I have an affinity for the sonic creations of Camp Lo and Ski Beatz. Ever since the Camp Lo classic debut Uptown Saturday Night, the synergy has been quite apparent. Ski has always had his nimble fingers on the pulse of Camp Lo's heartbeat, providing a cinematic soundtrack part retro and part neo. What you get is a dope concoction of filtered musicality and avant-garde lyricism steeped in abstract wordplay. It should come as no surprise that the six-cut EP, Fort Apache, is a dope piece of hip hop for year 2012 and beyond. If this is any indication of what to expect from these creative cats in the near future, then the rest of the hip hop community should take notice. Camp Lo still has something to say in their quirky, whimsical, slick, fly manner, and tight jeans and swagger won't change that perception. In conjunction with DD172 and BluRoc Records, Fort Apache is brought to the world as another piece of the Camp Lo puzzle. Take a listen at Fort Apache and let the music speak for itself. Special thanks for the Dame Dash-sponsored DD172 and BluRoc Records for continuing to push the envelope. It seems that Dame is more interested in art instead of strict commerce.
