Anthony Peaks (December 26, 1964 - July 4, 2014), better known as Apache, was an American rapper.

Apache emerged from New Jersey in the late 1980s as a front man for the Flavor Unit, a hip-hop group.[1] He first appeared on the Flavor Unit album, The 45 King Presents The Flavor Unit, in 1990. Apart from his individual records, he also featured on the albums of Naughty By Nature, Queen Latifah, 2Pac and Fat Joe.[2]

Apache signed with Tommy Boy/Warner Bros. Records and released his debut album, Apache Ain't Shit (1993), which peaked at number 69 on the Billboard 200 and No. 15 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums.[3] Also featured on the album was the single "Gangsta Bitch," which peaked at number 67 on the Billboard Hot 100 and 11 on the Hot Rap Singles.[4] Apache released the single "Do Fa Self" in 1993.
