Mr. Brady in deep concentration
Mr. Brady continues his campaign to become the most prolific rapper ever in the history of the world. Left Overs Vol. 3 is the third installment in his "random collaboration tracks that don't have a home" series. You'll find some one-off work he's done with different artists including L.A. rappers Shawn Jackson and Coss, up-and-coming talent Chuuwee, Pharcyde's Bootie Brown, and more. What's curious is the large number of tracks with Moka Only of Swollen Members fame. It makes me wonder if a collaboration project between the two--together known as Mr. Mista--will actually come out or if it's just being scrapped altogether and released on this compilation.
Brady essentially has two types of beats: soulful joints and nose-curling, stank funk bangers. I prefer the latter so my top picks from this comp are "Pocketful", "Bang Ya Head", "Step", and "Rap Rap". I was hoping the songs from Brady and Kas One as The Fungus Brothers (rap name of the year?) would be stankier but they're more of the soul variety.
