Audio: "The Times" by Apollo Brown ft. Oddisee

Listen to Apollo Brown and Oddisee collaborator on "The Times"

Apollo Brown's latest album Clouds is a 27-track instrumental LP full of hard beats and "top notch samples." When Oddisee heard "Tao Te Ching" for the first time, he too was impressed and inspired to come up with lyrics about his feelings on whats going on in North Africa, and especially his home country, Sudan. Their collaboration, retitled "The Times," is a perfect match. With powerfully succinct lyrcis, Oddisee lets his thoughts be known, and his support shown. Listen and download the track below.

Yanga Chief does exactly that by raising awareness on the good and bad of the village of South Africa—from partying to corruption. A trait that the greatest pop stars have been widely praised for.
