26 April 2015: Loc2DaBrain - The Asylum EP

Brotha Lynch Hung / Siccmade fans should be familiar with the rap group Loc2DaBrain. Back in the 90's it was a coalition of Sacramento rappers (mostly from Garden Blocc) Brotha Lynch, Loki, Zigg Zagg, G-Macc, Mr. Doctor, DE, Hystables, Baby Reg, 8-Ball, Foe Loco, Dizz, Gangsta Kat, T-Tay, Beware, Big Dan, Big Q and Cedric Singleton. As far as I know the group has never released any project, but you could hear it for example on "No Face Killaz" compilation. It appears that in the last couple of years the team is slowly rebuilding its ranks. Some of the original members quit the crew (e.g T-Tay is now known as Surrenda and is doing Christian rap), but you'll definitely see a few of them. Loc2DaBrain is finally out with an official release - an EP album called "The Asylum". You can find it on iTunes. Visit the group on Facebook and Twitter. Tracklist: (show tracklist)
