Hailing from White City, West London, 24-year-old rapper Lord Apex (aka Sensei, Yardie Miyagi, or AP) has become an underground favourite thanks to his compellingly laid-back style.
Multiple previous releases chart his evolution; from early offerings influenced by his favourite producer/rappers J Dilla, Madlib, MF DOOM; to the 2018 S.O.I.L. EP produced by The Kount; through to more fully-formed records culminating in 2019’s Smoke Sessions Vol 2 (streamed > 6m times) with highlights like Spliff In the Morning (current at 2m YouTube views), EM3 (1.3m views), SSV2 and being recently chosen to support Yasiin Bey and Freddie Gibbs on their European tour.
Championed by the likes of Complex, CRACK Magazine, KISS FM & BBC 1Xtra alongside impressive sessions with both COLORS & Boiler Room. Apex is starting to make a serious name for himself in the rap world.
His latest project Supply & Demand alongside New York producer V Don immediately sold out when physicals were launched with London based label Daupe! The album also finished in numerous album of the year lists (Offie Mag, Backpackerz & the printed B-Boy Document Magazine)
2021 began with an inclusion on Complex UK’s Rappers to Watch for the year, closely followed by the Supply & Demand Deluxe dropping in early February featuring new collaboration with Westside Gunn & Fly Anakin. An 80% sold out tour officially sponsored by Carhartt is booked for April with the SSV3 album set to drop on 4/20.
