I know the homey Praverb was on the low, not picking up a pad or a pen to commit life to the page, but he had resurfaced with some ish on deck. Had no idea that this would turn into The Brainstormers, aka his collective alongside Cayoz, A.L. Laureate, DJ Grazzhoppa and O*Zee. This EP finds these cats really moving towards a similar goal, becoming a proper “group” as opposed to a bunch of niggas rapping together. Also had no idea they roped in heavy hitters like Crooked I, Skyzoo and Hell Razah to contribute, as well as beats from talented cats like Teddy Roxpin. Just a great introduction to a piece of the game that’s needed: unity. If you aren’t feeling the intro, “By All Means”, I don’t know what you’re about. Shouts to Dub MD for the heads up on this – saw a few alternate covers with Kevin Nottingham on them, but I’m not sure how they are affiliated. No bother, shit’s dope on it’s own!
