Apathy

Born Chad Bromley to teenage parents in a working-class area of Connecticut, rapper Apathy first discovered hip-hop at age five when his uncle played him Chaka Khan's 1984 cover of the Prince song "I Feel for You," which featured Melle Mel rapping. Instantly hooked, Apathy began listening to rap incessantly, soaking up the sounds of Gang Starr, Jay-Z, Nas, and Organized Konfusion, among others, as well as writing his own rhymes. He made his debut on Jedi Mind Tricks' 1997 debut LP, The Psycho-Social, Chemical, Biological, and Electro-Magnetic Manipulation of Human Consciousness, adding verses to three tracks. Shortly after, he was releasing singles on Bronx Science Records. It was through that label that Apathy met up with Celph Titled, the producer/MC originally from Florida who had worked for Bronx Science's distributor. The two founded the Demigodz crew (with 7L & Esoteric, El Fudge, Louis Logic, Open Mic, and Rise as the other initial members) and in 2002 they released their EP The Godz Must Be Crazy. The EP was enough to gain attention from major labels, including Interscope, which wanted to sign Apathy and Celph, and Atlantic, which was more interested in Apathy as a solo artist. Eventually, Apathy chose the latter, and soon began recording tracks for his debut. However, disagreement over the direction of the album would delay progress considerably. After a few years, the rapper signed a distribution deal with indie label Babygrande, which helped release Eastern Philosophy in 2006 (many of the other tracks that he had already written for Atlantic ended up on the mixtapes It's the Bootleg, Muthafuckas!, Vol. 1 and Where's Your Album?!!) while negotiations for the major-label debut -- which was tentatively titled Bearer of Bad News -- continued (despite the drawn-out process, Apathy would leave Atlantic in 2009). To appease fans during the period of label limbo, Apathy released yet another mixtape, Baptism by Fire, which came out on the Demigodz Records.

In 2009, Apathy formed the Get Busy Committee with Styles of Beyond's Ryu and producer Scoop DeVille (Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg). They would release one album -- Uzi Does It -- before returning to their solo careers in 2013.

The same year he formed Get Busy, Apathy issued his second studio LP, Wanna Snuggle?, which featured appearances by Phonte, Cypress Hill's B-Real, Celph Titled, and Ryu. He followed with Honkey Kong in 2011, which was bundled with the Primate Mindstate EP. The collection included spots by Celph Titled, Xzibit, Mad Lion, and Esoteric, with some production by DJ Premier.

Collaboration with his original Demigodz crew continued, as Apathy and Celph Titled released a teaser track "Demigodz Is Back" a few months after Honkey Kong. To further stoke interest, It's the Bootleg, Muthafuckas! Vol. 3: Fire Walk with Me appeared the next year, featuring guest spots from Nas, Xzibit, DJ Premier, Royce Da 5'9, and B-Real. Demigodz would finally return in 2013 with Killmatic, featuring contributions from all six members.

Apathy's non-Demigodz output continued with Connecticut Casual (with Harry Fraud), Weekend at the Cape, and It's the Bootleg, Muthafuckas! Vol. 4: The Black Lodge in the summer of 2015. His fifth solo LP would not arrive until the next year. Handshakes with Snakes (Dirty Version Records) was issued in June 2016 and featured familiar faces like Celph Titled, Blacastan, and B-Real, along with Twista and Bun B. ~ Marisa Brown & Neil Z.

if you don't know alot about Apathy before you judge listen to more before you judge . He also a part of the Demigods & Jedi Mind Tricks. Also some of the best samples most heads wouldn't even try like the rocky theme in Demigods Are Back. the white Stripes beat on it takes a seven army nation to hold us back
Report as inappropriate
he is definitely live . Also, right on point on how the streets from hartford to New Haven are. I'm from New Haven on a regular basis i see &deal with all he rhymes about . He may not be on the cover of all the overrated magazines or chart topping,but Ap, Demigods & jedi mind Tricks have always brought the raw unwatered down underground since the late 90's &have never souled out.

I like underground hip-hop, but this guy is kinda weak sauce. No disrespect to those who like it. Sounds a little like Eminem (though I'm sure that's not the first time someone said it)... admittedly only heard one song Makin' Music... but weak flow. AND I hate Waka, etc. (aka the get money machine).
