Apathy is back on his bad-guy shit with his latest single, “The Order,” which is a feast of battle raps and wild wordplay produced by living Hip-Hop legend DJ Premier.
“The Order” is another banger off Apathy’s forthcoming sixth studio LP, The Widow’s Son, which also includes the Pharoahe Monch-featuring, Pete Rock-produced “I Keep On” and the Nottz-produced “Alien Weaponry.” And while those tracks featured plenty of unhinged bars from the Demigodz emcee, he’s especially on one over the neck-snapping drums and piano-laced production, courtesy of Preem.
This joint features quotable after quotable from Apathy, whose writing somehow gets even sharper with each subsequent release. We’re talking lines like, “Won’t go on Flex, he can’t handle me flowin’/ F*ck a bomb, get the sound of a planet explodin’,” and “I move like a ninja do, especially in Pumas/ Sittin’ next to Jesus, starin’ skeptically at Judas.” And of course, it’s all delivered with his trademark, unmistakable flow.
“The Order” is the 3rd instant grat track available for download off the iTunes’ pre-order for, The Widow’s Son. In addition to Premo, Pete Rock, Nottz and Pharoahe Monch, the 14 track LP also includes features and production from the likes of M.O.P., Celph Titled, Diabolic, Buckwild, and Stu Bangas, as well as Ap himself who handles a chunk of the album’s production. The Widow’s Son becomes available for stream and download, as well as all physical formats (CD, vinyl and cassette) on March 2nd, via Dirty Version. Head over to the Demigodz online store for various pre-order options, and bundle packages.
