Brown Town Looters
The Brown Town Looters are an East Los Angeles based group that has
been making noise in the Hip-Hop community since the early nineties. The group
made appearances on Greenside Record's original Latino Compilation titled
Definition of Brown with the song "Noizy Minorityz" and "Live and Learn" on
Defintion of Brown part 2. More recently they were featured on The Ollin Project
with their street anthem "Tha Strong Survive", a song dedicated to the survival
of the fittest. With past ads in The Source magazine and their underground hit
single "Dope House in the Ghetto" in 1992. Their underground flavor and success
allowed the group to reach the top of the charts and went on tour to Japan.
Following management deals gone bad, and a breakup of the group, the Brown Town
Looters went back to the studio and recorded their latest self-titled album
"Brown Town Looters". The album was licensed to Big Latin Entertainment and is
being distributed by Universal Music and Video distributions. This means that
the record has been released on a nation-wide scale, and should be available at
all major retail outlets.
album is a perfect blend of Latin Hip-Hop. It is a double CD which features one disc as an English version, and a second disc
as an all Spanish record with the group going by their Spanish pseudonym of Pueblo Cafe (Brown Town). The music production
is tight from beginning to end with DJ Clearwater creating about 80 percent of the beats. Hard hitting bass will be a welcome for
all those that want something when cruising down the Boulevard. The lyrics in the first disc are a blend of English with a few
verses in Spanish. Rapper Brown Huero from East Los Angeles is the newest member of the Brown Town Looters, with his
vocal delivery helping complement the raspy style of original Brown Town member Big Citric.
Among my favorite tracks are "Tactic Krimes", "Major Eruption", "Worldwide Mission", and the hilarious track "Livin it up".
The Spanish disc contains the same beats and concepts of their English counterparts, but the language is the only thing that
differentiates them from each other. The entire album is excellent with only two tracks which
I couldn't vibe off of, but they are easily skipped over. Don't let the CD's $18 price tag fool you,
it' a double CD of quality music and is worth every cent. The album is not a hardcore gangster album, rather,
it's an underground sound that is brewing in the streets of Los Angeles and is primed to erupt on a national level.
