Lord Apex – “Speak For Yourself”

Slowly but surely, Lord Apex has carved his own path through low-key, lo-fi hip-hop—perhaps you’ve seen one of his tracks featured on a mix, or a video from one of his Smoke Sessions EPs pop up in your feed. The West London rapper often uses his music to contemplate his approach to life, as if seeking the song that will allow him to transcend his mental state. On “Speak for Yourself,” he almost sounds like he has: “I understand I’m anything I wanna be/That’s if I link together words and manifest it properly.” Built on a triumphant piano loop and backed by smooth bongos and triangle hits that lie low in the mix, the production is as ascendant as his declaration. The effect is as pleasant as a walk in the park with a clear head, a feeling matched by the video; Lord Apex strolls around Paris, sits alongside the Seine, and rides a horse in the street. He seems calm and collected, like he’s figured it all out.

With artists releasing songs at a fast and furious pace, it’s difficult for the average hip-hop head to keep track of it all—no matter how tapped in they are. That’s why we created The Ones, a daily post to highlight the song you need to hear.
