 2011. This is a 21st century take on 90's boom-bap and the results are breathtaking. Throw this on and prepare for a sore neck the rest of the week. CLASSIC!
