Lock Down and Thump Records have joined forces to bring you the new generation of hip-hop from La Raza. Back2Brown is YC Deniro, AG The Mack, Yung Ant, and Alyssa Alves. The foursome came together at the suggestion of JuneBug Slim, who happens to be YC Deniro’s father. The idea was to bring back classic Latin hip hop and mix it with today’s new vibe to create the sound of Back2Brown. The Sacramento group all had deep ties to the underground hip hop world, citing artists like Lighter Shade of Brown, NB Ridaz, and Kid Frost as some of their biggest inspirations.
Check out the self titled album featuring the single “Something About You” — out now! “Something About You” opens with Alyssa’s angelic vocals hitting the hook as YC Deniro, AG The Mack, and Yung Ant take turns spilling introspective bars about their different relationships. The guitar driven production is complimented by the funky bass and West Coast synths, clearly bringing back that classic underground sound.
