Atlanta based lyricists Boog Brown and renowned producer, Apollo Brown team up once again. The duo first collaborated on the enthralling mixtape The Grind Season Vol. 1, a tantalizing sample of what was to come from this dynamic team. On September 28, 2010 the wait will finally be over with the release of the duo’s first full-length album Brown Study, via Mello Music Group.
To usher in the release of Brown Study, Boog Brown presents “The Essence.” A solo track, not part of the album, “The Essence” was recently featured in BET’s documentary My Mic Sounds Nice. Previously released, the track is now getting a brand new makeover from highly acclaimed producer Oddisee. “The Essence” showcases Boog’s mesmeric flow, spitting rhymes with ease and precision, her lyrics smoothly layering the beat. While the original arrangement offers up a smooth, soulful groove and off-kilter beat, Oddisee’s revamped version keeps in step with the organic feel, but offers a smoother flowing base for Boog’s vocals with dusty drums, an array of accompanying percussion, and light, nearly staccato strings. Boog Brown & Apollo Brown’s Brown Study will be available September 28th via Mello Music Group. Hit the jump for the Illastrate-produced O.G as well as the Oddisee-laced remix.
