“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‘
Detroit has an indelible legacy in hip-hop. From artists like J Dilla to Black Milk, from Denaun Porter to Apollo Brown, Detroit’s music has a sound unlike any other. When Apollo Brown set out to create the tribute to his home, he knew he needed to do the city justice.
Featuring over fifty Detroit artists, Apollo Brown’s new double album, ‘Sincerely, Detroit‘, is a love letter to the culture. From different eras and different walks of life, veterans and newcomers alike lend their styles and deliveries to the twenty-one track album. Featuring artists like Royce Da 5’9”, Crown Nation, Black Milk, Trick Trick, Elzhi, Slum Village, and many, many more, ‘Sincerely, Detroit‘ is a nearly comprehensive look at the styles and flavors of Detroit.
While the world watches Detroit for influence, Apollo is back to remind people that Detroit sets a standard for others to follow and is a creative haven for Hip-hop. Today, we’re extremely excited to share the first cut off of the new album, “God Help Me” (featuring Black Milk, Ketchphraze, & DJ Los).
“Nobody can duplicate what we give to the world.” –Apollo Brown
