TopShelfMuzik and Apokalips the Archangel have become known for keeping Queens on the map when it comes to authentic NY Hip Hop, and 1137Q is no exception. Seasra23 delivers sheer ‘fix-your face’ head-nodding cadences while Apokalips administers top quality rhymes with knockout, lyrical jabs.
On Dangerous Minds Apokalips embodies a Queens-thoroughbred lifestyle while showing off his impeccable booth profession. He drills an image being hand in hand with forty’s and spray cans rocking Polo plaid, yet a leader who always shows face and is never undercover. There’s no escaping the “dangerous mind” of this lyrical militant or his bars that sink to the pit of our stomachs.
In Straight Out The Zoo Apokalips represents his Queen’s roots and exemplifies the similarities of street and wildlife survival as well as a strong-armed emcee preying on fallacious industry players. All the stress keep a ni**a depressed until I’m vexed then the whole world feeling possessed / Never rest Top Shelf Hip-Hop in effect / Apokalips stay humble no need to impress / I got next cancel the haters and the special effects / when I flex call me the finisher snatching your breathe to the death.”
Another lead off the album is Aggression. Set in a boxing ring going round for round, bar for bar, and verse for verse, “mumbling buffoons” are reminded that Hip Hop runs through Apokalips blood-line and will continue to keep it real until his last breath.
An unforgettable track and hair-raising one is Cycles of Life which depicts the gifts and curses of life. Surrounded by dead bodies, mothers crying, and mankind fighting to become survival of the fittest; it only makes sense to embrace what lies ahead. Apokalips vows his lyrics and spirit will live on through his family until his resurrection…
Each track is unique in flow and deliverance, yet consistent with a boom-bap vibe sure to please Hip Hop purists worldwide. Stream 1137Q and connect with Seasra23 of TopShelfMuzik and Apokalips the Archangel below.
