Apex News Updates
With CD Baby doing away with its artist pages Apex Studio is currently in the process of switching it's full catalog of instrumentals over to Beat Stars. Right now we have Apex Beats volumes 7 and 6 available. The prices on the instrumentals have changed as well as adding some bulk discounting for buying multiple instrumentals.
Check out the new look and feel of the new player/store and like always spread the word if you know people looking for beats/ instrumentals for their next project.
We finally have a set release date for “CRACK” (Apex’s EP) which is set to release on September 1st 2018. Originally “CRACK” was supposed to be an full length album, but ended up being only an EP. Knowing Apex he has his reasons for this; but what exactly are they? Apex noted that the only thing left to work on for “CRACK” was just the visuals. Audio was complete and that he would do a re listen to see if any changes needed to be made, but overall the album cover is still being worked on and video shoots are in the process. Considered to be an emotional EP coming from the have fun, party style of Apex‘s rap “CRACK” is sure to be an interesting wondering what would it sound like.
Let’s go ahead and add another collection to the sin series. The next release for the sin collection will be “Greed”. Just about every two years Apex will add another sin to his Pandora’s Box. First we had “Lust“, then “Wrath” and now we will have “Greed”. The set release date will be Oct 1st 2018 prepping it for Halloween month.
Remember when “I’m Just a Machine” (Apex mixtape) started hitting the air waves and it was like all the machines all over the world was having a party… We’ll it is rumored that Apex has recently been in the works on making vol 3 of “I’m Just an Machine”. Talk about moving none stop. Not just to the point that Apex works on his music and still works with other artist and managing his businesses; but where do you find time to actually work on your own music is the question. Knowing Apex he would have a smart answer for an reply. As of right now there is no official release date seeing how the “CRACK EP” and “Greed” will be releasing this year. Currently the following artist will appear on “I’m Just an Machine Pt3”; Mr Mel the Riddler, KL Bridges, Insano, Yo Star, and Roski. I’m am sure that this list will grow because if this machine vol is anything like the others; there will be a different feature on every song. As more news develops we will keep you posted.

"Rated R" is set to be released on Oct 13th 2015; which will give Mr Mel the Riddler two things to celebrate; his birthday and a album release. With this being said expect things to get a little crazy around Apex Records.
So far "Rated R" is said to be released digitally with heavy promotion/ advertising work. Apex stated that promotion will be so insane that his face will be literally everywhere. Dontavious Dixon (Apex Records CEO) wanted to sell hard copies but instead decided to go full digital. Seeing how sells from “Riddle Me This" were mostly digital; he feels that going full digital is the best way to go. He also stated that if there are hard copies the amount will be very limited.
Apex Records announces the video tapping of Mr Mel the Riddler working on his next album "POV". Recording will start this week at Apex Records and footage will be placed on YOUTUBE the beginning of next year. This will give fans a new way to see Mr Mel the Riddler and also see what he actually goes through when at the studio with Apex as his engineer; while working on projects. Be prepared to see numerous takes, bloopers, real studio footage and more straight from Apex Records.
