Brandon Brains / Bio

I've been involved in the hip hop scene since February 2011 after a life changing event left me looking for a means of escape. I know I don't fit any particular "hip hop mold," but to be honest, I like it that way. In my few years on the scene, I have accomplished more than some artists who've been at it for years. I recorded my first ep, Loves Company, and released it in May '11. I lived in Virginia Beach at the time and performed multiple local shows to support that release, but also a couple of shows in NYC thanks to the shady ass China bus.
In August '11, I moved to Nashville, TN to be closer to family. In my new home, I worked to make a name for myself in the local scene as well as online and in April '12, I released my first full length Ugly & Impatient,which featured several friends I had made along the way. I went on my first tour in June '11 to support this project w/ my good friend and fellow emcee, B.Done and my good friend Ian who filled in as DJ Hulk Hands (long story I hope to share in a autobiography some day).
After tour I took some time to compile new material and release my long over-due obligatory mixtape,The End Is Weird in December '12, which featured almost every friend I've made in the underground hip hop scene along the way. Since then, I've performed locally and built a growing fan base.
