Apollo Brown andÂ Skyzoo are back with the “A Couple Dollars” video featuringÂ Joell Ortiz.
The day before their collaborative album, The Easy Truth, is available; Apollo Brown andÂ Skyzoo liberate the first visual, â€œA Couple Dollars,â€ featuring Joell Ortiz from the project and sit-down with Ambrosiaforheads.com for a Q&A session.Â After years of mutual respect, circling each other in collaborations, tours, style and respect, two titans of their craft have finally collided in Apollo Brown & Skyzooâ€™s The Easy Truth. The album is everything youâ€™ve dreamt it would be: breakneck instrumentals and syllables crafted to make your head spin. The marriage between Detroit instrumentals and NYC wordplay has never been more cohesive. Themes range from police brutality to NY ambitions; Skyzoo shows you the world the way he sees it.
Recorded and produced in Detroit, The Easy Truth, is the perfect distillation of hip-hop influences. Every moment on the album is a loaded question, a perspective positing a notion of truth, the convergence of grit and symphony.Â Joining the artists on the record are Joell Ortiz, Westside Gunn, Stalley, Conway and Patty Crash (who guested on The Roots single â€œNeverâ€), a reciprocal band of guests that only add depth and richness to the duoâ€™s chemistry. The Easy Truth, is true to its titular description: honest, fluid and organic.
