Apollo Brown – “Real Detroit (feat. The Left)” (play)
In the former site of one of the world’s greatest ever industrial booms – The American auto industry – You will currently find one of the most desolate urban landscapes in the western hemisphere. As it happens, Detroit has also long been a MAJOR music hotbed, giving us gr8s from blues giant John Lee Hooker, to Motown Records, to the car factory noise inspired Stooges, all of whom left immeasurable marks on popular music worldwide. It is therefor NO surprise that some of the hip-hop coming from the motor city today would also be significant. Taking us around the streets he knows, here is Apollo Brown assisted by The Left, representing the NEW sound of Detroit.
