When most 9-to-5ers are brushing their teeth before resting for the next workday, Brandon Crowel is just punching in.

Review: LMNO "Overtime" by Steady Rock

Big ups to the good people at Steady Rock who reviewed the latest LMNO LP Overtime. If you haven't copped it yet, it's free!

Over the past few years, LMNO has really taking hip hop's "hustle harder" mantra to a awe inspiring level, releasing volumes of quality music for fans to enjoy. He worked with some of the scene best and brightest names in front of and behind the mic, but I think this collaboration with producer LD is definitely one of his best projects so far. These two have a great musical chemistry, one that is arguably on-par with some of hip-hop's best emcee-producer combinations. Hopefully these two will continue to create amazing music together and keep "pushing that work" that the fans enjoy.

Album Review: LMNO "Overtime" by Scratched Vinyl

Thanks to Scratched Vinyl for reviewing LMNO's latest (and free) LP OVERTIME.

After the ambitious project of releasing ten albums in 2010, it would be completely understandable if LMNO took 2011 off. The Long Beach emcee wasn’t content to rest on his laurels, though, and dropped Overtime right at the end of December of 2011. Produced entirely by LD, they team up to bring us yet another collection of solid hip hop in the Visionaries member‘s catalog.
