ApeFace – Manta Rays In Space ft. Hash Mills [Audio]
Calgary, AB – Calgary-based rapper-producer Apeface just hit us with the second single offering off his forthcoming project, The Golden Triangle LP. This track is titled “Manta Rays In Space,” and it features a hot little feature from Brownsville’s own Hash Mills (y’all might remember the two previously collaborated on the Winnfield & Vega EP).
This song is pretty self-explanatory. It will take you on a trip. To outer space. With Apeface. And Hash Mills. And the Manta Rays. I mean, Ape usually runs pretty deep. So I’m sure there’s some underlying societal commentary here that is going way over my head. So for now, I’ll just roll with what I hear.
Ape’s got this a darker pessimistic vibe to his rhymes. You’ll notice he also distorts his voice so that he sounds that much grimier. So it’s not one of those trips of happy oblivion. This is NOT an episode of The Magic School Bus. This is darker. This is one of those creepy trips that inevitably sours up in an hour or two. So even though you’ll find yourself vibing out on this one, you’ll probably still feel a little unsettled. And that is the brilliance that is ApeFace production. If he wants you to feel uncomfortable and unsettled, he can do that via his production.
Also, I’d just like to point out that Ape totally just made a rap track about Manta Rays In Space; Manta Rays in motherf**king space! Who even does that?
