alpha.live “Smokin'” x Six Shot EP ft. J. Brookinz
Every city has that one lyricist that everyone has to admit is a beast on the mic; in Indianapolis that artist is alpha.live. Gentleman Alphonse cut his teeth in freestyle circles in Indianapolis long before every dropping his now infamous FIXTape and was named one of Indy’s top freestyle emcees by Nuvo in 2009. Since then, alpha has dropped the well received Steal From The Rich w/ Dope Couture’s CMART, The Love Story, and Soul Cinema with producer Soul Cinematik. Currently alpha.live is working with Spitten Writtens to craft video adaptations of each track on Six Shot and Soul Cinematik to finish their next project Soul Cinema 1.5!
During the spring and summer of 2010, J. Brookinz reasserted why he is hands down the Highest Man Alive. 4/20/2010 found the producer (and sometimes rapper) releasing his most well received project to date. The Gateway Drug: THC was Mr. Brookinz’s love letter to the light of his life–marijuana. As a testament to how intertwined cannabis and hip-hop have become in American culture, the project was featured on blogs such as Ruby Hornet, Kick Kick Snare, Mostly Junk Food, Noise Porn, Check The Rhymes, and Tune Devil. Watch for J. Brookinz to follow up The Gateway Drug’s success with a sequel for this year’s holiday! For more about them, check em out here.
