The sophmore release from Derty Sesh titled 'Apology Accepted' was released on Monday and with no where near the same backlash from his first release 'Sic Love.' In receiving this album I was excited to see the features and listened to I am Here first because Erakah was featured. Instantly, I felt this song was more mature and smoother than anything from the first album and felt drawn to the music, leaving all controversy and pre-conceived notions behind.
Working my way back to the beginning of the Album and following the journey and process that Derty Sesh AKA Nathan King wanted to portray, the title track 'Apology Accepted' starts with a lead of rap talking about his first album and his life. One of the lyrics in the rap talks about how 'this is Derty Sesh but you will see Nathan when this album is done' and each track represents a part of the journey.
Let me be feat Jae'O is a track about being the son of Mike King and forging his own way in the music industry. All the raps flow nicely through out the album, although there is a song Revenge seems very angry and erratic.
As a whole, this album is more understated than the last, with moments of sweet lyric and honest rap. From start to finish this album deserves to be given a chance to change your mind about Derty Sesh the controversial rapper and start to hear Nathan the musician.
