Canberra based hip hop artist BRB hits hard with relevant and spontaneous freestyles and inspirational lyrics delivered with a distinctively smooth flow.
The BRB 3B is a collaborative hip hop collective of artistic shades, light and dark and many colours in between.
The project is a journey, from bumping along to fresh beats, to questions on the deeper things of life to straight battle rapping and lyrical prowess.
'Shook', featuring the renowned KJ-52, is upbeat and flamboyant, full of life and colour. It begins as a track of intrigue and mystery that ends with the question 'what leaves you shook?' KJ-52 rides the beat with his unique twang with verses jammed full of punch lines. BRB brings smooth delivery and both artists point to a hope that goes beyond the moments that leave you shaken. Fresh cuts and elements from the remix of 'Shook Ones Part II' by Mobb Deep give the track a deep twist.
'Devil's Playground', featuring Cas Metah of the Scribbling Idiots, is a pensive thriller, dark and foreboding that ushers a word of warning. This is a pensive and contemplative track reminiscing on the darker side of life. Bad choices, haunting memories, temptation and trickery: a timely warning that the devil doesn't enter the cyph unless he tries to take your life. Cas Metah means business, as he ushers a call to persevere and press on regardless of what the devil throws your way. BRB heralds a warning and battle for truth with lyrics woven with wisdom, teaching warfare to corner any emcee.
'I Am Thunder, I Am War' is a battle cry forged with the talented Izzy and is a small taste of the many hours Izzy and BRB have spent freestyling and in cyphers together. This is a track of lyrical prowess. Izzy and BRB flaunt minds full of clever and crafty lyrics in quick witted fashion while rocking the beat on the top of the track. A playful boom-bap song with a catchy hook. The boys have thrown down the gauntlet.
