With the immense talent coming from the DMV now — whether it’s longstanding veterans like Wale, the riot-starting street raps of Shy Glizzy, or even newcomers and risers like Innanet James — one can’t forget those who laid the foundation in the start.
Enter: Kev Brown.
The veteran producer/rapper/Low Budget Crew member has been crafting bangers since stepped on the scene over a decade ago (“Albany” “Say Sumthin'” and “Beats ‘n’ Rhymes” still knock to this day). However, despite the numerous mixtapes, production credits and collaborations over the years, Brown has only put out one solo album throughout his entire career: 2005’s I Do What I Do.
That changes today (August 2nd), though, with the release of his long-awaited sophomore album Homework. Brown offers up a massive, 27-track project that he describes as a “half-vocal/half-instrumental LP of introspective flows and head-nodding beats.” And to think, it only took 13 years!
