Pyrex Apollo brings Fire Production to King Mook's Black P.O.E.T. project!

Prestigious hip hop producer Pyrex Apollo brings FIRE beats and production to up and coming Georgia stationed lyricist King Mook's newly released project Black P.O.E.T.!  The 6 track EP was entirely, exclusively produced by Pyrex, which gives it a cohesive sound and not all over the place like some of today's hip hop anthologies.  Although Pyrex Apollo composes each of the track on this solid masterpiece, each song manages to stand out and stand alone without sounding repetitive.  Pyrex certainly keeps things interesting with giving each beat it's own unique flavor while maintaining the essence of his signature sound.

Bottom line, if you want to hear some HOT ASS BEATS along with refreshing lyrics with substance then you will certainly want to download this EP.  Click the link below to download and listen to this work of art http://www.audiomack.com/album/king-mook-1/black-poet

Beat Talk: K.W. the Artisan Interview

Check out our exclusive, one on one interview with young rising indie hip hop recording artist K.W. The Artisan.  In this interview with The Beat Yard he talks about new mixtape Paradise Phone Home, favorite producers, who he would like to collaborate with and more!  Read all about it below.  

The Beat Yard:  What's going on K.W. the Artisan?
K.W. The Artisan:  Nothing much. Everything is everything. I can't complain.

The Beat Yard:  You have a mixtape out right now, Paradise Phone Home, could you tell the readers a little something about the mixtape?
K.W. The Artisan:  The mixtape is dope!  It tells story about the path to paradise and what paradise really is.  It contains skits from an anime called "Wolf's Rain." I have a few features, a bunch of bars and even a few songs for the ladies.  There's something for everybody on this one.

The Beat Yard:  What type of beats can be found on this project?
K.W. The Artisan:  There's a couple of 90's beats, a few familiar samples, and some original beats.

The Beat Yard:  Who are your favorite producers / beatmakers?
K.W. The Artisan:  Dr. Dre, Kanye West, Timbaland, Organized Noise, DJ Quik, No I.D., Pharrell, Pete Rock, DJ Premier just to name a few.

The Beat Yard:  Do you producer or make any beats yourself?  If so what do you use?
K.W. The Artisan:  I am just getting into it. I just bought a keyboard from my homie and I'm going to try Garage Band until I get good enough to buy a program.

The Beat Yard:  What producers / beatmakers would you like to work with in the future?
K.W. The Artisan:  Any of the producers listed above. A J. Cole and Big K.R.I.T. collaboration would be dope.

The Beat Yard:  Are you picky about beats or are you the type of artist that can pretty much ride any type of beat?
K.W. The Artisan:  I'm not that picky at all. I listen to a wide range of music so as long as I like it, I can pretty much rap over it.
I am actually. I'm just looking to collaborate with other artists in general. My email is kwtheartisan@gmail.com. My instagram and twitter is @kwtheartisan. My website is www.higherupsuniversity.com
