Che Noir & Apollo Brown - As God Intended Album cover

You’ve heard of Rapsody?! Well, don’t worry about her because Che Noir is the best female spitting right now and can even hold her own against some femcee legends! Not only is she one of the best female spitters she’s better than most men believe me she is that good and with Detroit native, Apollo Brown on the boards I knew this release was gonna be something special, and it is. As God Intended is a very smooth album and it just rolls perfectly like time itself.

Che really shines lyrically on this album and not only does she lay down the street influenced bars and dope punchlines and metaphors she shows how good she really is at story telling. Usually I like to go through the good tracks or all if short but this is a full length album and has too many good tracks to analyse, in fact every track is worthy. Will dive into a select few and then let the rest speak for itself. Hustle Don’t Give features Black Thought and Che holds her own with such a legend and one of hip hops best lyricists! This track is a dream come true, Thought over an Apollo Brown beat is enough to get the juices flowing but with an artist like Che Noir it’s impeccable.

12 Hours is such a good story telling track it can be compared to Big Ls ‘The Heist’ and the catch at the end nails it. Hold it down is another track to mention due to it featuring Ty Farris, who is another great new artist who’s been making noise and this is a great feature verse. Worth Gold is a percy of mine as that samples Apollo uses is so dope and the accompanying beat with Che’s bars is impeccable.

Bangers: Blood Is Thicker, Hustle Don’t Give, 12 Hours, Hold It Down, Daddy’s Girl, Worth Gold, 94

Score: 10/10 This is a perfect album. It gives us both New York and Detroit flavas and both Che and Apollo brung their A game and really nailed it. It rolls like an audio film and that’s what hip hop is about. Self Expression and Story Telling.
