Review by Steve 'Flash' Juon

Artist: Brown Bag AllStars
Title: Brooklyn Queens Expressway
Label: Brown Bag AllStars

Marink on the beat. Koncept and J57 on rhymes. DeeJay Element scratching on the 1's and 2's. Add it all up and you've got the Brown Bag AllStars, a "Don't Give a Flying Fuck" collective who have been giving away fat tracks for free for the last month - and I just caught the late pass. Better late than never though as "Brooklyn Queens Expressway" is an adrenaline fueled and humor laced romp down a crowded highway, weaving around Keith Murray samples threatening to "drink ya style down straight with no chaser." This is what would happen if DJ Premier, The Beanuts and Marco Polo all got fucked up one night and started remixing each other's shit. Koncept may rep the best out of the BBAS posse: "He's gainin' in his game, it's a shame when you lose it/When bringing up my name, I am great, don't confuse it!" My review probably won't do the banging pianos and flippant flutes justice, so I encourage you to go to the Brown Bag AllStars website yourself to check out the dopeness.
