Brotherman - Cloud Clears
With a background in poetry Brotherman has always been known for his thoughtful lyrics, married with the warmth and clarity in his voice. His eye for detail and acute awareness of his surroundings make him a contemporary social commentator with a refreshing outlook.
Well travelled in his youth, he spent his time watching the social comings and goings of the people who surrounded him as well as taking in the music and culture he was exposed to. The grittiness of Brotherman’s teenage life in Hackney combined with his easy going caribbean upbringing, create his unique sound
Off the back of his critically acclaimed debut release ‘The Light / The Dark’ Brotherman was tipped for Overground success and has since been become known as a rapper’s rapper. A series of unfortunate events has held back and impacted subsequent releases, with ‘Huckleberry’ being a entree for two upcoming projects in 2019 which will push new boundaries for the artist.
‘Cloud Clears’ is an emotionally filling song that was written in the wake of a year long stay in prison. It comments on a youth spent trying to keep out of the street violence happening in London as well as a more objective view gained from incarceration. Inspired by true wordsmiths like Talib Kweli and Mos Def, ‘Cloud Clears’ tries to act as a warning as much as it tells a tale.
‘Cloud Clears’ is one of five tracks from the ‘Huckleberry’ EP.
“Brotherman has always stood out for me. His voice is original, his flows are sick and I like his diction. Uniqueness in this rap game is paramount and he has it by the bucketload. On this EP he blends seamlessly with some sick crisp production from GG Peney. Fiercely refreshing and a breath of fresh air from the usual mind numbing copycat rap music. This project is distinctively dope.” Daddy Skitz
“Insightful bars, subtle cadence, heartfelt song-writing. This brother really is the man!” Essa (formerly known as Yungun)
“Huckleberry dropping you a dose of that dope socially woke hip-hop that you need for your mental health. Go get your fix.” Skinnyman
