Brown Bag AllStars producer/emcee Audible Doctor recently dropped I Think That..., an 11-track EP chock full of grimy beats and hardcore boombap rap. Clocking in at 33 minutes, I Think That... is Audible Doctor's debut vocal EP, and he's releasing it for free. The BBAS producer handles the majority of the beats on his debut EP, and brings along guests Chaundon, Chuuwee, Elzhi, Von Pea (of Tanya Morgan), Blacastan and Wise Intelligent (of Poor Righteous Teachers), fellow BBAS member Soul Khan, YC The Cynic, Silent Knight, KON, and Rasheed Chappell. Other production is handled by DJ Brace (who also handles cuts), marink, DJ Dyllemma, and Deheb. Early favourites include "(((((Resonate)))))" ft. Chuuwee, "Wings" (Audible Doctor Remix) ft. Elzhi, "The Uh...", and "Whole World". Stream and download I Think That... below.
The Brown Bag AllStars just dropped the visuals to "Say It Now", off their recent Brown Label Part 2 EP. On "Say It Now" (produced by J57), the Brown Bag AllStars are joined by Akie Bermiss on the chorus, who made his TCUS debut on Soul Khan's fantastic "Wellstone". Check out the visuals to "Say It Now" below.
The Brown Bag AllStars recently dropped the visuals to "406", a tribute to the now-closed Fat Beats Record store in New York. The BBAS remember Fat Beats dearly in part because it was the location where they all met each other and became a group (Koncept talks about this in our interview). The track features production by BBAS member Audible Doctor, who also lends his vocals to the chorus. Check out the visuals to "406 (Fat Beats Tribute)" below.
Koncept just dropped the visuals to "Hear, Hun", a track that originally came out in 2011. Featuring some great verses over excellent production by Tranzformer and solid cuts by DJ Brace, "Hear, Hun" is yet another impressive track by Koncept, which is something I've come to expect from the Brooklyn emcee. For more on Koncept, check out our recent interview with him as we talk about Awaken, how he got into hip-hop, and the Brown Bag AllStars crew. Check out the visuals and download "Hear, Hun" below.

[Interview] Koncept talks about his debut album “Awaken”, how he got into hip-hop, and all things Brown Bag
Interview by: Martin Bauman You may have heard of the Brown Bag AllStars before, but chances are you haven't gotten to know the individual members of the group. Queens/Brooklyn emcee Koncept has been putting in solid work as 1/7 of the Brown Bag AllStars crew, and with the release of his debut solo album Awaken earlier this year, he makes a strong case as to why we should know him for more than just his group affiliation. I caught up with Koncept while he was on tour in Dallas along with Tanya Morgan (Von Pea & Donwill), Bodega Brovas, and Playdough, as part of the American Graffiti tour. We talked about his debut album, how he got into hip-hop, his favourite albums of all-time, and the Brown Bag AllStars crew, among other things. Hit the skip to check out the full interview.
