Ap’s Honkey Kong is finally available (cop it here via iTunes), and he spoke to TheWellVersed about the album, the Get Busy Committee/Demigodz/Army of The Pharaohs connection and more.

TWV: The first single “
,” produced by Evidence is a good description of the career you’ve chosen and how it is to be a starving artist. What were trying to tell people on that track?

Apathy: I just wanted to be honest because it’d gotten to the point where a lot of fans didn’t understand. I would struggle and kill myself to make an album for two years. I’d sacrifice personal relationships, family time, money and all of these other things to make an album and then all of a sudden fans would download it and be pissed off that we were killing their free download link. Then they’d talk shit about how they wouldn’t support anymore because we’re paid. Some of these fans thought that we were swimming around in piles of money like we were these paid dudes and complete assholes for wanting to get paid for putting out music. I thought it was f*cked up that these fans who would go to work everyday, would turn around and think I would just work for free. So I wanted people to see that we’re neck to neck, I work just like them. I go through the same bullshit, I pay my bills, I have to eat. I’m not ballin. This is a career for me. I have friends that went to college and have careers and make more than I do. It’s not some glamorous rap sh*t. I wanted people to know that things are fucked up right now.
