RPL-MOJOsml

We said that the debut solo album by London’s Apex Zero was one of the biggest for UK hip hop in 2013, and it appears that the internationally renowned publication that is MOJO Magazine would agree.

In their current edition celebrating their 20th anniversary, they have afforded “Reality Provoking Liberation” a 4 star review, describing it as a “DIY stunner” which will have “Fans of Triple Darkness, Dead Prez and Immortal Technique piqued by the arrival of fresh political rap blood

It’s been a key underlying factor in the level of media interest created by the album from the rapper & producer, the mix of political and social issues addressed with a fierce delivery and conscientious lyricism, once a standard for the genre but a rarer entity in recent times. But green shoots of recovery are evident in releases from both sides of the Atlantic in the past couple of years, and Apex Zero has emerged as another new name adding his own weight to the re-establishment of the anti-establishment.

The album is out now, available to buy in digital and CD format HERE
