From the murky depths of unexplored sea waters, Apathy takes you on a nautical journey with his first all-instrumental project. After years of producing beats for himself, Demigodz, Army of the Pharaohs, R.A. The Rugged Man, Ras Kass, Styles of Beyond and many others, Apathy has finally put together a collection of 15 all original instrumentals. Painstakingly sequenced, mixed and engineered to keep your speakers thumping, this sub-aquatic album showcases Ap’s sharp skills behind the boards as he delivers his best sonic works without words. Whether you just like to vibe out to hip hop beats or practice your own MC skills over chunky production, this project is a welcomed refreshment in the instrumental hip hop genre.
CZARFACE (Wu-Tang Clan’s Inspectah Deck & 7L & Esoteric) is back! Fresh off the heels of their collaboration with Marvel Comics the trio continues to combine music and art with their latest release “A Fistful of Peril.” Building on an already rock solid foundation with two critically acclaimed albums, “A Fistful of Peril” features some of the groups most cohesive material. The chemistry between the hungry-as-ever Deck and Eso overflows as the two mc’s trade lines, humor and plenty of razor sharp lyrics over the backbone of 7L production. “A Fistful of Peril” in a word? “Excelsior!”
Upcoming release on Dirty Version Records! New album from Styles of Beyond member, Ryu, entirely produced by Divine Styler, except for the last track which is produced by Apathy. Reuniting with Divine Styler on production was a no-brainer for the ‘San Fernando Valley Rambo’ as he explains “Divine Styler was instrumental in the development of the Styles of Beyond sound. So it was a very natural process when working together on this album.”

Championing his fifth solo album in a consistent and longstanding career (as well as best buddies with us here at UGHH!), Apathy delivers a plate served up with only the finest ingredients that you’d expect from a seasoned lyricist and producer. On this outing, Ap takes you through the perils of the current state of hip hop, corporate phonies and idiotic pop culture. Sprinkle in some trippy tales with vivid imagery plus the right amount of braggadocio verbiage, and the Demigodz frontman brings you full circle via industry rule number 4080.

This new gem by Apathy is in stock and shipping now on all physical formats! Apathy is that dude. Not only is he one of the best out there on the mic, but he produced this entire album as well. He’s good looking, his wife looks like a super model (I’m still waiting for the wifey swap invite, Ap), and he has fans all over the world. Best of all… he’s been good friends with us here at UGHH for over 16 years. He is the only hip hop artist to invite me (Quest) to his wedding where I got to smoke blunts with Celph Titled and Motive, sing “Dwyck” at the top of my lungs with Ryu (of Styles of Beyond), and much more… a memory I will never forget. If there is anyone in hip hop you should support, it’s Apathy (and Celph Titled of course). Apathy is a class A rapper (see what I did there?).
Vinyl LP and Cassette Translucent Green also available for pre-order.
