Continuing on from his success with “Get Choze” and “Real Heavy” in 2010, both of which are singles from Labor Of Love, Mr Brady starts this year with another laid back and relaxed track “Catch” featuring fellow west coaster Aloe Blacc. Mr. Brady eschews rhyming on Labor Of Love, instead handling production duties for the entire album. “Catch” is another perfect example of Brady’s ability to produce sonically pleasing beats all the while having the ear to select and pair those beats with the MC best fit to bless it. While Aloe Blacc has garnered much acclaim recently for his soul singing with tracks like “I Need A Dollar,” which serves as the theme song for popular HBO series How To Make It In America, this track finds Aloe returning to his roots, rapping on Mr. Brady’s soulful, pad- and key-heavy production.

Native Cali rapper, producer, and founder of the group Deep Rooted, Mr. Brady is back with his latest solo album, Labor Of Love. The album is exactly what its title implies; fifteen energized tracks delivering Brady’s raw persona and featuring some of the best of what underground hip-hop has to offer. Part of what makes Labor of Love so special is Mr. Brady’s personal touch as the album’s main producer, “I usually do all my production myself,” says Brady. “There was no big studio involved in this project at all. I wanted to let people know that you can make it happen with whatever you have.” And make it happen Brady did, as Labor Of Love boasts appearances from Guilty Simpson, Blu, Diamond D, Exile, Aloe Blacc, Tajai of Souls Of Mischief, and more.

The album’s lead single “Real Heavy,” unleashed today to celebrate the release of his new album, Brady collaborates with prominent Detroit rapper Guilty Simpson and Johaz, who also happens to be a part of Brady’s Deep Rooted crew. Mr. Brady considers the song a “classic joint;” a well orchestrated track of chopped up lo-fi samples pieced together with a raw lyrical vibe and a hard hitting beat. “Real Heavy” is exemplary of Mr. Brady’s vision for the album: “I’ma keep it raw, soulful and give all of me with every track.”
