Apocraphe - No Way Out Single & Video


Following on from 150k streams on Spotify and 100k views across Youtube for the first two singles, Apocraphe returns with 'No Way Out' featuring Misiek.

A slick slice of bilingual emotional hiphop.

In the final lead up to the release of the album 'The Escapist Handbook' on the 1st June, Apocraphe presents his third single from the project, this time featuring young Toulouse (France) up-and-comer Misiek of Les Autres (CMF Records).


Over the melancholic strings and driving drums of the instrumental by DeZordre (CMF Records) the two rappers engage in a bilingual back and forth discussion of the traps we create for ourselves, patterns of behaviour that we think will distract us from our pain but instead form our own self-created prisons. Despite the weighty subject matter, there remains an air of poignant beauty and the possibility of liberation in the song, particularly the triple layered chorus of singing and rapping.  The single is finished off with an incredible video filmed and edited by Zomboi.
