    As always, Apathy wins on account of the metaphors he spatters across tracks like so much blood, sweat, and tears.

    He's versatile enough in writing ability to cover any topic from somber to silly, he's clever enough to make what he has to say worth rewinding to catch, and he's not that bad behind the boards as a producer either

    By translating the reverence toward his idols into his own talents instead of living in the past, Apathy continues to earn his keep in a genre that he feels is losing its way.

    Despite a few redundant tracks and a lack of cohesion, Honkey Kong paints a good picture of the impressive output Apathy is capable of in 2011.

    In full, Honkey Kong marries aggressive wordplay and classic beats and the results are universally good.

    Compared to his other releases, Its the same old Apathy and it doesnt really impress me that much. Honkey Kong doesnt have any really good tracks on it either. While it was better then his last release, I still expected better. Collapse
