Highly respected, mega-producer LEVEL 13 links with DJ TMB along with some of Hip-Hop’s elite heavyweights, Coast Lo Castro, Eff Yoo, and NEMS for “Island of the Apes.” The single/video is the first release of the ‘$2£’ EP.
“Island of the Apes” is a lyrical tale brimming with aggressive, cutthroat bars calling out cock riders and clout chasers. The triple threat of emcees is the epitome of a jungle filled with predatory wild animals who can smell the fear of weakness.
The video, shot in black and white, lures viewers in with cornerstone images of Coney Island, that ingeniously pop up throughout the video in sync with classic cuts and scratches. The video allows for no distractions other to be shaken by these lyrical ‘cold-blooded killers’.
LEVEL 13 provides intensified, soul awakening bass and striking drums to heighten the animalistic message, along with boom-bap cadences that are sure to have Hip-Hop purists injecting this dose of ear-milk on repeat.
