“Which One Will it Be”

Just as Mr Mel the Riddler finishes up his album “Arkham City” we hear that Apex Records will be signing a new artist and managing more artist as well. It is not yet sure as to who this new artist will be, but we think that it may be “Chyna Macra” aka The Future. A solo artist which had a production deal from Apex Studio in the middle of 2005. Sources say that it also could be “Yo Star” from the UK which was recently in the studio with Apex working on a song with him. Also lets not forget about “Nero”; who was signed to Apex Studio for a Promo EP which Apex and him recorded a song titled “Got That” (which is the #1 song on the LUST Album). There are is really no telling who could be the next artist signed to Apex Records; but one thing is for sure…. it will happen next week.

Apex Records


Recently artist Apex has been out of work with a rare breathing disorder. His breathing had gotten really shallow Sunday night September 30th. He was transported to CMC University that night by his wife where he was quickly aided. He was given breathing treatments until early Monday mourning and was sent home for bed rest until further following up with his doctor this coming Friday. Apex was told to take take the week off from work, but will he…NO! He has received plenty of rest and has been taken his prescription which seems to have been doing him good. Even though he will be returning back to work this Thursday October 5th he will not be recording anything. We will be making sure that he takes everything slow and relax.


We have made some changes to the Apex Records website. The recording side of the website is still intact and nothing has changed from it, but we have made some small changes to the record label side. You will see that we have changed the artist pages; those signed and managed under Apex Records. They now include a new layout and current releases from the artist as well. The Vault page has been changed to the MEDIA page. Nothing on this page has been changed, but we did upgrade the Soundcloud module so that listeners could like, comment, and browse the current songs in the playlist. We will be upgrading the STORE portion of the site along with adding a TOUTS page. We will still keep everything streamlined as to make sure the website loads quick and is easily viewable from desktop and mobile devices.


We are looking for Mr Mel the Riddler to perform one last time for this year until his album is released next year. So far it has been a good year as Mr Mel the Riddler has been doing his thing along side Apex and other guest artist on stage. The show is set for November, but we do not have a set date yet. The show will be booked through Afton Shows and it is guaranteed to be a banger.

Apex Records Updates


Apextacy Remix feat. Mr Mel The Riddler is now available in IHeart Radio. This was a shock to Apex Records artist Apex and Mr Mel the Riddler. After all the music submissions to IHeart Radio they have finally picked one; said Apex. We plan on doing some major advertising about our music being in IHeart Radio, but we sill haven’t had time to enjoy the success with the current projects which we have coming up; Apex noted.



The two shows that was setup by Apex Records through Afton Shows was a big success. It gave independent artist the chance to meet and open up for Apex Records artist Mr Mel the Riddler. Money Man was supposed to be in attendance, but was unavailable to show up… so the show still went on. The first show consisted of Mr Mel the Riddler performing some new songs from his mixtape “Arkham City” along with the remix of one of his album songs “Going Hard Remix” featuring Gemi and performing the Apextacy Remix with Apex himself. Talk about crowd stoppers; Apex and the Mr Mel the Riddler make a great duo on stage together when performing songs. After a fun night performing it was no time to relax because they hard to do “Go Hard or Go Home Part 2” within the following week. Go Hard or Go Home Part 2 was exactly what the name says. The opening acts for this event was TMH (@TMH_MUSIC), Charlotte America (which did not show), Gemi (@Gemizajewel), and Mr Mel the Riddler.  If you missed it you missed a good performance which topped the first. We don’t want to spoil this event footage so check out the video feed for it.

Love Fade Away

For “Love Fade Away”; this album was produced by Apex and CJ Beatz for Apex Studio recording artist Chyna aka Future. “Love Fade Away” was never released in stores digitally or physically… why might you ask? Because the timing wasn’t right. At the current time when “Love Fade Away” was completed Apex felt that the time wasn’t right to release it to the public. Very little people heard the project and that’s how Apex wanted to keep it. Now with time on his side Apex called up Chyna and said now the world is ready for “Love Fade Away”. Releasing next month in all digital stores be sure to year a style of Rap/Hip Hop that you have never heard before; as we gather more information about Chyna and the release of “Love Fade Away” we will keep you posted.
