ApeFace – Swine [Audio]
Calgary, AB – Calgary-based MC-producer ApeFace (AKA: The Dirty Sample) just hit us with his latest single entitled “Swine” off his forthcoming LP, The Golden Triangle. ApeFace delivers a grimy underground anti-cop joint that samples (what sounds to be) pigs oinking. Hence the title “Swine,” I suppose. The police frequently get referred to as “pigs.” So think of this as a much more passive aggressive take on what N.W.A did with “F**k Tha Police.”
The track kicks off with a newscast voiceover about “troublemakers” who have turned a peaceful protest into a “violent burst of chaos.” Of course – at this point – we’re expecting the voiceover to tell us about the antics of some jerky civilian hooligans. But then the voiceover continues: “The troublemakers carried pepper spray and guns, and were wearing badges.” And there you have it – the police were the troublemakers who turned the peaceful protest upside-down.
ApeFace uses this track to question the law enforcement system – and that’s putting it lightly: “What kind of person it take to be a cop?” Then he goes off on everything he doesn’t like about the police. A few F-bombs happen. And he finishes by questioning, “Who keeps giving all these guns to these assholes?”
