Video: Brown Bag AllStars, “406 (Fat Beats Tribute)” (Prod. By The Audible Doctor)
This video is just another excellent example of what I’ve come to expect from the Brown Bag AllStars. They always great production and deep lyrics that go beyond concepts covered in mainstream rap music – soulful, real life Hip-Hop.
For those of you who were oblivious, all of the cats from Brown Bag used to work at Fat Beats Records in New York, and this song is a dedication to the place that they once called home. From the memories of in-store performances, to the nervousness of going through their job interviews, this song covers it all. The Audible Doctor built a beat that – even if it stood alone – evokes emotion and storytelling. (Side Note: For all of my people in the Mid West, The Audible Doctor is actually originally from Madison, WI. So, I’d like to give him a shout.)
The beginning lines of Koncept’s verse do a great job of summing up the entire crew’s feelings:
“You ever have to say goodbye to your dearest friend/remembering the day he died, wishing he was here again”
