Apollo Brown stealing from his teacher?
i like Apollo Brown's music, the Gas Mask album was off the hook no doubt...
but this kinda shit seems shady as fuck to me and i gotta call a spade a spade...
first off, for those that don't know, Apollo Brown was once known as "Cheehf" a member of the Wisemen and learned everything about producing from Bronze Nazareth..
from my interview with Bronze/K7 last year:
no doubt the dude has taken the lessons and become a really dope producer.... before the Apollo Brown days, he did this classic joint for Kevlaar:
anyways, i wonder if part of their "falling out" was Apollo having a tendency to blatantly bite from his teacher, cuz this shit just don't look good...

Hassan Mackey & Apollo Brown - The Note
it's one thing to use the same sample for a beat, happens ALL the time...i remember hearing joints where 4th Disciple used a sample that Rza had previously perfected... but he would make a DIFFERENT beat
they've got similar styles (cuz Bronze showed him the ropes) and it's expected that they'll use the same samples occasionally but Brown takes the same joint and uses the same EXACT bars, essentially making the SAME BEAT with his own drum loop...
i dono, looks pretty shady to me, all things considered
