Breaking News!

The DMV's own, Kev Brown has announced his first solo rap album since 2005. Hailing from Palmer Park in Landover, Maryland specifically, after a 13 year hiatus, the producer/MC has finally prepared the sophomore sequel to 2005's influential cult classic, "I Do What I Do.” Entitled, "Homework", KB and Redefinition Recs have partnered to release an LP the game has been missing for too long. Now 13 years is a long wait, but don't think Kev has been idle in obscurity. He has been involved with several collaborative projects, garnered tons of production credits and released over a half dozen beat tapes during that time frame. It is also important to note, that he was in no rush to drop another rap album and preferred to compose "Homework" organically and at his own pace, in the comforts of his own home; hence the title.

Though Brown is known as one of Hip Hop's elite producers from heavyweights like Diamond D, Pete Rock, Busta Rhymes, Peter Rosenberg, 9th Wonder and Jazzy Jeff, he is a man of many hats. If you happen to meet him in person, he may be seen rocking a low pulled bucket hat, but he has been known toggle between titles of producer, MC, recording/mixing engineer, A&R and executive producer to boast a few. You might even catch him harmonizing on the occasional background vocal when he's inspired. To Kev's fans from all over world, they don't see a man of multiple hats, but a king wearing a crown. Even the likes of BJ Armstrong from Chicago Bulls first 3-Peat fame has been spotted publicly showing Kev's music appreciation. Kev has inspired thousands of aspiring fans as well as his peers. His trademark sound has been emulated over the last decade by so many artists and his sonic impact is very evident even among his contemporaries.

It all started on the Akai MPC2000xl and the rest is history (It should be noted that Kev appeared in one of or possibly even the very first “beat making” videos ever posted on youtube way back in 05/06). Kev Brown's debut album was groundbreaking in so many areas that the recording itself and Kev is cemented as legendary. It would be no surprise that Hip Hop would ask for the next installment and he's nowhere near done leaving his mark. "Homework" is a seamless nonstop exhibition of KB's range.

Kev raps confidently and wisely throughout the album's 27 tracks. yrically it's personal, introspective, comedic, observatory and witty delivered in Kev's smooth baritone style. Vocals are equally complimented by instrumentals all produced by the man himself and fluidly morph into instrumental compositions too good to be considered interludes.

These days Kev produces on whatever he feels like. The album was composed using several different samplers and recording technologies, but the vibe is never compromised. Returning to his roots, this a very "Hip Hop" album. The drums are are hard, the recordings are unpolished, samples are obscure, manipulated and unrefined.

"Homework" is the perfect game plan for today's climate. And for those who haven't, do your homework on this man. You won't be disappointed.

01. Intro
02. Still Triumphant
03. Back Home

where are you getting that gino?

in the OP it says "Kev raps confidently and wisely throughout the album's 27 tracks."

that makes it seem like he'll be rapping on the majority of the album

It really is...

For someone truly interested and invested in beatmaking, there is a whole lot to study, enjoy and digest in between these 29 tracks...

Tells a great story w few words.

To me it sounds like a lazy effort. It's like a combination of a beat tape (which I never like really) + an EP

I can see the potential, but he is no rookie having to proof that he has potential....

The cover alreayd made me think the album would be something like that...

Well they are lo budget LOL

I get what you saying, but I kinda like the DIY aesthetic of his camp, when youve got the tools mastered but still wanna play around instead of goin tight n polished

I do like the Low budget stuff but this album sounds like a not much effort ep combined with a demo beat tape.

I guess he will release another album soon and this one was just to test people interested or something.


If I had to listen to some new Low Life Care music I would definitely listen to latest Kaimbr album. It's way better than this one (and I assume Kev produced there also)
