Boog Brown – Shine (prod. by Apollo Brown)

by Eric on October 6, 2010

“It’s champagne for the real ones, pain for the shams”

Shine, the new single off Boog Brown’s debut album, Brown Study, from Mello Music Group, strikes a perfect balance between rugged and emotive. Detroit’s Apollo Brown uses stadium claps to drive the melancholy thunder of Shine’s production. Meanwhile, Atlanta emcee Boog Brown the fakes who block and doubt those of us on a personal mission, but offers them understanding: “I’m sure if they knew better they’d do better”.

The tracks optimism bellows out through the chorus as Boog declares “To be a star, you can’t be afraid of the dark, that’s when you shine, know your roll, play your part”. With stolid lyricism bends her words into concise rhyme patterns that nimbly grace Apollo’s grimy boom bap soul.

The track begs to be performed live with it’s moderate tempo, poignant and inspiring lyrics, and infectious claps and drum patterns. In the end, Shine is a thorough tribute to Hiphop’s essence of self-empowerment and crew love: “All the while I bless up my fam, my people understand.” Hit the jump for audio to “Shine”…

This is my #1 album so far this year. BUT, when The Left drops “Gas Mask”, it’s all over for any other albums except that one to be numero uno. MMG is doing the damn thing!!!
