This rap album was recorded entirely on an Apple Store display computer
Meet Prince Harvey, the New York city rapper who spent 16 weeks creating an album on an Apple Store display computer in SoHo. According to Harvey and The Daily Beast, he was forced to record the album, titled “PHATASS” (Prince Harvey at The Apple Store: Soho), on the display computers after his own computer crashed.
“It wasn’t my plan to record this at the Apple Store. First, my computer died. Then my external [hard drive] died,” Harvey told Daily Beast “New York is expensive. I couldn’t just buy another laptop. I just thought, ‘I’m going to die before anyone knows I’m hot.’”
So far only two cuts from the album have been released, “The New Black” and “Sometimes” and are described as Acapella hip hop. The beats themselves are all created using only human voices and beat boxing.
Now we’re just waiting for the first electronic dance music track made in the same way… it definitely won’t take 4 months.
