Producer:
Evidence
Album:
Honkey Kong LP

For an emcee to say so much in the first verse, what the hell could he have left for the rest of the song? But this is Apathy we’re talking about, and he doesn’t let us down lyrically as he makes himself at home over an Evidence driven beat, on self-reflective song Check to Check. Far too often in rap, emcees talk about all the money they have; Apathy talks about the lack there of, and I can relate. A lot of artists are living check to check and spending money irresponsibly, and perhaps Apathy is one of the first to admit it… on a record that is. “I’m contemplating changing jobs if the monies better / Cause making paper off of rap now is tougher than leather / I love music forever / But we can’t stay together / I told myself I’d never ever ever ever ever ...” Add in a Andre 3000 sampled hook -  “Till the end of the week I live by the beat like you live check to check” - and you’ve got another reason to check out Apathy’s Honkey Kong LP, due out August 23.
