Following a string of single over the last few months, rap trailblazer Lord Apex unleashes one of the most complete rap albums of 2023.
Boasting a plethora of immaculately produced soundtracks, the album features a thrilling original production from one of America’s most coveted rap beatmakers, Madlib (MF DOOM, J Dilla) – as well as boasting heavyweight production from DJ Khalil (Dr Dre, Eminem), Angus Luke, Pops & Crooklin, Black Noi$e and Earbuds. With additional features from Freddie Gibbs, Greentea Peng and MAVI, the blend of top-tier US talent and rising UK stars point towards one of the most exciting full lengths to surface this year.
The album finds Apex in varying moods – righteous on “The Good Fight” rapping about the pure aims of simply “making art for the kids to vibe to”, to soul-searching and redemptive on “Phoenix”, to sensitively reflective on the Greentea Peng-assisted “In Your Heart”. The Good Fight emerges as a carefully curated, polished body of work that brings Apex to a new level of cohesion and substance.
For the release, AP has his international headline tour confirmed for March next year, kickstarting in Amsterdam and finishing in London (KOKO), typically, on 4/20
