On his debut DJBooth feature, October 2012’s Letter to God, Golden State emcee/producer Sean Brown prayed for the strength to stay away from the strip club and the power to spread positivity through his rhymes. While newly-released EP cut Morning Sun isn’t explicitly addressed to the Man Upstairs, it follows a similar blueprint, dealing with the artist’s personal and professional struggles as well as his ambitions in the game. Brown’s own boardwork, featuring a sample from Laura Mvula’s Sing to the Moon and an unexpectedly pretty, string-laced bridge, backs him as he delivers his lightly-Autotuned bars. Has this contemplative jam left you hungry for more? Then keep your browsers locked for more fresh song releases leading up to the September 3, arrival of Sean Brown’s latest street album, Whole Foods 2.
