Baltimore rapper M.I. and New Jersey producer DJ Cutt, aka Constant Deviants, released their fifth studio album “Omerta” digitally on June 28th through Six2Six Records.

It is being distributed worldwide on CD and vinyl formats by Fatbeats, and is due in stores from next week.

They have just released their third single from the album. “Reign Storms” was written in the aftermath of the death of Freddie Gray at the hands of Baltimore Police officers, all the more poignant now due to the well documented tragic events of recent weeks.

Quite clearly, black lives matter, as indeed do all lives.

Two more British online magazines are the latest to run the rule over the new album by West London rapper & producer Apex Zero’s debut solo album “Reality Provoking Liberation” which released on 28th October

Multi genre Musiceyz and urban music specialist AH 25 Eight Entertainment like many before them have endorsed the young emcee’s rhymes, powerful delivery and conscientious approach which addresses many of the political and social issues affecting large sections of society today

The influences of artists such as Wu Tang, Immortal Technique, Nas, dead prez, Public Enemy, Klashnekoff, Phi Life Cypher and Skinnyman are evident in terms of the traditional values of hip hop lyricism, but also has a unique production style drawn from a wide spectrum of musical genres which lends itself to an edgy and at times aggressive full on attack to the senses.

Direct and to the point, he’s drawn an appreciation from an impressive range of media titles, and the latest reviews can be read at:

The debut solo album by London rapper and producer Apex Zero dropped on 28th October and has proven to be one of UK Hip Hop’s biggest releases of 2013

British online magazine Data Transmission are the latest to give “Reality Provoking Liberation” their seal of approval via their review written by Jazz Gill. The publication have developed an international profile for their coverage of dance music, but have always had an appreciation for high caliber rap & hip hop artists as the opening lines of the review testify:

Apex Zero’s Reality Provoking Liberation is perhaps the most passionate version of this style released in a long time.” as the article deciphers the political and social issues addressed, delivered with a passionate and energetic flow style and conscientious lyricism. It’s been a common theme in much of the media coverage which has been widespread for this album, not so much a throwback to an early sound, but a throwback to a time when the genre was used in a more thought provoking way

Summarizing “this is an album full of anthems for the street soldiers in the UK.” read the whole review HERE

RPL-BeardedMag

British online publication Bearded Magazine sets out “to generate coverage for independent labels & artists regardless of genre, background or how fashionable they are

They do just that via features, interviews, reviews, news, videos and their editorial policy isn’t driven by any other factor other than if they feel the artist merits the support. They are the latest, via guest contributor Leland Gill, to take a listen through the new album by London’s rapper and producer Apex Zero.

“Reality Provoking Liberation” is his debut solo album, out on 28th October, having previously released and performed live as part of the duo First and Last, who are still very much in force, and the group The Pantheonz on Zenn-La. Apex Zero’s reputation for conscientious lyricism delivered with a fierce flow developed in these early days and is still very much evident in the new album

The article opens “While other artists brag about changing the game, Apex Zero aims higher in his mission to wake up the world and educate them on the many corrupt systems in place today. In Reality Provoking Liberation, he pulls no punches in his lyrics as he spits about current inequality and organising to forge a better world” which in itself is as good a summary of the overall vibe to this album as any yet made. It’s a mix of this and other key factors which has made this such an impressive debut solo release, one picked up by a wide cross section of the media, and you can read more about the magazine’s thoughts on it HERE

The album launch event will take place upstairs at The Vibe Bar, 91 Brick Lane, London E1 6QL on Saturday 7th December from 8pm – 1am. Also appearing will be Caxton Press, Iron Braydz, DJ A.Gee (Itch FM) and host Peaches. Price is £5.00 on the door and the nearest tube is Aldgate East. More about the venue can be found at www.vibe-bar.co.uk

RPL-TheSkinny

Edinburgh based physical & online publication The Skinny Magazine covers a broad spectrum of entertainment including theatre, comedy, art, literature, going out / events, travel and music.

Their contributor, Bram Gieben, likes his hip hop and is the latest to review the new debut solo album by London’s Apex Zero – “Reality Provoking Liberation” – which releases on 28th October. The rapper & producer would have been best known previously as part of the duo First and Last (still very much alive & kicking) and also as part of the group The Pantheonz of Zenn-La, renowned for their frenetic live shows.

Opening with “Apex Zero’s raw, manifesto-driven raps have a lot in common with the edgy, paranoid psy-ops chat of Triple Darkness and M9. Chaotic Revolt in particular captures the anger and violence inherent in the legacy of the 2011 London riots, and throughout, the beats draw on the rich tradition of string-led, cinematic sample-craft of RZA” it is another review picking up on the range of political & social issues covered in his rhymes and delivered in such a way that “Throughout, Apex Zero’s lyrical content is angry, literate and intelligent
