*Lord Apex Bio*
They often say that if you truly want to understand how your favourite artist is drawn to create the music that they make, you often have to discover the artists that have influenced them.
Lord Apex is a rare character, his musical knowledge a rabbithole and that’s evident in the producers, musicians, artists and DJs that he works with. He’s a student of the game, someone who has a rich opinion about anything he puts his ears to — it’s traits like these that will set him apart from his peers in the future. The influences bleed out from beyond the confines of the music itself, you hear tones of Madlib, J Dilla and MF DOOM - arguably the 2012 Miami Heat of rapper-producers. And that’s a pretty solid benchmark to look toward.
Long before headlining his debut UK tour in 2020 and selling out Scala, AP’s show at the famed 100 Club in London’s West End cast him in an elite category of iconic artists that have passed through their doors, including The Clash, Sex Pistols, Oasis, After selling out his first UK tour in October 2020, Apex showed the world that he’s only just getting started.
The energy the rapper exudes is pure and genuine; during the Leeds leg of His last solo tour, AP took time out to FaceTime his mother during the show to wish her a happy birthday, to which everyone in the room joined in. He cares about the people in his life and wants to see them win big. 2021 promises to be a fruitful and life changing year for the young rapper as he embarks on a tour with Indiana-born, LA-based rapper Freddie Gibbs, who has solidified himself as one of the best rappers in the game right now. Already, this puts him in conversations with those leading what feels like a return to the soulful rap of the early to mid-00’s, the rappers and producers who have picked up the mantle that Dilla and DOOM left in their wake. In ten years’ time, maybe less, many more will see what some of us already know— Lord Apex belongs in the conversation with the likes of Freddie Gibbs, Griselda, Quasimoto, Slum Village and many more. AP marked the start of 2022 with the release of ‘The Bullshit’ produced by Cookin’ Soul, an infectious, pulsating record that departs from the hazy, nonchalant demeanour fans may have been used to on records such as Smoke Sessions Vol. 2, Supply & Demand and the more recent SSV3. The release of the collaborative album with Cookin’ Soul, Off The Strength, was another masterstroke and an example of one his strongest attributes being his ability to create cinematic projects with sole producers. And with that, it’s no surprise that AP’s has found a deep and strong connection with unlikely music scenes in countries such as Brazil. Lord Apex star continues to rise and then, rise some more.
