APOLLO BROWN & CHE NOIR – FREEDOM

The emcee/producer tandem of Che Noir and Apollo Brown release another joint from their upcoming album As God Intended. “Freedom” is eerily timely considering the state of America with protests still running rampant across the country.

“Freedom’ was a song I wrote at the end of 2019. It was before the George Floyd murder and before all the protesting and looting started happening. It’s a song that I feel like my people needed at the time, not even realizing months later that I would be witnessing the biggest revolution of my lifetime” Che lamented. “The art of war, it’s a meaning behind the message, you don’t need a gun or sword if you treat ya mind as the weapon” is my favorite line in the song. My people have to stay 10 steps ahead mentally in order to fight this battle with the institutional and systemic racism we fight on the daily. Our anger and frustration right now is justified.”

APOLLO BROWN & CHE NOIR – ’94

With As God Intended on the way, Che Noir and Apollo Brown drop “’94” as Noir rhymes about the year that she fell in love with Hip Hop. Arguably one of the best years in the history of Hip Hop, the smooth production allows Che to pay homage to everyone who dropped albums in 1994.

APOLLO BROWN FEAT. BLACK MILK, KETCHPHRAZE & DJ LOS – GOD HELP ME

Apollo Brown will showcase over fifty artists from Detroit on his massive Sincerely, Detroit album to salute the Motor City and the plethora of talent that has come out of the midwest. Before the album drops on October 29th on Mello Music Group, Brown drops the single “God Help Me” that features Black Milk, Ketchphraze and DJ Los.

“There are cities that get by on their good looks, offer climate and scenery, views of mountains or oceans, rockbound, or with palm trees,” Apollo Brown says of the project. “And then there are blue-collar cities like Detroit that have to work for a living. Cities that rely on the toughness and resiliency of their people. Cities that will not quit. Detroit has an unmistakable soul; nobody can duplicate what we give to the world.”

JOELL ORTIZ & APOLLO BROWN – REFLECTION

The duo of Joell Ortiz and Apollo Brown release their third song from their upcoming Mona Lisa album titled “Reflections.”

“It’s a super relatable chill joint. Gotta have a card like this one in every deck,” Apollo Brown told AFH. “I’m pretty sure this was the first song we recorded, so it set an amazing tone for what was to come. Reminiscent thoughts, the feelings of today, and the idea of tomorrow… ain’t no more hungry nights.”
