Artist: Sean Brown
DJ: DJ ill Will & DJ Tech
Released: November 27, 2012
When we first saw the title of this mixtape, we yawned. Honestly, we could do without another J-Dilla or Tribe tribute mixtape. Last year, we brought you the Tribe/Pharcyde mixtape, which was just too good to pass up.
Now, we HAVE to hip you to this young cat, Sean Brown, who, despite our tribute fatigue, captivated us with a fresh sound, which looks forward and pays respect to the Golden Era at the same time. Honestly, we loved this one from beginning to end and hope this brother gets his due props. Lyrically strong and clever and beats that thump and move. Period. Well Done.
