APOLLO BROWN & CHE NOIR FEAT. BLACK THOUGHT – HUSTLE DON’T GIVE

Apollo Brown has announced another collaboration album. This time, the Detroit producer is working with Buffalo’s Che Noir on As God Intended for a July 10th release. For their first offering, the duo are joined by Black Thought on “Hustle Don’t Give.”

“This joint is a favorite of mine, and it was also the last beat I made for the album. I love how Che’ comes at you from all different angles, and gives the imagery that’s needed in this game” Apollo stated to OkayPlayer.   “It was an honor to have one of the best to do it, Black Thought, on this record as well, giving his take on the grind.”

BLACK THOUGHT – NOIR (PRODUCED BY ADRIAN YOUNGE)

Adrian Younge provides the musical backing for Black Thought to paint his lyricism with “Noir.”

“The obsession with race is disturbing to those that wish to divert attention away from the unyielding attributes that have plagued black America,” Younge says. “However, we all must realize how such disenfranchisement has negatively affected us all. We are all equal and we are all human; we all have something to say and something to contribute; essentially, we all deserve to be heard, recognized and respected. That being said, our celebration of Black History Month brings us closer to understanding the struggles and contributions African Americans have made in making America what it is.”
