Apollo Brown, Verbal Kent, and Red Pill recently sat down with UHF Cable Access Channel 43 for an interview about their new self-titled group album “UGLY HEROES” that drops 5/28/13. Hear what the record is about and check the album previews!
An Ugly Hero is considered a myth. Growing up, the heroes we saw in cartoons and movies were perfectly chiseled, intelligent, and had senses none of us possess. An UGLY HERO is the everyday blue collar individual that makes the world go ’round. These are the heroes that work hard all day, everyday to help ensure that the lives around them are taken care of, and do it all without recognition. They wear themselves into the ground and sacrifice vanity for family.
Put together by Quelle Chris with Cavalier and Fresh Daily; produced by Quelle Chris, Messiah Musik, and Sifu; featuring Tanya Morgan, Denmark Vessey, DJ GroWeyez, Chay, and Bwameeks; “Niggas Is Men” is a dusty, sharp cornered 13 track affair. A prelude to Quelle Chris’s upcoming Mello Music Group debut proper, NIM is a head-nodding, intoxicating journey through reincarnation, long tokes, the poisoned food supply, addiction cycles, and even hot & crusty hoes.
Quelle Chris and Mello Music Group have decided to give away the entire album just until the weekend to jump-start people as to what the new project is all about. Still, for those who sleep till after 11:59 Friday night, “NIM” will be available everywhere digitally. Get on board …
Quelle Chris drops the first music video to his upcoming “Niggas Is Men” project dropping on March 19th via Mello Music Group, which is Episode 2 of his 2Dirt4TV series. The album primarily features Cavalier but also features additional guest spots from Fresh Daily, Tanya Morgan, Denmark, DJ GroWeyez and others.
Today, enjoy the video for the song “We Eat It” featuring Cavalier, as Quelle Chris and Cavalier go back and forth discussing the ills of GMOs, Hydrogenated Oils and the struggles of working class life that leads to quick, but unhealthy food, and the overall lack of concern for one’s physical well being.
