1. NEW MUSIC: Apathy – “Check to Check.”

    One guaranteed way to get your music posted here: name your album Honkey Kong! (having album cover art featuring an agitated primate like that pictured above doesn’t hurt either). Actually, the latest from Apathy (Ape-athy?) merits mentioned sans monkey business. Rappers rappin’ ’bout rap can get tiresome but “Check to Check” should relate to anyone working in an industry that’s gone down the toilet. Producer Evidence does a good job with a somber guitar lick track (and even better job with choice of “Elevators” hook). Despite shallow pockets Ap proves still witty with the punchlines: “Like projects in Prague I’m livin’ Czech to Czech.”
