Kev Brown – Fill In The Blank
- US - Original
- Hip Hop / Rap
Before any of the excitement could die down, Kev Brown hasn't let off the gas. In less than 2 months after his long awaited and critically acclaimed Homework album, the latest release entitled Fill in the Blank is nothing short of the perfect surprise for the Hip Hop world. In the famous words of Kev, this is just "Another Classic Joint!". Classics are synonymous with his legacy and if you release 2 classic albums back to back in under 90 days, not only is your work ethic setting you apart from your contemporaries, but the talent and quality of your product is the real standout. In the vein of Homework, Fill in the Blank continues the same formula of pairing sporadic beats and raps in an unorthodox, yet seamless presentation. The two projects may share similarities, but as an artist, Kev Brown is all about evolution. The mixing is tighter, the beats are bolder and his rapping is more aggressive.
Some may observe that this album is more polished than the previous, but "the grit" he is known for is still prominently audible. As a vocalist, Kev has found a great balance of being smooth, concise, unapologetic and passionate with his honesty, love for the craft and flashes of dry humor. Making a guest appearance as the in house DJ, Damu the Fudgemunk exclusively handles all of the scratching. The album may be called Fill in the Blank, but the audience will state the obvious.
At 20 tracks, there's no mystery in Kev Brown's creativity or his skills as producer/rapper as he blends vocal tracks with instrumental pieces and even throws in a few complimentary interludes. This is what the fans want. Collecting cosigns from Large Professor, Diamond D and even Questlove from the legendary Roots (Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon) was seen on social media praising Kev's recent output. Dr. Dre's Pharmacy show on Beats Radio recently included some new Kev joints in their popular playlists / programs too.
Also notable is the fact that Brown is just returning home from a European tour in which he used the tour dates to announce the surprise release of Fill in the Blank. Responding to a frenzy of hype, Redefinition Records proudly designed and packaged the new album on black vinyl printed with full color artwork. The cover art features images of the artist in his hometown neighborhood of Palmer Park made famous by boxer Sugar Ray Leonard and located in Landover, Maryland. While listeners have been instructed to Fill in the Blank, Kev's agenda is to fill up the year with continuous projects.
