Check out this new single, Audible Doctor Feat. Guilty Simpson, “Leave Me Alone”, off “Can’t Keep The People Waiting” EP. Audible Doctor is one member of the Brown Bag Allstars, which includes MC’s, DJ’s and Producers who met and formed their crew around the time they were all working at Fatbeats Records Store NYC.
Guilty Simpson comes off strong over Audible Doc’s beat. But Doc get’s busy as well, proving his skills on the mic as well as behind the boards. For more info, check him at audibledoctor.com and check out his appearance on MCMI RADIO: Real Hip Hop. Real Talk, as well as some of his other releases:
Soul Khan first gained notoriety as a battle MC, in the GrindTime East Coast division. From there he became one of the most sought after battlers in battle leagues all over the world. Mostly retired from battling, Soul Khan is focused on music, hitting us with his own unique perspectives on life, over original and innovative production. This song Supreme Righteous, is the second single from Soul Khan’s upcoming free album produced by Walker Swain.
The Brooklyn-based MC is a member of the hip hop collective Brown Bag Allstars, who will be featured on Jan. 27th @ SRB in Brooklyn, as part of the MASTERS OF THE UNDERGROUND Showcase Series, opening for ORGANIZED KONFUSION (Pharoahe Monch & Prince Po), OC & LARGE PROFESSOR, celebrating the 20 Yr Anniversary of Organized Konfusion’s album “STRESS: THE EXTINCTION AGENDA”.
Murder, indeed. This beat is a ‘Kraken’, so I guess the MC’s spittin’ on the track are Perseus? … I don’t know where that metaphor is going, but what I’m trying to say is, this track bumps! So bump that shit, lol.
â€œRhett Committed Murderâ€, off the Brown Bag AllStars‘ EP, Brown Label 2., produced by DJ Rhettmattic. Video directed by Alex F. Ghassan.
Sometimes you see a recognizable name who is buzzin’ right now (i.e. Royce) featured on someone’s record, so you give it a second glance. Other times it’s a known producer who always brings heat (Marco Polo), so no matter who is on the record you are going to check it out. Or maybe it’s a certain crew known for bringin’ the ruckus (Brown Bag AllStars) that’s associated with the project that has your attention. Koncept doesn’t really need all that, but the fact that he has all of it should tell you that there’s a reason why. A reason why his crew is known, a reason why he respects good producers and they respect him back, a reason why he can collab with the best of MC’s because like minds think alike and real recognize real talent.
Call it a “tribute”, “remake”, “remix”, or whatever – this is a bunch of MCees (albeit dope ones) droppin’ verses on a known beat (a dope one). But I guess what’s cool about the way they marketed this is that it draws attention to the original and gives res[ect where respect is due – to The Beatnuts, so I am not mad at that.
Another way to show respect is to not be wack over the beat. The Brown Bag AllStars (BBAS) are not taking themselves too seriously with this one. The crew just wants to party and bullshit, or more accurately, “f*ck, drink beer and smoke some sh*t”.I think it stays true to the Beatnuts typical subject matter and it’s refreshing to hear MCs just having a good time on a track, not concerned with guns, fighting and other macho posturing.
DJ Brace laced the cuts. As always, with a posse cut, especially from a crew, you may wonder “who bodies it the most?” For me it’s Soul Khan with lines like “I got 40 oz abs, fuck a six-packshorty, if its not around the couch you gotta get that for me,” but you don’t have to agree with me.
