A little over a year ago Apollo Brown began working on a project with Guilty Simpson. At the same time label-mate Gensu Dean began working with Planet Asia on a record. The two producers lamented the other working with Guilty and Asia prior to them getting a chance to. So an idea hatched: Apollo would take half of Gensu’s album vocals with Planet Asia and rework them into the vision he had, while Dean would do the same to Guilty Simpson’s verses. The result is one project with two sides: “Abrasions: Stitched Up” and “Dice Game “Shaken” – coming out January 14, 2014.
