Reks – “H.I.P.H.O.P.” (Prod. By Apollo Brown) [Video]

You know how this works by now. Reks is that dude! When he drops, drop what you are doing to hear-see-experience what he is doing. Case in point: This “H.I.P.H.O.P.” jawn, another banger from “The Greatest X” (out now).

Rapper Big Pooh – “Stop” feat. Steve Roxx (Prod. By Apollo Brown)

MESSAGE! Video for a deep jawn off Pooh’s “Words Paint Pictures.” Okay, so in this video, Rapper Big Pooh and crew are riding, being followed by the police. Pooh gets pulled over, expecting the worst. Flashes of historic racial injustice obviously run through his head. Expecting to be treated differently because of the color of his skin, the video takes a twist.

What’s so eff’d up (and also a basis for relief): It’s a music video. You KNOW the brothers are gonna be alright. And yet, guaran-damn-teed you WILL get nervous, even worried, about their fate in this vid – getting stopped for driving while Black. Whew! Oh, you can pick up the album via the link below.

Rapper Big Pooh – “Augmentation” (Prod. By Apollo Brown) [Video]

Do you enjoy heavy bass lines, with a knocking beat, paired up with meaningful lyrics?  If that is the case pretty sure you will enjoy this new video for “Augmentation” for Rapper Big Pooh produced by Apollo Brown.  The track is off the upcoming album “Words Paint Pictures” that will be released from Mello Music Group. Here are some lyrics from Rapper Big Pooh that describe this track well …

Beat box, this is back to the block/ Before every rapper sold rocks/ Before everybody needed rocks in their watch/ Just watch, now it’s all about board rooms and stocks/ Words paint pictures, I’m an artist non-stop/ Raw beats, raps, this is called hip-hop…

Red Pill – “All Of Us” (Prod. By Apollo Brown)

a3119738661_10

If Eric Garner looked like me, he would’ve never been killed.
Red Pill

Now THAT’S a powerful opening for some Rhythmic American Poetry. Must be that Red Pill stands for freeing minds from ‘The Matrix’ and letting us see the world for what it is. At least that’s what it seems Red Pill is going in for on this Apollo Brown track. Take a listen to “All Of Us,” and do it again to let it sink in.

Apollo Brown Speaks From Experience: ‘Be Inspired’ And Stay With It (Video)

You gotta keep doing it… If it makes you happy…
Apollo Brown

There’s the wisdom. Whether Apollo Brown ever ‘made it’ or not, life gave him opportunity to chase his dream full-time; after being laid-off from a 9-to-5. No doubt, he was making beats even when he had a day job. He was determined to stay at it. Plus, as he hopes for others out there doing what he had to do (working, living within his means, all while pursuing a music career), he gets fulfillment from his craft. Take heart. Be inspired!

Good let’s get it clip!
