sleigh bells n' all that in the background...

"christmas wish"

This is another joint from the a.t.o.j. days... We recorded this for the movie "friday after next" hoping 2 get it placed on the soundtrack.(the christmas "friday" movie with money mike. Craig n day day are "top flight" security at the begining) Well... pretty needless to say, it didnt get picked. I think its a dope song tho. It kinda sounds like a classic soul christmas song. Not cheesy like a lot of contemporary holiday songs. Tanzania and I wrote and recorded this joint 2gether one weekend years ago...02?, 03? ...cant really remember.

Tanzania...

once again


blud bro:

" i read somewhere that Kev Brown was a asshole and bitter cause of industry ****...readin' HIS blog responses to his FEW fans seems that those speculations are true..."


Aight... i gotta wash clothes n get ready 4 this euro trip but 4 sum reason i couldnt resist respondin to this... Where do i begin?... I think this is one of those cases where the fans have "the customer is always right" mentality...Like we as the artist are supposed 2 b gracious and smiley and kind and happy go lucky, answering all questions(even tho they get asked a zilliion times over and over.(what equipment do u use?? How u do ya bass lines??),on myspace actually listening to sumbodys music when they ask to "check out my page bro"! Yeah...ok. I realize the internet has definitely brought the world closer but theres still an amount of respect that should be given and received. I think my FEW REAL fans can understand that because they have a certain level of sanity and respect and can leave certain comments and messages without sounding like an a** h0** them selves. But i realize that alot of fans are really the true sense of the word...FANATIC and sumtimes get out of hand...and sum/most people are just plain crazy so u cant really tell them nuffin. (c) yeezy. Sumtimes i can be a little "sharp" or sarcastic or whatever u wanna call it with fans because thats the energy they throw at me. So guess what? Thats the energy they get back. I appreciate everybody that checks out my music as well as the whole lowbudget but the customer/fan is Not always rite...that being said the artist isn't always rite either. So be it. Now... I pretty much picture myself as a "regular dude"(whatever that is)...most people that know me in real life think im an "ok guy" ...but sumtimes u gotta have a Sam Jackson on these man-fans when they get out of pocket. Straight up.

advice from a myspace "friend"


*** courtesy of ya boy myspace.com/flegz ***

Please.

Bring back the "Kev Brown mixtape".

Put the lights on your face. And Shine.

Sell beats to famous cats.

Bring Kaimbr's LP.

Don't use that formula everybody tried to imitate eversince you showed it in that video with the SP505 and the 2000XL. You almost originated that sound.

So you can have more than that. ex: "The Kev Brown mixtape".

This 24 tracks mixer is nice. But even Odisee himself told me to buy Pro Tools.

Now you probably hate me: put more spice in your texts. Girls, dreams, politics.

You got so much potential.

Kev Brown can hurt a lot more than he did.

Peace


...nice.

the ny show...

in my opinion was kinda wack...felt like the crowd wasnt feelin us. I didnt get 2 meet preemo. Sum type of "scuffle" jumped off between saigon and mobb deeps camp so the show ended around midnight. (sigh) A 4 hour drive 4 this?? Wow. Atleast we had fun hangin out at a bar close 2 the expensive azz hotel we were kickin in 2 stay at. By the way...white castle is sum of the nastiest burgers i have ever tasted in my life.

"too hip hop" to perform at the jazz cafe.(london)


So yeah...this is what i was told about us gettin a gig at the jazz cafe in london. Oddisee, correct me if Im wrong on this 1..."The Low budget crew is too hip hop to perform at the jazz cafe". Wooooooooooooooooooooooooow. Im not even quite sure what that means. Should we take that as an insult or a compliment. Hmmm. To all the london fans that have been hittin us up to do the jazz cafe, thats the response we got after a good couple weeks... I guess LITTLE BROTHER, PETE ROCK AND CL SMOOTH etc... are just hip hop enuff for the j.c...kev brown, oddisee and kenn starr would push the hip hop meter a little too high for a venue like that. I really dont understand. If there are any other venues in london that would like to host us hit us up on the myspace joint. Other than that, its out of our hands london fans.

p.s. If this is really true...F%!k the jazz cafe!!

LOW BUDGET 4 LIFE!

"wack dudes"...









I did this joint back in 98/99...haha.
Back then I had my yamaha 4 track, a best buy hand held mic and i was doin beats on the akai s20. This joint is a part of a whole project i did back then when i had my little "stint" on the open mic circuit. Kinda crazy when I think about it now...I started recordin this stuff b4 the crew(low budget) was even startin to form. I came up with that name for my "productions" bcuz my stuff was really, really low budget. 1 of my boys I was workin with at the time said I should keep usin that name so it just kinda stuck. I wish I still had that s20...(I sold it 2 sum dudes around the corner when I copped the mpc.) I still have all of the s20 floppy disks with beats on em in the closet... peep the young brown rhyme skills sun!(toast wit cha cup held high, Hawaiian punch!) haha...
