Apollo Brown – “Streets Won’t Let Me Chill (feat. Diamond District)” mp3
From his time as a “bedroom producer” to being signed as a Mello Music Group producer, yacht rock aficionado Apollo Brown has a novel take on the sound of hip-hop. On the hard hitting street fable, “Streets Won’t Let Me Chill,” he is joined by Diamond District who drops some heavy turns of phrase about urban reality, race, and determination. From “The Reset” – one of four full lengths set for release in 2010 on MMG from this emerging artist and his crew – this single is a hard, luminous gem, forged in the streets of Detroit. If you like your hip-hop safe and fluffy, or full of tired gangsta clichés, skip this, cos it is intelligent, innovative, and completely real.
