Apathy Gets Personal On Seventh Album, ‘Where the River Meets the Sea’

blame it on Shake June 1, 2021

With just under 20 years under his belt, Apathy has carved out quite the lane for himself in the hip hop world with six studio albums and over a dozen mixtapes, EPs and compilations (It’s the Bootleg, Muthafuckas! Vol. 1 is still one of my favorites to this day). And now, as he extends his reach into other realms (fatherhood, real estate, etc), the Demigod emcee is back with his seventh full-length album, Where the River Meets the Sea.

“This album i just dropped… is the deepest music I’ve ever made – ever,” Ap says. “The most pain I’ve ever felt in my life, went in to creating this. The most joy I’ve ever felt, went in to creating this. I cried a lot when I wrote these songs. I’m cool with saying that… cuz this is life. My father passing… and then me, becoming a father. Trying to become a better person, to raise two little beautiful humans. It made me wonder what my father was thinking and feeling when he raised me. So I wrote a lot of this, so one day my kids can listen back and have a little more insight in to what I was going through.”

Arriving at 14 tracks, Where the River Meets the Sea comes equipped with features from Styles P, Lil Fame, ANoyd, Bennett (who I need to hear more from, asap), Pep Love and Tajai of the Hieroglyphics, Chris Webby, Brevi, Snak the Ripper, and Hayze.
