APE SHIT: SWIPE DA FUNK FEAT MR. LIF AND NABO RAWK

APE the GRiM is what you would call a supreme product of the 1990s and golden age era of Rap music. Blessed with eclectic ability to perform all aspects of Hip Hop culture, A-P-E (All Pure Elements) might be True School Hip Hop’s last hope to show the world that the other side of the culture is still strong and well preserved. A child of music since the age of 4, Ape was always the kid with all the new rap tapes. APE got his start DJing in 1997 with a 5-man DJ band called The Break Invaders which included DJ Illogix(Deck Demons), StatikSelektah(Showoff, Shade 45), DJ G.I. Joe(DJ for Immortal Technigue) and DJ Def Rock(Monstamind). It wouldn’t take long for Ape to realize he had more to offer lyrically and he gradually swayed away for the turntables and focused hard on rhyming. He made his first studio recording in 1999 and since then he has spent much time and money making quality rap songs. He and DJ Illogix linked up with Portsmouth beat maestro DC the MIDI Alien in 2001 and formed the trio Monkey Biz. In 2006 these 3 NH All-Stars released their first full-length album entitled “Animal Odyssey” containing 19 incredible cuts. You’ll find whatever you need on this album: comedy and satire; history and philosophy; battle talk and competition; love and consciousness; and cutting-edge flows and tricky wordplay. Not to mention Ape’s FIREPOWER series banging systems all through New England keeping a steady underground buzz with 4 installments circulating in every weed cypher since 2006, with volume 4 making huge waves along the seacoast. Teaming up with Bronx native UNDU-KATI, APE released the full length album JAW & ORDER in late 2009 and the his fans only got more consumed in his madnesss. Despite his fierce battle reputation Ape finds time to enlighten those older and younger on the evolution of Hip Hop and what it really is as opposed to rap music. He might be a guest speaker in your class to recite his accalimed WWII rap synopsis or spit the Declaration of Independence, and on the same day he’ll spill his opponents blood all over the stage with off-the-brain combat. Any given stage performance from Ape might include break dancing or hat tricks, or both. Destined to bring justice and glory to every hardcore disciple of the culture, Ape plans to defy all stereotypes and gimmicks and make real Hip Hop important again; a true leader.

More specifically…I rep Dorchester.

I rep The Mikst Nutz Fam. Big Oh!, Johnny Hatch (He’s still in here!), Kon, and Budaroc/Grandscale. And I rep with Reel Drama as well.

5.) WHATS YOUR FIRST MEMORIES OF MUSIC?

My first memories of music is my pops playing Parliament and Bootsy stuff like that in the crib.

6.) WHEN DID YOU FIRST HEAR HIP-HOP MUSIC?

I first heard rap music played in Derby Park across from the projects where I lived at the time. Back in like 81 or 82 hearing cats rhyme from my window.

7.) WHERE YOU AT RIGHT NOW? WHAT CURRENT AND RELEASED PROJECTS COULD YOU SHARE WITH US?

Me and Drama got “The Authenticity”, which we released in 2010 on Itunes, we still got “Pioneer” which we put out last year, for free download. And right now we’re working on “Regime Change”.

8.) ANY SHOWS OR EVENTS YOU’LD LIKE TO SHOUT OUT?

I should have a show coming early next month…but i had dumb shows this summer…we’ll see.

9.) RAMEN OR MAC AND CHEESE?

Mac and Cheese of course!!

10.) ANY BOOKS YOU READING RIGHT NOW?

Right now I’m reading “Mind Control and World Control” by Jim Keith, ill book. I’m looking for “The Tavistock Institute of Human Relations”. I need that book.

11.) IF YOU COULD GO ANYWHERE RIGHT NOW WITH 5000$ where would it be and what would you be doing?

If I had 5G’s I’d invest that in me and Dramas music, I wouldnt go anywhere. That would go back into the music.

12.) WHAT IS YOUR TOP 5 FAVORITE CHARITABLE CAUSES?

I honestly don’t have a favorite charity, cause they all bullshit.

13.) WHAT’S IMPORTANT TO YOU RIGHT NOW? ANYTHING GOES..

What’s important to me is that Humanity wakes up before it’s too late.

14.) ANYONE LOCKED DOWN YOU WANT TO SHOUT OUT IN THE BING?

Big up my family A….My family Eugene….hold your heads.

15.) DO YOU HAVE A SOUNDCLOUD FACEBOOK WEBSITE MIXCLOUD TWITTER YOUTUBE OR OTHER PROFILES ONLINE YOU’LD LIKE TO SHARE?

https://www.soundcloud.com/ripshop-sutton, I’m on facebook, ripshop4real on twitter.

FREE DOWNLOAD HERE FROM REEL DRAMA AZTECH ALIAS AND RIPSHOP PLUS OTHER GOODIES…

16.) WHO’S IN YOUR TOP TEN RIGHT NOW?

My top ten would be Dilla (r.i.p.), Pharoah Monch, Black Thought, Common, Redman, Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, Nas, Jay Electronica, and Slum Village.

17.) WHAT KIND OF PREFORMER ARE YOU?

I wouldn’t be able to say what kind of performer I am but, I like to get the crowd into it. I need the crowds energy…I have to know they’re into it or I’ll stop the music and let ’em know what it is. The crowd has to be a part of it.

18.) DO YOU LIKE ART?

I love art. I draw all the time. But I’m not into it like I’m going to art galleries, but my dude Percy is gross with it though. Shout out to Percy.

19.) IF SO ANY VISUAL ARTISTS OR PAINTERS OR GRAFFITI ARTISTS OR GRAPHIC DESIGNERS ETC ETC YOUR INTO RIGHT NOW?

Damn I shouted Percy out too early haha. My dude Brian Life is nasty with it. He did early Akrobatik and Mr Lif’s lp’s. Kool Keith’s joint.

I like Theindustryexposed.com, okayplayer.com…

21.) WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE PLACES TO GET DAILY NEWS FROM ABOUT CURRENT EVENTS IN OUR COUNTRY AND ABROAD?

I get my news from alternative sources, no mainstream shit. I might go to Alex Jones Infowars, but I’m real iffy about that, cause I don’t know if Alex is to be trusted who knows though?

22.) where do you see the future of (genre) heading?

I see Hip Hop Culture destroyed at the current rate it’s going. Redundant, repetitive chants paraded as hooks, with no skills in the rhymes, and robotic mechanical tracks with no melody. And gimmics, with the emasculation of men with the tight jeans, pink hoodies and man purses. It’s going to a bad place man.

23.) if you could work with any artist, who would it be?

I would want to raise J Dilla from the dead and work with him in the studio, with Monch. That would be dope.

24.) what country’s do you like best for your genre besides your own?

I can’t say I like a country for any genre but i love the fact that Japan respects HipHop Culture.

25.) what’s your favorite sport?

I’m not into sports.

26.) IF YOUR A MARTIAL ARTS FAN BRUCE LEE SONNY CHIBA OR JET LI?

Bruce Lee of course. Them cats cant fuck with Bruce.
