Fresh: Kenny Keys – Neon Brown Soul Vol. 2 | Brothers Perspective Magazine Review

Kenny Keys – Neon Brown Soul Vol. 2 | Brothers Perspective Magazine Review


“Dayum”, I must say Neon Brown Sound vol.​ 2 is the feel good record of the year, is the first thing that comes to mind after hitting play on the 13 track melodic episodes of the timeless Kenny Keys. “Back Pack 101” sounds like Chicago either walking through Hyde Park or traveling to the north side on the Redline. I came back, got off on 87th and walked to Cottage Grove to get some popcorn kind of vibe saw the mural done by Rahmaan Statik sort of experience. All I can say is this album is jamming with a mixture of music for golden era Tribe marauders or the modern day YouTube induced Joey Bad A$$ listeners. Somebody call? Joey Bad A$$ or Clear Soul Forces and hook these kids up with this man’s production. Kenny Keys is what one would call superb when it comes to production. Listen to “D.M.”  a few thousand times and take notes because this brother is an actual musician in the same mature mold of Adrian Young with more Robert Glasper  in his blood related to  a Quest Love mixed with Platinum Pied Pipers etc .. My point is this guy is superior and this album “Neon Brown Sound Volume.​ 2” is actually that high-quality in its shortened “Dilla Dounut” sounding splendor. “Everything Must Change” helps to conclude this joint and you should put it on repeat while you cleaning up your Momma’s abode on some of these chilly days. Get warm and go out and purchase “Neon Brown Sound vol​.​2”.

9 out of 10

Chicago Is Not Just Violent Music: Tragedy into Art?

Chicago Is Not Just Violent Music: Tragedy into Art

Article by Brothers Perspective Magazine –

What a disgrace how can a people sit back and allow the stupidity in music to fester. Violence in art is totally a waste of a people’s creative ability. What is a Chief Keef and how can this non-sense be perpetrated through the African American Community on a wide scale, when will the people stand up and make the decision to shut down this watered down bubble gum fake gangster rap music. What swindler allows for them to run around and disregard human life just to make money?

Look at the city of Chicago in this day in time; it’s a war zone where children are destroying each other on a wide scale. The greater political leaders in the city are not doing anything to curve the violence based on inner city reports from actual residents. One brother by the name of Dean who lives in Englewood on Chicago’s South Side is quoted saying “this junk has been going on for most of his adult life and I’m 56” Imagine that. He went on to say “these kids are killing each other over poverty and no one wants to deal with the real stuff happening out here on these streets”! We’ve gotten reports like this from most of the West Side and South Side city blocks in Chicago and most of the communities seem to be under some type of aggressive take over by violent gangs in the city.

The total picture of rap music in the city is not totally violent we’ve heard of artist for years from Chicago who have submitted reviews and written articles that seem to have a more positive edge but don’t get the same type of publicity as the racist wealthy media in the city refuses to promote. Chief Keef is just a poison in a city that’s largely populated by African Americans. Other recording artist who may have done twice the work over more years and less YouTube coverage are not getting the same buzz because the “powers that be” are not looking to make sure that constructive musicians are not rewarded the same advantages.

We hope after creating this article designed for online blogs will eventually help to promote more positive, creative and diverse music coming from Chicago like Lupe Fiasco, Common, Rashid Hadee, Capital D, Thaione Davis, Radius, Juice, Mc Adad, Rita J, Kenny Keys, Serengeti, Visual, Amina & Chris Coolout, Longshot, Infinito 2017, Ang 13, Rhymefest, Gilead 7, Riot One, Akbar, All Chi Rock Nation, Ill State, Pugz Atoms, Opus, Rubber Room, Mass Hysteria, Primemeridian , Psalm One, Dee Jackson, Vyle, Qwel, Typical Cats and so many more …

The point to make this article and to present this perspective is to share the views of so many of the cities misrepresented people. Please take the time to learn more about some of the more creative Music Artist in the City of Chicago so we can change the views of the emergent public. No more gun toting music and more thoughtful substance.
