Ugly Heroes - "Ugly" (Ft. DJ Eclipse) - Audio Download


Ugly Heroes releases bonus track to announce release of their self-titled album on VINYL!!!
 
Detroit's most consistent producer, Apollo Brown, comes through with his trademark sound - brassy horn chops, vinyl crackle, and layered drums that knock just right.  Definitely turn this one up and let Apollo's production  bump at it's head-nodding, face scrunching best. 
 
Red Pill jumps out first with a quick shout to Mello for making the deal on this record: "It ain't a major deal yet, but it ain't minor shit / got the industry by the throat with an iron grip."  By :53 seconds in Pill puts a sock in all those armchair comment box reviewers mouths with a display of lyrical wordplay that I'll leave you to unravel on the repeated rewind.  After the verse, DJ Eclipse lays a gorgeous scratch hook, reminding people Ugly Heroes is Ugly as ever.
 
The second verse finds Chicago veteran Verbal Kentchoking listeners out with their livestrong bracelets.  Verbal proves he's a bad dude like Erykah... knocking your wheaties bowl offa the table, liftin you up and literally throwin' you offa the label.  Then at 2:16 Mr. Kent decides to jump it up a notch and match Pills tongue twisting throw down with another display that leaves your pause button worn.
 
Before it's over Apollo masterfully brings it back to a sit down soul stirring conversational tone.
