RPL-UKHHreview

Having already performed an exclusive freestyle video for leading British online hip hop site UKHH.COM some weeks ago, their contributor Ethan Everton has also now reviewed the album Reality Provoking Liberation which released on 28th October.

The article is yet another endorsement among many publications who have covered the release in the past couple of months, opening “Potentially the rawest truths that you’ll hear on record for the remainder of the year, the philosophies behind the wordplay in Apex Zero’s almost entirely self-produced début album Reality Provoking Liberation is if anything a reflective experience for any listener.

It is in fact a very in depth appraisal of the album, delving into the finer points of the tracks and is summarized “As stated at the beginning, this is more than an just album to muse too. It’s intention is to bring about a new mentally aware consciousness that’s being prohibited in ways unimaginable.

RPL-HipHopinEnglish

West London emcee & producer Apex Zero released his debut solo album “Reality Provoking Liberation” on 28th October to critical acclaim.

Drawing from the sensibilities of hip hop from the Golden Era, he has received plaudits for addressing a wide range of political and social issues in his rhymes & lyricism, delivered with his trademark firebrand flow. The latest online publication to endorse the release is the UK’s Hip Hop In English

In opening, they introduce the album as “a verbal lambasting directed straight at the head honchos holding office all over the world. Delicate it is not.” before dissecting the lyrics, beats, tracks and summarizing “Heavy, yes. Hard hitting, yes. Informed, skilful and dynamic, yes. It’s a philosophy self described as Neo-Hardcore. Not for the casual listener, but definitely one for those willing to open their mind and question their surroundings.

For anyone wanting a real grasp about what the album represents, read the review HERE

Meanwhile, Apex has been busy putting the finishing touches to his live set for the album launch party taking party on Saturday 7th December, upstairs at The Vibe Bar, 91 Brick Lane, London E1 6QL.

RPL-Musiceyz

RPL-AH25

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:

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.
