In the world of hip-hop, Atlanta-based Boog Brown spreads her "Dope Girl Magic" like her life depends on it and returns us to the roots of a genre that has literally changed the world. Currently based in Atlanta, Detroit native Brown is not only an emcee, poet and publisher; but she describes herself as a "lover, fighter and artist." This is reflected in her personal style, lyrical approach and unique perspective. Boog Brown is currently signed to Mello Music Group (home to Oddisee, Apollo Brown, Gensu Dean and more).

Today, Boog Brown teams up with director W. Feagins, Jr of High Impact Multimedia to bring us the video for DMV producer Nick Tha 1Da's remix of "Shine." Shot in a stark black room, the video leaves all the bells and whistles to the wayside and simply lets Boog spit. The song appears on Boog's Brown Study Remixes and will also appear on Nick Tha 1Da's upcoming album Give Tha Drumma None. Boog's lyricism on Shine strikes a balance between rugged and emotive with a lyricism that bends her words into a concise rhyme pattern that nimbly graces Nick's soulful and driven remix.

MP3: 4th Pyramid - "Simmy Auto"


MP3: 4th Pyramid - "Simmy Auto"

Earlier this month, 4th Pyramid released his new album, The Pyramid Scheme, his first since signing his label, Silk Ivory, to a joint venture with Lyrics to Go/Universal Music. Along with the album release, Pyramid also unleashed his latest video for "Can't Stop," an official single from The Pyramid Scheme. And now, as a thank you to fans that have supported the album, Pyramid is releasing a bonus song, one that doesn't show up on the original album, for free.

The song, "Simmy Auto," is produced by Simahlak, whose production should be described as nothing less than full-body. The hard-hitting, bass-heavy track is driven forward by a gritty guitar line and sets the tone for 4th Pyramid, who matches the beat step-for-step with a bouncy flow and swift wordplay. "At the time, I had taken a little break from recording in the studio so I wanted to really show that I could still deliver some super lyrical shit," explains Pyramid. "Even the title of the song is a play on words, switching the usual Semi-Auto to incorporate Simahlak's nickname, 'Simmy.'"

4th Pyramid has worked with Simahlak on several other tracks and projects, and has developed a respect for the man's work ethic. "I remember having to do an insane amount of takes before we settled on this version," recalls Pyramid. "When you work with a guy like Simahlak, it's like being in the dojo; he holds you to the highest of standards."
