Detroit hip-hop producer Apollo Brown and Brooklyn rapper Skyzoo have teamed up for an album, ‘The Easy Truth,’ which is set to drop September 30. The record is going to feature Westside Gunn, Stalley, Conway and Patty Crash, and their latest single, ‘A Couple Dollars,’ features Slaughterhouse’s Joell Ortiz. Not only will this album be undoubtedly fantastic, but ‘A Couple Dollars’ is a perfect representation of what to expect.
“For me, this record is a personal favorite of mine because of what it represents as far as my perspective. Coming up, I saw certain things in my neighborhood, which led to certain aspirations, which led to motivation of all sorts. This record is about how those things come about, and how they started in the first place, dating back 400+ years ago, as pointed out in the second verse. This song stands as another testament to who, what, when, where and why as far as how it is in my neighborhood”. – Skyzoo
“Always feels good to tell the story of my past and how it was growing up in my projects in Brooklyn. Reminds me where I came from. You need that reminder every now and then to keep you focused and sharp.” – Joell Ortiz
