“One of our favorite East Coast emcees Has-Lo, has a new video remix utilizing new footage, new filters, and new angles for the Apollo Brown remixed version of the song Limit, now titled Hindsight. The new version from Apollo is a striped down and haunting affair that puts Has’ man on the edge lyrical display in focus.
The occassion? MMG is getting ready for an early fall release of Has-Lo’s critically acclaimed debut mmg album “In Case I Don’t Make It” on limited edition 180 gram vinyl. Has-Lo is also busy preparing a new project with North Carolina emcee Castle for release on Mello Music Group later this year.” -Mello Music Group
The origins of Ugly Heores stems from Apollo Brown wanting to do a heavy blue collar album that paints a real picture of life out there. Not a gangsta record. Not a hipster record. A record that paints life as it is today for a lot of the working poor. And as much as we all want to act like we aren’t the working poor – truth is, most of us are living check to check with moments of glory intersparsed with notices from electric companies that the disconnect is pending. Emcees Red Pill (Detroit) and Verbal Kent (Chicago) lay some of the rawest slice of life narratives in the game today over 15 tracks produced by Apollo Brown. Think soul drenched beats with moody horns and heavy drums. We all listen to these rags to riches stories most people sell us, but this is that rags and still hoping story. The album is Ugly Heroes.
