Arsenal Malfunction great album, love the sound and flow of it. Favorite track: Sometimes.

Exursus Great record. Homophobic Rap Cats is just what I needed after Meek Mill and Rick Ross’ idiotic collab. So much talent, smarts and heart in this. It bumps and preaches just the way this old skool dad loves. Favorite track: Homophobic Rap Cats.

nikianarchy333 It's actually cruel to have to choose a favorite track. This entire album flows smoothly and has grooved beats and melody with original flow and a fricking saxophone to bring it all home. Equally in love with Chess like Check, Homophobic Rap Cats, Pharmacy, Stand and Deliver, Sometimes, and I'm Gone and then you get hit with the Outro Bars. Just buy it. Earworms. Favorite track: Stand and Deliver.

Ersatz Splynter: "I started working on "Apartment Number One" which I recorded all here at my place, two years ago. It was my first time producing, recording and mixing an album myself, but it was something I had been wanting to try for a while. I struggled with it a lot because of the odd, unconventional set up, but after a lot of patience was able to knock out a few tracks. I ended up recording around 20 tracks, but a lot of the beats were too awkward and off beat so I shortened it down to the ones I could listen to without cringing at how off beat the loops were. I didn't have any way to record for a while after my old computer stopped working, so I had to find a cheap way to record since I didn't have any money after just moving into a new place and being laid off from work. I hadn't recorded any new music in a year and being without a set up I started to get really bummed about it, so I ended up getting an old computer from my friend Onewerd for a pretty player price on which I recorded the whole thing. I wasn't able to make beats on it since it wasn't compatible with my midi controller so I pretty much made the beats in a loop pedal using a drum pad, and micro korg, completely unquantized, then recorded into pro tools. From there I added sax and anything else extra and gave it a little polish. Then recorded my vocals and sent the tracks to Michael at FBR and he made it sound like actual songs instead of just crusty lo-fi loops with raps over it."
