"Brewsky "The Brewery" Album Review"

Hip-Hop Kings Reviews – Brewsky : The Brewery

Host of the very popular “The Open Mic” show, radio personality Brewsky has released his debut album “The Brewery”. The highly popular Californian figurehead is no stranger to the mic, as he recorded his first song at the age of 17. “When I was about 17 years old I wrote my first song called "Pearl Necklace", that was dope, because all my friends knew the words to it.” Since then Brewsky has been ever-present in the Hip-Hop world, interviewing rappers from around the nation. The continued success lead to Brewsky setting up “In Ovation Records”, and as the C.E.O, “The Brewery” is the first release.

The track listing itself is impressive, and also exciting to any potential fans. Brewsky himself features on all tracks, along with various guest appearances who lend their vocals to the album. Brewsky is also incredibly proud of being the executive producer of the album and his skills are quite evident when listening to the record. To top things off, the mastering comes from a familiar name in Mike Lazer, who mastered the “Crazy” hit-single by Gnarles Barkley. With this information alone, “The Brewery” sounds to be a great album.

Musically it’s creative, and very representative of the West Coast. The vibe set throughout the album will appeal to the old school fans, and tracks such as “Watch Your Enemies” ft. Miireya Valenzuela not only quotes the legend that is Tupac Shakur, but reminisces of the early 90’s era where the prolific rapper was at his peak. “Twilight Zone” shows the second side of Brewsky, as it features a very dark and pessimistic story. The death march-style beats accompanies the lyrics perfectly, and “Twilight Zone” proves to be a great example of Brewsky’s ability to create a track.
& nbsp;
Brewsky is no stranger to filling the dance floors and making you dance. Whether it’s on the “Open Mic Show” or through the mic, Brewsky has the knack for creating good club music. This statement is backed up by “Limelight” which features “4 To the S”. You can fully expect this single to be rotated in gardens and parties throughout the summer of 2008. The party continues, with “Quitate La Ropa” (take your clothes off). The dance hall-vibe track is definitely proving to be a fan favourite on the album.

An impressive album considering this is Brewsky’s debut release. From “Pearl Necklace” to “Just Cuz”, the sound is crisp, well produced, and Brewsky holds his own as a lyricist. I think fans of the West-Coast should definitely be tempted into buying this, not only to support an upcoming figurehead, but because the record is a great example of diversity, and a mixture of seriousness and fun.

HHK Rating – 3.5/5 Crowns

Bio

Born in Los Angeles Ca. from a Cuban mother and a Mexican father comes a breath of fresh air into the rap and hip hop scene: Brewsky. Whether composing Producing or Performing, Brewsky is one of the best kept secrets in rap music today.

My love for music began in elementary school. Bryson Elementary School in South Gate, CA where I joined the music class and attempted to learn how to use the recorder. Later on through elementary school I joined the choir where I attempted to sing. I remeber the teacher telling me he loved my enthusiam and liked the fact I was not afraid to sing at the top of my lungs.

I don't think he realized that with me coming from a Cuban background it was just naturally in my blood.

I can remember when I was very young my parents bought me the "Thriller" album on vinyl. As I got older I really started to recognize and appreciate a lot of the rap music and westcoast pioneers, such as N.W.A. and Too Short. When I got to high school, I started to really develop a skill for freestyling. We would walk home from school and I would rap about the cars on the street, the girls passing by or anything else that came across my path. I even started to bust little raps on my voicemail to show off my skills to all my friends and of course the ladies. Eventually I started raping on other peoples voicemail. That got me into writing. I took a creative writing class which I really enjoyed and that helped me with my craft.

When I was about 17 years old I wrote my first song called "Pearl Necklace", that was dope, because all my friends knew the words to it.

After high school I got into the L.A party scene and started to throw house parties. We would do live shows at the backyard boogie. We would also battle crews and always freestyle live on the mic. Back in those days you really had to be able to freestyle to earn cred and respect amongst other MCs.

A few years passed and i had countless amounts of written raps, but no where to record them etc. I enrolled into college (LBCC) and developed a new love for music in radio. I started to do a live on air show called "Open Mic" where i would play artist who were trying to get play,trying to get heard, the up and comers. My radio show really got me motivated to start recording music, seeing that there was so many artist doing what i was doing.

The Open Mic show also opened lots of doors for me as it grew tremendously popular. It also introduced me to lots of great people who I had the pleasure of working with. It also got me a deal with SI TV. Which was a very big blessing.

So now this leads us to the present, After realizing you can't depend on no one in this industry and even finding out your own friends will mislead you, I decided to build my own studio. Also started up my own Music imprint; an indie record label built by the people for the people. Enter "IN Ovation Records" which i am proud to say I am CEO of. Our first major release will be "The Brewery" which is my first album which I Executive Produced.

Life has a funny way of throwing obstacles in your way, trials ,tribulations. we all gotta face them. How you deal with and overcome them is what makes you, what builds your character. All the things that have happened in the past, good or bad, have brought me to this moment, This exact point in time. So this is the begining. The begining of a new era, the begining of Brewsky, The Brewey , In Ovation Records. Hope you enjoy the ride. Collectively, these songs tell my story; where I come from with the Cuban influence, where I am today as a West Coast artist, and where I have my goals set on going next.
