Audio: Apollo Brown X O.C. "The Biggest Loser"

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.Trophies

"No frills hip-hop" is what we classified Apollo Brown and O.C.'s Trophies album as in our recent review. The bonus track "The Biggest Loser" is right in that same vein, showing us that the formula for making a dope rap tune is really just as simple as [dope rap] + [dope beat]. Apollo Brown throws a moody piano loop onto an interpolation of "Love Is a Battlefield" in the chorus, and hits heavy on the 2 and 4, while O.C. kicks his signature "slick talk mixed with intelligent thoughts." This ain't about no Weight Watcher-sh*t neither. Grab the free download via Bandcamp and cop that Trophies LP right now or you'll regret it.
