Biography

Brimstone127's unique rhythmic explosion and style hails out of Miami and into the hip hop scene around the country. Already featured at the 2004 Florida Grammy Showcase, the group can be seen performing live every Tuesday at 1pm EST on www.krib.tv.

Brim's debut album Metamorphoses, set college charts on fire. The album listed as one of the top 10 independent releases by Street Magazine in 2003. Miami New Times also gave it The Editors Choice Award in 2004. Based on the incredible depth of sound and diverse flowing tones of Metamorphoses, the next album "Elevator Music" will no doubt continue to change perrceptions.

Individually the group’s creative talents have formed professional relationships with artists such as Nelly Furtado, Matisyahu, KRS-1, Jacki-O and director John Singleton.

Collectively, the group has collaborated with the nationally recognized group Black Sheep, Dug Infinite and with Miami’s sensation The Spam AllStars.

In the meantime, Brimstone127’s front man, Seth Schere, spans the distance between music and everyday life through a foundation he created known as “Bridging The Gap.” The performer motivates today’s youth about hip-hop culture by speaking at high schools, colleges, and inner city programs. Alongside Mista Long (Black Sheep) and Speedy Legs (Hip Hop Elements), they host events that unite pioneers of hip hop culture with up and coming acts.

Schere began as a be a b-boy and then evolved into a graffiti artist and finally an emcee. Schere helped to introduce some of the most popular deejays like Craze and Epps into Miami’s club scene. As an engineer and producer, he has worked with artists that include Nelly Furtado, KRS-1, Jungle Brothers, Black Sheep and The Spam AllStars.

Brimstone127’s lady love, Mariposah, lends her sultry voice to entrance listeners while brimstone keeps you hooked with his depth-defining lyrics. True, Mariposah sings, dances, and struts her stuff on stage, but she also designs signature jewelry pieces that are sold internationally and at Urban Outfitters.

All the original beats are driven by Jay Borland, better known as Jase. His signature sounds are featured in radio commercials, ring tones, and TV shows. Jase combines his skills of beatboxing and turntablism that’ll leave you asking, “is he doing that, or is it a machine?”

Lyrics

Fresh is the Word

Written By: Seth Schere

Fresh is the Word (S. Schere)

Fresh is the word, is the word, is the word its got groove its got meaning
Fresh is the time is the place is the motion and fresh is

Fresh is the words I speak the words I seek to teach the youth the truth because
They constantly needing reinforcement adolescents pass 3rd Bass as products of the environment
Where my parents at? What about the brat pack that packs gats as part of the format
All city, I’m touring that. And if you reject my words I’ll dust my feet at your door mat
Kick your shoes off loosen up your muscles, all you doggy Mcees need to wear a muzzle
Cuz your barking up the wrong tree, check my vocal vocabulary without profanity
We gotta do what we can to get our point across, but some people don’t think about the lives lost
And the impact we have on our children, this is entertainment, but who we entertaining?

Fresh is the word, is the word, is the word its got groove its got meaning
Fresh is the time is the place is the motion and fresh is the way we are feeling

Lets set this off with a coin toss heads or tails, heads I win, tails ya fails
You aint ahead if you plan to fail I wont do crime so I don’t need bail
And I’ll sail around the seas like the Chinese pre-Columbus discoveries
No they making dungarees in factories, for just pennies a day
Our forefathers would cry at the things we pay for
Like a visit to the se shore, I had to let my rhyme take a little detour
I pray for more consciousness in Hip Hop and I’ma keep on flowing till the Everglades will dry up
And then they’ll say why the - is the environment so dried up well people I aint buying it
You better wizen up and plan for change and think beyond rap and platinum frames we’re Fresh

Fresh is the word, is the word, is the word its got groove its got meaning
Fresh is the time is the place is the motion and fresh is the way we are feeling

The music biz is like hell sometimes if you don’t understand a contract then why get signed?
Do you know what the word bind means? You’re either bound to the earth or spiritual things
That means stuck, but be careful what you’re stuck to, remember that man with the helmet and the crazy glue?
Now would that be you or not be? Your like a sloppy jalopy copy sputting spitting out smut
I stay nice precise and slice just like a surgeons cut, so what do you think your contribution is worth
In the blink of an eye they can snatch your purse snatch everything that your worth
Are you prepared to leave this earth
If not you got a lot of straightening up to do My name is Brimstone and I challenge you to be fresh

Fresh is the word, is the word, is the word its got groove its got meaning
Fresh is the time is the place is the motion and fresh is

Part of Me, Part of You

Written By: Seth Schere

Chorus
Part of Me, Part of You, Para Ti, Para Tu, Whatcha Gonna Do?
HipHop is in the place to be throw your hands in the air if you’re feeling free
Cuz it’s a Part of Me, Part of You, Para Ti, Para Tu, Whatcha Gonna Do?
Throw your hands up, throw your hands up, throw your hands up!

