Kev Brown & Hassaan Mackey know how to make some good hip hop. So there is bound to something remarkable on the way when the two release their album, That Grit, on November 4th. There are not a lot of albums that I am checking for but this one is certainly on the radar. Kev Brown laces a perfect beat with the pluck of a harp and a cascade of strings and Mackey just flows his ass of at a break neck pace. Really impressive on all levels.

I am not up on Kaimbr. I saw him on the Rawkus 50 a few years ago but none of his music ever made it into my Ipod. Not because I didn’t like him as an artist, but I just have to claim ignorance on this one. Well, for my ears, the wait is finally over. The Alexander Green Project features the aforementioned Kaimbr flowing over Kev Brown production. That same production is based upon Al Green’s music. The project is very harmonious and proves to be a great listen by any standard of the imagination.
