Happy Born Day, Apollo Brown! (Playlist)

Happy Born Day to the Detroit homie and talented producer, Apollo Brown. His album discography stretches back to 2007 with his instrumental release of Skilled Trade, followed by Make Do and Mello Music Group's release of The Reset and The Left's Gas Mask. By then, the blog era was in full swing and a he was a favorite of niche bloggers like myself, Dart Adams and others. He's since released collaborative projects with Boog Brown, Hassaan Mackey, Guilty Simpson, Ghostface Killah, Red Pill & Verbal Kent as Ugly Heroes, Planet Asia, Ras Kass, Rappher Big Pooh, Skyzoo, Planet Asia, Locksmith, Joell Ortiz, Che Noir and more. One of the most prolific producers with a signature sound that continues to bring hard drums and soulful chops to the forefront. The playlist below shines some light on various tracks from his catalog that still stay in rotation for me, I hope that you enjoy it and give the man his flowers... I know he's cooking up more work as we speak! Oh, and do check out his new debut R&B album collaboration with Raheem DeVaughn... it's called "Lovesick".
