Cleverly disguised as a literacy teacher by day, A.P.O.S.T.L.E. transforms into a lyrical superhero for justice by night. His super powers include, a dynamic wordplay and vocabulary which he uses to masterfully conquer social issues, mass media, corrupt politicians, and sucka emcees all in a single bound. By joining forces with fellow superhero DJ Quest, this dynamic duo’s live performance is easily the most powerful Hip Hop stage show in the universe.
The new Album, Lyrical Activism features DJ Quest (Bulletproof Space Travelers), Viveca Hawkins, and fellow Heavyweight Dub Champion member Stero Lion. Lyrical Activism features beats by Etheric Double (Resident Anti-Hero), and was co produced by legendary producer Mark Pistel (Meat Beat Manifesto, Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy, Consolidated, MC 900 ft Jesus). The electro-dub-hop sound-scape is the perfect surface for A.P.O.S.T.L.E.’s intensity. He’s created a lyrical force field where materialism, misogyny and nonsense rhymes cannot penetrate. By contrast to the norm, listeners become engaged, informed and inspired. This leaves A.P.O.S.T.L.E. as the last man stand in above a sea of mediocrity in a dying genre.

With an extensive tour history around the US in festivals and clubs with his former band Heavyweight Dub Champion, this soldier has earned his stripes as a live show veteran. He has additionally cultivated undeniable name recognition in his hometown of Denver CO. for his work as a grassroots community activist, performance poet, ghostwriter, and performer. Recently A.P.O.S.T.L.E. relocated to the Bay Area to combine    all of these efforts into one project. Lyrical Activism is his definitive work that will definitely   be an underground classic.

A superhero’s work is never done. There will always be crowds to rock, microphones to rip and injustice to address. Whether it is the clubs, parties, festivals, lecture halls, classrooms or street corners A.P.O.S.T.L.E. will be there. He has stepped up to answer the call of the masses of Hip Hop fans that are eager for change. We have waited long enough, the time has now come.
