Producer Apollo Brown Announces New Instrumental Album “Thirty Eight”

(AllHipHop News) Detroit’s own Apollo Brown is set to release the new instrumental album Thirty Eight, but the Mello Music group signee says don’t call it a beat tape. The follow-up to 2011’s Clouds is being described as a bridge between Blaxploitation soundtracks of the 1970’s and Hip Hop records that used their samples.
