First broadcast by Canadian station CHRW 94.9 FM on May 16th, The Word is Bond Rap Radio Show welcomed Detroit rapper ZotheJerk as their special guest.

Host Chase March spoke with him ahead of the release of his new album “Black Beach” produced entirely by Winnipeg based Frost Gamble on Friday May 26th.

During the interview they discuss how being outspoken can be both a curse and a blessing, the importance of life-long learning, being authentic in hip-hip music and culture, the N-word, and much, much more. Several tracks from the album are also aired together with great music from artists such as 9th Wonder, KRS-One, Celph Titled, Brother Ali and Organized Facts to name but a few.

RPL-Blacksheep

British publication Blacksheep Magazine has a long history of reporting on international hip hop & rap music news, events, releases & features.

Their regular contributor Andrew Kay took several listens through the new album by London’s Apex Zero. Out on 28th October, “Reality Provoking Liberation” is his debut solo album, although has released a previous mixtape in 2012 “The Pulse of the Awakening” and was previously known as part of the duo First and Last (still going strong) and the group The Pantheonz of Zenn-La.

Coming up through London events such as End of the Weak & Speaker’s Corner, and as part of these groups, he became known for his lyricism covering a wide range of political and social issues combined with a fiery delivery style. The review touches upon this in “The anger and the passion command every verse enabled by some wonderfully fluid production“, the production in the large part also courtesy of Apex Zero with further contributions from First and Last’s OMeziah

With comparisons of the “social commentary” made with artists such as Public Enemy, Immortal Technique and Brother Ali with a “rich London and UK centric vibe to it” the review then proceeds through a track by track breakdown, summarized as a whole with the description “an album of reportage, a war report from the tower blocks of a stark, cold Big Smoke, where social injustice and human enslavement are commented upon with the fist pumping ire of a frustrated humanist.
