New fresh music dropped by Mello Music Group, the act is called Ugly Heroes, as well as the album, and it’s a raw poetic delivery from a blue collar perspective, instead of the usual rags to riches story, here we have a rags and still hoping story.
The origins of Ugly Heores stems from Apollo Brown wanting to do a heavy blue collar album that paints a real picture of life out there. Not a gangsta record. Not a hipster record. A record that paints life as it is today for a lot of the working poor. And as much as we all want to act like we aren’t the working poor – truth is, most of us are living check to check with moments of glory intersparsed with notices from electric companies that the disconnect is pending. Emcees Red Pill (Detroit) and Verbal Kent (Chicago) lay some of the rawest slice of life narratives in the game today over 15 tracks produced by Apollo Brown. Think soul drenched beats with moody horns and heavy drums.
Out like searching for a nine to five.
