Armstead Brown - Fieldwork

J. Armstead Brown's debut album, Fieldwork, from 2007. Brown handles the majority of the production and spits on one track, it features many of Pittsburgh's finest MC's as well as some dope New York veterans (Subcon, The Dugout). Brown, along with host/MC Thelonious Stretch, producer/sound designer Shade Cobain, and DJ Huggy, are the creators of Rhyme Calisthenics. Rhyme Cal is a highly regarded MC Competition that showcases and develops local MC's. For those in the Pittsburgh area, you can see Armstead Brown and Shade Cobain as part of the live band, Hambone Jenkins, as well as many of Pittsburgh's other great artists at the Shadow Lounge every Tuesday for the Human Nature Open Mic, hosted by Yah Lioness.
