Apollo Brown - Deception & Woes (feat. Clear Soul Forces) | Official Video
There are cities that get by on their good looks, offer climate and scenery, views of mountains or oceans, rockbound, or with palm trees. And then there are blue collar cities like Detroit, that have to work for a living. Cities that rely on the toughness and resiliency of their people. Cities that will not quit. Detroit has an unmistakable soul; nobody can duplicate what we give to the world. - Sincerely, Detroit

Hailing from the West Michigan town of Grand Rapids, Apollo Brown is a hip-hop producer working out of Detroit. In the tradition of left-field beatmakers like the great J Dilla and Madlib, Brown is a man of many influences, with a sound that owes as much to the yacht rock of Seals & Crofts as it does to classic R&B, pulling from all corners of the music world to craft beats that are as interesting musically as they are rhythmically. His vast discography includes the guest-filled The Reset (2010), instrumental works like Clouds (2011), and full-length collaborations with MCs such as Ras Kass (Blasphemy, 2014), Skyzoo (The Easy Truth, 2016), and Joell Ortiz (Mona Lisa, 2018). Brown has also participated in hip-hop groups the Left and Ugly Heroes.
