Apollo Brown's not only one of the absolute dopest producers to emerge over the last few years, but he stays one of the busiest. Through his signing with Mello Music Group, the Detroit producer has recently supplied us with brilliant full-length collabos with OC and Guilty Simpson, while also finding time to remix Ghostface Killah's latest effort into what's probably the best albums of 2013 so far. 

Brown's latest endeavour is as one third of UGLY HEROES, supplying all production for emcees Verbal Kent (Chicago) and Red Pill (Detroit). While the album doesn't quite match the heavy hitting genius of the three aforementioned LP:s, it's a grand journey with a lot of soul and important topics aimed at the everyday man. The atmosphere reminds me of something in between The Left's "The Gasmask" and Diamond District's "In The Ruff", so of course you need to hear this ASAP. The album was released today to iTunes, but if you´re looking for physical copies there's still a small wait left - the CD drops the 28:th, while the 2xLP set (complete with bonus 45) will be available June 11. Check the album track "Hero's Theme" below.

  1. I don't think there is best album 2013 so far. There are many of them. To condiser someones work the best isn't the end. There are others who can top right now the album.

    Everything bases in the competition on development. So there isn't a ultimate album.
    We saw this on Nas. The debut was a classic, but the third album didn't match the first. In the 21 century the artist went along with very good albums. To hold a powerfull level isn't not sure in no time. No one knows what his ability to produce standout music can go.

    There is no such thing as constant power. Life is based on dualism.
