The Left began as a simple phone conversation between two artists displaying mutual respect for each other's craft. Detroit staples Apollo Brown (Producer) and Journalist 103 (Emcee) turned the prospect of a couple random songs into an album considered by many tastemakers to be the best underground hip hop LP of 2010. Shortly after starting the album in early 2009, the duo brought in DJ Soko to provide cuts for the album and act as the official DJ for The Left's live performances. Gas Mask is indeed The Left's debut album, but the rookie producer Apollo Brown has certainly been accumulating accolades as of late. In 2008 he won the producer showcase at Scribble Jam. Then, in 2009, Apollo won the Detroit Red Bull Big Tune Championships and went on to the Atlanta Finals. In 2010 he signed with Mello Music Group and made waves with his scorching debut album, The Reset. Meanwhile, The Left's mic master, Journalist 103, is just as seasoned. Despite this being his first wide public display, he worked with the legendary Detroit emcee Proof of D12 before his passing.
