If you do anything today, make sure purchasing Apollo Brown and OC‘s new collaborative album Trophies is at the top of your to-do list. Making its digital release last week, the album is easily one of the best hip-hop projects in recent years. Given the duo’s past work — Detroit native Brown on the production standpoint with albums like The Reset and Clouds not to mention his other collaborative work, and revered Diggin’ In The Crates member OC’s Jewelz and other works — it’s only fitting that this would be a great album.
To celebrate the release of the album, the pair puts out their new track “Just Walk.” For the track, Brown flips a legendary Isaac Hayes sample into the perfect canvas for OC’s braggadocious verses, in which he compares his street respect to that of Nuyorican poet Miguel Piñero.
