Apathy’s New Album ‘The Widow’s Son’ Is on the Way
Veteran Connecticut rapper Apathy has something new on the way, and dropped a song to celebrate the occasion. His new album, The Widow's Son, will be available on March 2, and will feature his latest track, "I Keep On," featuring two verses from Pharoahe Monch and production from Pete Rock, plus the DJ Premier-produced "The Order."
Apathy sounds crisp on "I Keep On," doling out his slick lyrics easily. "Nobody iller or greater of the vanilla flavor/Resurrection of rap, the rehabilitator," he spits. He then breaks down just how far his lines will go: "I'll spit a verse that'll hit the Earth and drill a crater/Miles deep, styles seep into the core."
Pharoahe Monch doesn't waste any time, cutting right to the point early on. "Let me be totally honest/You wanna know what made me demonic?" he asks, rhetorically. "I made it through Reaganomics for delf... glistenin'/With a pistol to my head listenin' to the Delfonics." He also kills the end of his first verse, spitting, "Fuck it, I'm stuck inside the ’90s, still got Pirelli's/Rocked with 2Pac in the bay, not a lot you can tell me/Cock the snub nose put it in your mouth like Akinyele."
On "The Order," boasting a classic head-nodding boom-bap beat replete with Premier's scratches, Apathy delivers his hard-hitting rhymes with lines like, "Won’t go on Flex, he can’t handle me flowin’/Fuck a bomb, get the sound of a planet explodin’,” and “I move like a ninja do, especially in Pumas/Sittin’ next to Jesus, starin’ skeptically at Judas.”
Apathy's The Widow's Son, available for preorder now, is 14 tracks in length, and will feature appearances from M.O.P, Buckwild and more. Apathy also produced four songs on the album himself, and secured production from DJ Premier. Primo has been making his rounds recently, working with A$AP Ferg and revealing his connection to Travis Scott.
