Connecticut’s world famous rhyme wrecker returns with a warm hug and a deadly snakebite on his sophomore full length album, Wanna Snuggle? Apathy, known as lead MC of the indie fan favorite Demigodz clique as well as a member of Jedi Mind Tricks’ Army of the Pharaohs crew, follows up 2006’s well-received Babygrande Records Eastern Philosophy debut with a brand new masterpiece of 21 songs.
Painstaking lyricism, strangleholding mic presence, high caliber rap flows and upper echelon neck-snapping production round out this release in true Demigodzilla fashion. Some of the highlights include the uptempo “Shoot First”, which is a Mike Shinoda produced track featuring the legendary B-Real (of Cypress Hill) and Celph Titled, as well as a collaboration with J-Live called “This Is The Formula”. Little Brother’s own Phonte makes a cameo on “True Love”, and some soulful hooks are laced across the album courtesy of Chip-Fu (of Fu-Schnickens) and Wu-Tang vocalist Blue Raspberry. Also contributing a major factor to the album is singer Holly Brook, best known for Fort Minor’s chart topping “Where’d You Go” single and video. Fort Minor, Get Busy Committee, Demigodz and AOTP family are definitely in full effect throughout the project, including Ryu (of Styles of Beyond), Motive, Emilio Lopez, King Magnetic, Veze Skante and more.
The bulk of production is handled by Apathy himself, who has been building up a production resume producing for Tiye Phoenix, Styles of Beyond, 7L & Esoteric, Eternia, and upcoming albums from Cypress Hill and Edo G. This is an impressive body of work and is much anticipated by faithful fans that Apathy has steadily accumulated from his long list of indie vinyl era 12″ singles, album-like mixtapes, epic double disc It’s the Bootleg compilation and relentless domestic and international touring. Sure to be contender for Hip Hop album of the year, Wanna Snuggle? smashes completely through the sophomore jinx and delivers timeless rap music for you and yours.
