THE PECULIAR PEOPLE: Apostolic

The Peculiar People-Apostolic (actual cover)

A little over ten years ago, the world was introduced to The Peculiar People. The California based aggregation were the backing vocals for the historic Out The Box album from the artist fka Tonex. Now B. Slade, he has brought the group back together for their new single “Apostolic”. As the title may suggest, the song chronicles the experience of growing up in the Apostolic denomination in an urban context that is anything BUT apostolic! This release also features nine remixes, reminiscent of the maxi-single “Ain’t” from the vast catalogue of B. Slade. And yes, this is the precursor for Out The Box 2!! Get ready!
