Today we have another single from the hard hitting duo of Apollo Brown & Skyzoo. The team is back again with assistance from two of the rawest MCs in the game: Westside Gunn and Conway. Skyzoo dances through wordplay like nobody else can while Apollo’s beats establish himself as one of the most elite to ever do it. Every note and syllable reinforces the the pairing’s chemistry. The latest addition to the album’s reveal is a look into the underbelly of New York- a black and white examination of classic styles.
Apollo Brown tells XXL, “Jean Michel stayed absolutely true to himself. Just like us, he made the type of art he wanted to make, even if it was the less popular choice at the time. Look at the impact of his work now though! There’s always a niche audience for what you create, and always a group of people who understand your vision. We, as hip hop artists prove this everyday.”
Skyzoo adds, “Working with West and Con is dope because those guys are like family to me. I’ve been rocking with them since about 2014… When I heard the beat I knew they’d be the perfect match as far as the intensity of the song and the lyrical braggadocio.”
The new album, “The Easy Truth” will be out everywhere September 30th.
About The Album The Easy Truth
After years of mutual respect, circling each other in collaborations, tours, style and respect, two titans of their craft have finally collided in Apollo Brown & Skyzoo’s “The Easy Truth.” The album is everything you’ve dreamt it would be: breakneck instrumentals and syllables crafted to make your head spin. The marriage between Detroit instrumentals and NYC wordplay has never been more cohesive. Themes range from police brutality to NY ambitions; Skyzoo shows you the world the way he sees it.
Recorded and produced in Detroit, “The Easy Truth,” is the perfect distillation of hiphop influences. Every moment on the album is a loaded question, a perspective positing a notion of truth, the convergence of grit and symphony.
Joining the artists on the record are Joell Ortiz, Westside Gunn, Stalley, Conway and Patty Crash, a reciprocal band of guests that only add depth and richness to the duo’s chemistry. Coming September 30th, “The Easy Truth,” is true to its titular description: honest, fluid, and organic.
