Going back to Kool Herc’s Bloc Parties, many things have remained the same when it comes to DJs. Their new scratches and breaks mixes create new breaker moves, inspire new graff designs and provide a foundation for new styles of spitting. But, when we reach the end of the weak ones, the thing that really makes the DJ the king pin is that he’s often the coolest cat in the joint.
Serving up prime slabs of heavyweight beats and tasty rhymes is West London MC Doc Brown. He initially burst on the scene with the remix of Gary Jules’ Mad World and released his debut LP The Document last year. This time he returns with 16 tracks which add to the Citizen Smith franchise.
The Doc’s back with another one, and he’s come a long way. Not content with Poisonous Poet fame, solo recognition with Citizen Smith Vol. 1 and The Document and BBC Radio and TV success, Mister Brown is planting Citizen Smith Vol.2 into the mix and paving the way for his brother and fellow PP fam Luc Skyz: next to put his stamp on the game.
