Yup, it's true!

I dislike most shit without drums, but Apollo Brown has done it right and created one of the best albums of 2017 with Planet Asia...

Litney, When he raps 'Shalamar blasting out the Chevy' in 'Dalai Llama Slang' I instantly thought of Roc Marci.

^seems to be biting Roc's style of beats too.

and this album is pretty dope but not great. apollo uses way too many known, already used samples(like 5 or 6) and he dosnt even flip them differently which drags the album down imo. some of asias topics are cheesy and some of the hooks are weak. also that fake static on every track is wack sauce.

4/5 max.

and not just because wicked gives no reasons at all about why he has this opinion. i don't expect him to give any reasons; he never does. he can't. it's either "dope" or "nope", and that's about as deep as he'll ever get.

i also know that wicked's taste has been evolving a lot lately. he's started to listen to instrumental hip hop, going so far as to include some instro albums on his year end list. wicked isn't the man he used to be - he's more open minded now - and anchovies is (i'm guessing, based on the timeline here) the first no-drum album wicked has listened to since his tastes have changed. if reloaded came out now, maybe wicked would love it. there's no way of knowing. he might argue groundlessly claim that anchovies is "no drums done right", but his enjoyment of this album compared to other no drum albums might not be about how much better this album allegedly embraces the style. it might just be that it's the first time wicked's listened to a no drums album with a more open minded attitude. i could be wrong, but, again, the OP gives no hints of reason.

So basically the Apollo formula is have some loud ass vinyl crackle thru the whole song and turn all the lows down so there is no bass? Thats supposed to sound vintage? Lol
Vintage records still have bass and mids and hi's and low' this shit sounds like your listening to it on your phone but your actually not listening to it on your phone lol

^For the record, it's been about 2 years since I started to really get into Instrumental HipHop. Also, I've listened to plenty of albums that have songs with no drums. I bought Reloaded on both CD and Vinyl when it dropped. I'll listen to Reloaded again soon and see if I feel any different.

As for this Anchovies album, I don't know what to say. *shrugs*

Wait wait, last time i conferred with the ughh gatekeepers, they assured me that this album is NOT hip hop by definition

It's FOLK RAP

Is wicked a FOLK RAP dj/compilation maker now?

Ka's drumless rap>>>>>

^His drumless "beats" are too simple and overall pretty wack not to mention Ka is a whisper-rapping CLOWN!! Can't stand his whisper bullshit.

And Gino, I do like Apollo Brown overall, but don't get it twisted because I've complained about him a lot over the years. Just sayin...

i feel the opposite bout apollo brown. his beats with drums are really hard hitting even tho he sticks to a formula. he shouldnt have messed with drumless. i only want this cuz i collect all the apollo brown and one rapper projects but this isnt even top 25 for me really.
