DJ Clark Kent The Black Apple mixtape Sophia Chang Cover Art

DJ Clark Kent’s Black Apple Mixtape Is All You Can Eat

A mixtape by a DJ from New York could be cliché to locals who’ve heard every damn NY anthem on repeat between game-winning celebrations and lackluster deejays milking the city’s soundtrack to get past the boos. Clark Kent is way smarter with the mixes, as he is executive producing Black Apple. See who whipped up the cover art: Ms. Sophia Chang. Clark Kent’s twist lies in in the soul and disco breaks. If NY rap is getting its groove back, where did you think it came from in the first place? Those oldies but goodies compliment the more recent material from Clark Kent’s Reasonable Doubt collaborator Jay-Z, Kris Kasanova and Jeru The Damaja. Something this definitive should be advertised in the back of a yellow cab. Just don’t hit the “off” button for once.
