Apollo Brown & Ras Kass ft. Pharoahe Monch & Rakaa Iriscience - H20

Posted 2 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
Apollo Brown

Ras Kass is best known for his provocative commentary on social and political issues, but the West Coast mainstay is just as captivating when he’s tackling more personal subject matter. Don’t believe me? Simply take a listen to H20, single numero uno off his upcoming joint full-length with Apollo Brown. Over the Motown beatsmith’s flip of Barbara Streisand’s bittersweet The Way We Were, Ras flips through “misty watercolor memories” of times past. As if his masterful bars weren’t enough, NYC mic-murderer Pharoahe Monch and Dilated Peoples member Rakaa Iriscience jump on board to deliver equally poignant guest verses. Blasphemy is scheduled for independent release Tuesday, October 28. In the meantime, of course, we’ll keep you supplied with the latest news and tunes.