Yo, Im stuck in the maze like a lab rat, searching for cheese
My energies allow me to freeze the negativities that seize my mind
Like record companies that won’t wanna sign a brother that can truly rap
In fact, I’ll let you be the judge of that
Determined to cross the country like an Amtrak railroad track’
Guaranteed to be lovely if Spam’s a part of that, a martyr to tracks
And once I barter negotiations, see there’s no turning back

chorus

Algorhytms and neurons use my brain as a dance space
Make my spine tingle and I can’t even stand straight
At last fate, congratulates the late breaks and samples provided
so the crowd gets excited
If you haven’t been invited just mention my self
Not offending or pretending to be anyone else that I can not be
See, if you was me, then, I’d probably ask myself to be more like me you following?

chorus

When I perform it’s a storm of lyrical waveform
And where I stay is the place that even Winter’s stay warm
I’ve seen nuff splinters get mentors and grow into trees
I got a small axe to chop down mcees and industries
Rooted for centuries of hard work and destinies
My personal legacy the ability of my delivery
Fertile and futile I’m like graffiti in the city
While you’re just a small tag I’m masterpieces painted pretty

Chorus

They save the best for last that’s why I've taken so long
I’m making a strong decision while most be making the wrong
Hustling songs for loots and boots with troops on bicycles
I heard around the way you like to suck on popsicles
My heart trickles, your art is fickle when I venue
You’re just a dummy, I’m the ventriloquist that tells you
When and wear and who and how you need to behave
You’re either a slave or a freeman, hip hop is part of me and

Chorus

Do U Believe in Love

Written By: Seth Schere

Do you believe in Love?
The radical emphatical, cat cool like calico
Get loose like sandals from beaches at Malibu
Tally’s the capital state I reside in
In your slipping at home , I slide in
Wanna ride in my car and wave hi
To all the pretty girls that walk on by like Sybil
On South Beach check the riddle, everything is not as it seems so giggle
Scream – chiching – is the sound of diamond rings and things that make you go bling
I’m living the life of a human being
The king gave me courage to fulfill my dream
And I’ve seen rap go through crazy change
Been down with hip hop since back in the days

Do you believe in Love?
To stay original and bring home the bread
Is a balancing act that sometimes goes unsaid
But I’m well fed and bred well, check what I said
Wells are for wishing or fetching pails
The storyteller tells a story of glory or terror
The youth need a truth faucet like Farrah
Cupbearer or king, pawn or queen, ping ponging rivalries
Pro-longing emcees from handshakes for man sakes if the dam breaks
Its due to pressure build up
What can we do to avoid the big blow up
Let kids be kids and adults be grown-ups
Sho Nuff the center of a donut is no cut, I gotta bring home the pastries and the cold cuts
Do you believe in Love?

What People do for Money
I gotta get paid, lamp In the shade
everything I wear needs to be tailor made
my disc oughta get played but cds only get played when peons get paid
I’ve got to get paid, lamp here in the shade
These jams must get played, love must be the way

Do you believe in Love?
Tempting it to run off in showbiz,
stealing our dreams And robbing our kids
of child hood from wild hoods to Hollywood
I pile goods of the spirit plant seeds and cure disease now
Who wants to come near it? Feel the love soak yourself up in it
If we was drugs we smoked up in it
We toked out with cuz we bugged out with it
Music is more than just 6 figure digits
It use to be communication praise ands worship
We bring it back to that where it is simple and worth it
To buy a whole album or just download it
Explode it, promote it to your fans and friends
The only thing real in the end is
Do you believe in Love?

What People do for Money
I gotta get paid, lamp In the shade
everything I wear needs to be tailor made
my disc oughta get played but cds only get played when peons get paid
I’ve got to get paid, lamp here in the shade
These jams must get played, love must be the way
