There hasn’t been too many highly anticipated Hip Hop albums to come out in 2017 and quite honestly out of the very few that did, even fewer remained memorable. One LP though hitting the bins comes from two of the genres thoroughbreds to create one solid gem from beginning to end. After a short wait, Apathy & O.C. debut their Perestroika LP coming correct both lyrically and production wise with Apathy handling most of the beats with MoSS and Illinformed contributing heat to round things out. Both seasoned MC’s in the game, Perestroika sounds refreshing and young without suffering from the old man MC syndrome which seems to happen more and more these days. It’s a rare occasion that I’m looking forward to or even have hope for proper albums to drop but with this and the upcoming Wu-Tang Clan album, I think I’m locked in for the year.
