Apollo Brown & Che' Noir

As God Intended

Buffalo & Detroit are America’s broken dream. They are once thriving cities, now known for frigid temperatures and violent crime. The cities were birthed in a different era, forged in fire, built of cold steel. It follows that the rawest hip-hop in recent memory has bled from these two regions. No two artists exemplify this hard truth more than legendary Detroit producer Apollo Brown and Buffalo’s maverick emcee Che’ Noir. The two artists came together to create a sound as natural as calm after the storm.

The soulful, head-nodding production of Apollo Brown has been a staple called on by some of the greatest to ever do it. From GhostfaceKillah to Danny Brown, and from Freddie Gibbs to Chance the Rapper, Apollo Brown’s signature style has become an iconic staple of the culture.

Meanwhile, Che’ Noir has stepped onto the scene as smoothly as any double dutch veteran. Having already worked alongside Benny The Butcher, Kool G Rap, and Fred The Godson, she has emerged as one of the most extraordinary New York talents heard in years.

The pair’s new album, “As God Intended”, drifts up and down city streets and offers a glimpse behind closed doors, telling the stories of gunshots, missing fathers, & playing the system.

The new album from Apollo Brown &Che’ Noir features Skyzoo, Blakk Soul, Planet Asia, Ty Farris, and Black Thought. Coming July 10th on Mello Music Group, it is exactly “As God Intended.”


STAFF COMMENTS

says: Can Apollo Brown put a foot wrong at the moment? Fire LP after fire LP seem to leave this guys studio on an almost monthly basis. I've been vibing off this since hearing it on bandcamp a few weeks ago and eagerly anticipating this gold vinyl edition. Honestly, Apollo is without doubt the hottest in the boom-bap business right now. And with Che' Noir's arresting, sultry, natural attitude and obvious hardship-influenced lyrics this is a match made in ghetto heaven! Already purchased by myself, I suggest you all follow suit!

Marlowe is a collaborative alt-rap project from North Carolina-based hip-hop producer L'Orange and rapper Solemn Brigham. Their unique blend of quick-fire vocals and dusty breakbeats is most well-known on tracks such as "Lost Arts" and "Tales From The East." The project came together in 2018 with the intent of marrying Brigham's lyrics concerning social commentary, police brutality, and poverty with L'Orange's thudding beats and crackling vinyl samples to achieve a new, refreshing take on hip-hop in modern times. Marlowe 2 seeks to continue that legacy.

Blakk Soul

    "Take Your Time" is Blakk Soul's MMG debut and is as musically sophisticated and seasoned as any in the genre. The record's sultry melodies are colorful and refreshing, a dripping wet bedroom masterpiece that combines RnB, NeoSoul, and Hiphop rhythms to perfection.
