Apollo Brown x OC – “People’s Champ” | New Music


If you don’t know about Apollo Brown, the heart-pounding hip-hop producer outta Detroit, and Diggin’ In The Crates emcee OC‘s collaborative album Trophies, shame on you. The record – which has just been released today on iTunes, a week ahead of schedule – has garnered praise from respected opinions the likes of Dame Dash and DJ Premier (“I just heard OC & Apollo Brown’s new LP and it’s dope original shit – that hip hop for the people!” Preem proclaimed).

To coincide with its early arrival today, the pair are giving away the “People’s Champ” cut for absolutely nothing. The track, what with Brown’s vibrant, pounding beat and OC’s no-nonsense verbals, should serve as an appetising advert for the rest of the record, which consists of 16 tracks, three verses per song with no choruses or hooks – just pure hip-hop.

Give it a listen below, cop Trophies on iTunes here and look for the album’s official wide release on May 1st.
