Apollo Brown’s “Clouds” has been one of the most talked about instrumental projects of the year. So, just before Apollo releases his new project with Hassaan Mackey (Daily Bread), he has decided to release a short animated feature to play as a companion to the “Clouds” track “Tao Te Ching”.
“A Solitary Crane In Winter Snow Needs No Jewels”
The video, directed by Emrys Roberts, unravels at a laid back, easy pace. First, Taoist mountains appear on yellowed parchment before calligraphic I-Ching symbols are drawn, slowly creating the entire Taoist wheel of hexagrams. Finally, the short animated piece evolves from a spinning I-Ching wheel into a spiral galaxy, rotating amongst the stars.

This community outreach event served many purposes, as the teens in attendance not only listened to the wisdom that Malice was dropping, but also had an opportunity to spit in a cypher mixed by DJ Rick Geez, sit back, critique and break down the lyrics to classic hip hop verses, as Malice helped them understand the meaning(s) of the selected rhymes. After the group activities, the teens engaged in a Q & A session with him in regards to his new book, which is available now entitled “Wretched, Pitiful, Poor, Blind & Naked”, as he also shed light on his industry related and life changing stories in addition to other key facts that made him who he is today. Special thanks to Malice, DJ Rick Geez and Jonathan “Luke” Brabham.
