Apathy Eastern Philosophy
- Words: Max Herman
- Label: Babygrande
With his eloquence alone, Apathy should have little trouble collecting new listeners when his major label debut drops on Atlantic. But for now, he‘s still rocking on an independent and he‘s doing it well. On Eastern Philosophy, he dubs himself the "King of Connecticut," making it clear that his cockiness hasn‘t faded a bit since his days as a shit-talking MC. But at least Ap has expanded his subject matter-he now rocks over quintessential East Coast productions about how he‘s done with being broke ("9 To 5") and how his CT stomping grounds aren‘t as pristine as many would like to believe ("I Remember"). Not too complex, but far from run-of-the-mill, Apathy looks likely to help bridge the gap between the underground and mainstream.
