For the latest single from The Reset, Apollo Brown teams up with Rochester, New York’s own Hassaan Mackey. What stands out the most about the latest single “Odds Ain’t Fair” is its lack of pretension. Mackey doesn’t waste time hyperbolizing stories to give himself any undue credibility. Instead, the song paints a vivid picture of poverty for listeners. From the very beginning Mackey exclaims, “Since you ain’t never been here before, let’s take a little tour.” Mackey proceeds to lead a lyrical tour of the block, as he knows it. Apollo Brown’s soulful instrumental adds a sense of urgency to the song while the chorus, “I’m gonna help myself, I can’t help myself,” compliments that urgency with desperation. “Odds Ain’t Fair” is available on Apollo Brown’s new album, The Reset.
