iTunes Review

Both longstanding fixtures in the indie-rap circuit, LMNO (from Long Beach, down with the Visionaries) and Kev Brown (repping D.C. and the Low Budget crew), reunite as "James Brown," for a sequel to their 2008 collaboration. Produced entirely by Kev, it flips and chops many old joints from the late, great Godfather of Soul, reworking them enough to maintain the funkiness but still create something entirely new. The lyricism isn't particularly earth shattering, but their interplay and chemistry on the mic are impossible to hate on. Ideal for fans of West Coast indie-rap (think Stones Throw, Mystik Journeymen, Dilated Peoples), this is straight feel-good boom-bap with no time for gangsta posturing or pre-set synth beats. Cameos come from Declaime, Chali 2Na, Kenn Starr, and others; check out "We Stay Rockin," "Do It Again," and "Guaranteed."

There was also a thriving underground hip-hop scene in southern California, which inspired the budding musician to begin crafting his own demo tapes. The hard work paid off, eventually netting LMNO a verse on "B.F. Sound Check," a track from Circle of Power's 1993 self-titled album. However, his true break arrived in 1995, when friends Key-Kool and DJ Rhettmatic released Kozmonautz -- not only setting the...
