With upcoming solo and collaborative projects in the works that feature artists such as Grap Luva, Hassaan Mackey, Toine (from DTMD), Sean Born, Kenn Starr, Quartermaine and others, Kev is set to satisfy his long-time fans and new listeners alike as he releases a barrage of quality records.

Sean is gearing up to release his debut album, Behind the Scale on Feb. 17th (available for pre-order now), and for the first leak, he enlists Kev Brown for an ill, dusty instrumental with a dark piano loop and Daily Bread’s Hasaan Mackey.
PREVIOUS: Sean Born – Go Hard (prod. Kev Brown)
“Go Hard” first saw the light of day as a rough draft, clean version way back in 2009 when Sean Born first anticipated the coming “Behind The Scales” project. Two years later, the album is ready and the original track is back in it’s full uncensored glory. Behind it all Kev Brown layers piano keys, drawn out horns, snares that stick, and the dusty static of spinning vinyl.
“It’s Born baby, I’m back, back on that real shit, I’m back G and I pack, trappin’ it real sick, I’m back baby, I’m back, back on that ill shit, y’all rap ni&&as is wack, rappin that bullshit”
Never Was Yours is a stark look at life’s often unforgiving path. The recognition of everything’s impermanance is reflected upon throughout the tracks lyrical display of wisdom. Has-Lo tackles aging, disapointment, loss, financial woes, and the devils deals we make to attain success, all with a stoic’s calm and unflinching eye of a narrative reporter.
Rain and Reek go over some vintage-sounding boom-bap by the Low Budget Crew producer-on-the-mic. Reek’s verse… wow, okay.

Down bottom is a cut off Kaimbr & Kev Brown’s The Alexander Green Project LP available now (certain retailers are already sold out) titled The Combination. Features Kenn Starr, Sean Born, Early Reed, Marshall Law, Quartermaine, Eye-Q, & Hassaan Mackey.
We are sharing a mini-documentary style video that we shot while Kev and Al (Kaimbr) were in New York a couple weeks ago. They made the trip from Maryland to Brooklyn for the Fat Beats Record Store Day Event and to film the music video for Go Green, so while they were here Damu The Fudgemunk decided to conduct an interview with them about the making of their LP.
Support this and cop on 12″ or CD.
Redefinition Records just dropped this video. Shot live at our pop up shop last month, a sneak peak at our warehouse where we ship out thousands of LPs/CDs/45s and 12′s daily to record stores all over the world! Buy The Alexander Green Project LP before it sells out!
