SuperHero Debut Album: The Middle
Atlanta based rappers Apollo and DJ Ghost have teamed up to form superHero. They’re a hip hop duo that tips its hat toward the comic-book-themed backpack-rap side of the genre. Think: Del The Funky Homosapien or MF doom. Not an easy genre to successfully break into, but it seems like superHero is well on their way to doing just that.
Their debut album “The Middle” is like an album in comic book form. The mood of the record takes you on a journey from amped up tracks like “Audio Dope” to more soulful joints like “Lifted” or “Playstation.” Samples from movies like Batman and Spiderman fill in the interludes along with some very tastefully placed cuts from Lana Del Rey and Kendrick Lamar. It’s a story of a super hero who is questioning the difference between good and evil. It’s the story of a super hero who has lost his way.
But talking about the album doesn’t do it justice. You need to hear it. Stream the album for free on the superHero Soundcloud page or download the it on their record label’s website: The Round Table.
