What up party people,
It's your local grocer bagging up the freshness. I'm here to tell you that NBR episode two is here waiting for you, nude on iTunes. Right now, come on try it, it's free, try it for free. Sorry, I just had a flashback of when I did Live-links commercials. Anyways, yes NBR episode two is here and features one of the best artists in hip hop history, Big Daddy Kane.
Neon Brown is proud to present his second episode of NBR (Neon Brown Radio) a monthly podcast, which features Brown playing music from his personal record collection, mocking NPR (NPR you’re not safe), and sharing amusing stories from prominent figures in the music industry. Last month featured Mr. Len, formally of Company Flow and member of The Dirty Disco Squares. This month features a story from one of hip-hop’s most notable originators, Big Daddy Kane.
Kane is an original member of the Juice Crew and has handfuls of classics under his belt. As well, he has helped write some of hip-hop’s favorite songs. In addition to his solo work, he has collaborated with some of the music industry's best, expanding over many genres including artists like, Quincy Jones and Patti Label. Kane helped mold the style of lyricism, the fashion and look of the culture, and hip-hop in its entirety. He is one of Neon Brown’s biggest influences.
The story Kane tells on NBR is extremely entertaining. We will not give away the plot, but we can assure you that it is something you and your co-workers will be bringing into conversation for many days while conversing around the water cooler.
In addition, Brown has a short dedication to the late David Bowie. Another major influence to Brown. Bowie spanned many generations and was never afraid to try new creative ventures. He was one of planet earth’s most creative souls and he will surely be missed.
In the beginning of the episode Brown attacks the racial issues of America. He is currently putting together a petition to stop the privatization of prisons in Colorado. It is his belief that racism is a business, and although putting a stop to private prisons won’t stop racism in its entirety, it will put a dent in the issue and help the American people pin point where these racial issues lay in our current system. The petition will be available to sign next month attached with episode three.
