While everyone else merges and follows the traffic jam on that nicely paved 4-lane highway to the right, you'll always have those few who prefer to follow that narrow, unpaved road to The Left, curious to see where it leads. In this case, The Left leads you straight to Detroit.
Apollo's hard drums and dirty, static-filled sample chops coupled with Journalist's rugged, politically charged flow and DJ Soko's raw, timeless cuts led to the creation of what is now The Left's debut album, Gas Mask. Apollo Brown turns in his grimy production, capturing the streets of Detroit better than almost anyone out there. Likewise, the album's guest features are as rugged as they come, featuring Kool G Rap, MarvWon, and Guilty Simpson.
