Heavy Souls :: Jonathan Brown Expresses Loss With ‘For Tavis’

Jonathan Brown has become a good friend over the years.  I’ve always appreciated his ability to leave it all on the tape… on the stage… his brutal honesty and ability to be completely open are unparalleled.  As someone who has recently lost a great number of people close to me to that other side of living, I can completely understand what he is going through in For Tavis, a tribute to his recently deceased friend and comrade Tavis Brunson.  This is for all of those… all of us… who have lost someone close to them, and lost a piece of themselves.

Priming Ignition :: Moodie Black Readies The Release Of ‘LUCASACID’

Moodie Black certainly marches to the beat of their own drummer, nobody can deny that.  The outfit continues to push the boundaries of what music can be and how it can affect the listener, both emotionally and intellectually.  With the upcoming release of LUCASACID on the horizon, has been extremely cognizant of providing enough information for the listener to be receptive to whatever the project will deliver.  Between the website, a visit on the Inside The Rapper’s Studio podcast with Jonathan Brown, and the long running Moodhouse podcast (now in its 4th season), anyone wanting to get hip can do so easily.  Word on the street is that the album can drop at anytime, and my advice is to be there when it does.

Life Coaching :: Jonathan Brown’s ‘Risk It All’ EP Now Available

New Orleans-based wordsmith Jonathan Brown has always had a touch for the brutally honest.  His punk-rock influenced hip-hop touches all the proper emotional influential buttons, rather than the purely aesthetic ones.  On his latest project, The Risk It All EP, we find him as candid as ever about topics such as educational policy, government paranoia and life choices, among other things, all wonderfully encapsulated into slightly more than 10 minutes.  Dig it and dig it good.
