RPL-SubbaCultcha

West London rapper and producer Apex Zero sat down with journalist Ben Bradford recently for British online magazine Subba Cultcha.

They discussed the making of his debut solo album Reality Provoking Liberation and the underlying theme and concept of the subject matter, as well as working with his fellow partner in “First and Last” rhyme OMeza Omnsicient, Hasan Salaaam, Iron Braydz, Amy True and Invincible Armour. He explains why this has been the culmination of years of work beginning in 2010 and his writing techniques, whether as a lyricist or a producer, and his plans for the future.

It has been a highly impressive debut release, and the journalist opens the article with his own thoughts on the album, and these excerpts provide the flavour:

listening to Apex Zero’s fierce and powerful lyrics on ‘Reality Provoking Liberation’ its clear he’s trying to unite people and to fight against the common enemy, the state, the Government , instead of against each other

As Apex spits on the rough as a sawn of shotgun to the face of an opening track ‘Shackled By The Pound’…he attempts to rally the unfortunate and the oppressed throughout the album, giving messages of support and encouragement, and he’s asking for a revolution throughout the album

‘Reality Provoking Liberation’ is a really melodic album, underneath the fury and anger, and with Apex spitting lyrics the size of nuclear bombs, the melody and classical edge really takes you into his lyrics and messages. it’s a full on surround sound album. Its an epic, intense, emotional, and informative album.
