RPL-Guestlist

Apex Zero took some time out recently to speak with Andrew Kay for British magazine Guestlist recently to speak on his new album “Reality Provoking Liberation” which released on Monday 28th October.

It’s the debut solo album from the London rapper and producer, a brief departure from his work as part of the hip hop duo First and Last. It’s had an impressive media response in the past couple of months, with an appreciation not only for the conscientious lyricism addressing a range of political and social issues, but the ferocity of the delivery and quality in production.

In the interview, he also speaks on his background in starting out in hip hop, and how artists such as Immortal Technique, dead prez, Wu Tang, Nas, Chinese philosophy, historic figures Malcolm X, Marcus Garvey, Huey P Newton and writers Michel Foucault & Molefi Kete Asante have all influenced and contributed to his way of thinking. He also goes into detail about the extent of his musical influences, which are wide ranging,and his thoughts on the UK hip hop scene, past and present

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

Long running online platform supporting British hip hop & rap artists, UKHH.Com, got together with London’s Apex Zero recently to film a new interview where he speaks on his new album Reality Provoking Liberation (out 28th October) and he also spits some exclusive bars for them.

One half of the city’s First and Last duo, this is his debut solo album and has made a strong impression with the UK’s media recognizing the passion with which he addresses a range of political and social issues in his lyricism, the energetic delivery style and tight production, much of which is supplied by the man himself.
