Brenton Brown : The definition of rap’s isotope. Brenton Brown, Formerly Boogs Milli, came from the suburbs after a life in Brooklyn, moved to Miami and is now doing his thing at the University of Florida. Don’t count him out and don’t box him in, because he’s been steadily spreading his music all over Florida and Atlanta’s college campuses. Getting seriously involved in music at the age of 17, Brown’s first performance was at his college’s major pep rally, Gator Growl. Here he said, the dream became more reality. “the lights came on, and I felt ready, it just felt natural,” Brown said. Since his start, he’s opened for such artists as David Banner, Bone Thugs, Wale, J. Cole, B.O. B, Kid Cudi, Whole Wheat Bread and Method Man and Redman, and even done a small performance with newbie Asher Roth. Noted for his second mixtape, “The Pregame” Brown gave supporters a look inside college life his way, the ups and downs, the party life and the school aspect. On a collaboration with
Gainesville and internet-known producer, Dj Codeman, Brown joined forces with other Gainesville talent to create the “Beat Drop Squad” mixtape which made a nice splash in the hip-hop blips at 17,000 downloads. Well into his senior year of college, he is currently working on his next mixtape “The Wednesday Buzz“ and his album, “The Brenton Brown Affair” which he says will showcase a “graduation” of sorts into his lyrics style and image. “I’m just ready to be heard, so keep your ears open,” Brown said.
The legend of Robby Hunter has been told many times, but few accounts have captured it accurately. They say he was born in a guitar case, underneath the dirty street lights of Miami’s night arena. But that’s not true. For the past 5 years he has been serenading the young and reckless student body with passion and fervor unlike any man that had existed, past or present.
His voice, can beckon bar-combing cougars, and birth political bar fights – at the same time. His anatomy, has been christened “perfect” by some scientists, others use the term “above average.” With his newly acquired band he has been vigilantly playing the city’s local watering holes: Transit Lounge, Bougainvilleas, Barracudas … to name a few. Breaking hearts and taking names, there seems to be no end to the Tempest that he has begun. Melodies that dig deep into the gut where few dare to go. Victims of his music have no choice but to dance furiously and passionately. Be wary for his enchanting guitar and soul-tickling roar … you may have stumbled upon his bar.
