Boog Brown “No Time” 2014

Produced by Illastrate

Working Class Music

“Boog Brown” aka “Boogie” is a Black Woman and multi-talented audio artist, based out of Detroit, MI.

Growing up, Boog often turned to poetry and prose as a therapeutic release. This coupled with a background that included singing in the church choir and playing classical violin, eventually led in college to her discovery of Hip Hop culture as a prime space to blend these affinities through rap music. Early on her Detroit roots benefitted her in offering access to producers and artists like Miz Korona, Marvwon, Big Tone, Ta’raach, 14KT, Dj Dez, Elzhi, and Invincible (Ill Weaver) to learn about cadence, song structure, and other aspects of production. Later, working with Grammy award-winning producers like FOCUS and Diamond D and rapping alongside legends like Wise Intelligent, Supastition, J-Live, Stahhr, longtime collaborators Working Class Music Group (blc Txt, Illastrate, J Haze, etc), endless features with Rapsody, Dillon, Sa-Roc, Stacy Epps, Ekundayo and more have kept her pen sharp and ready for any dimension of the genre.

Boog Brown’s albums consistently provide thought-provoking writing and perspective. From the release of her first label backed project titled “Brown Study” in 2010 (Apollo Brown/Mello Music Group), to her most recent offering, “Summer Daze” Vol 1. 2020 (Spittzwell/Detroit Digital), this emcee’s endurance and creativity is like fresh air in a polluted world.

(Go outside and Get It…)

(v) Dying to make this dream come true, Try not- Do

‘what has this music done for you?’ I’m often asked

Like I’m supposed to just relaaaax and 

Go and get a job I HATE- to make ends meet-Only time to eat and sleep?

Focus on them finer things and separate these dreams from reality

Actually at THIS age I guess I’m just too old to play This game

Look at that Lame shit.

Tryna infiltrate this space that I create from

Forgive me if the bass drum, brought me where I come from

Hoping I can make sommn’

Hoping that it touch someone

Something like a miracle

Sorry I ain’t hearin you through all that venom spewed

Same questions different interviews

Same lesson different intervals. 

Don’t want to be identical to none of “you”

Do what works for you, I will too

And In the interim, let the spirit burn em…

Cause we got no time to waste

We write these lines and pray

Then go outside and get it

Say you bout that life then live it…live it…live it

We got no time to waste 

We write these lines and pray

Then go outside and get it

Never underestimate the underdog, underneath it all is that work hard

And the gall to succeed and the balls to go deep and achieve

Never saw this life for me till it was all that I would dream

Then I placed it in my speech

Replaced the way I think

Drank it all even when it was too strong

Then I saw me with that roof gone cause that’s what I been on lately

I’m here to make green, especially for these babies

Hate me, I may not be yo’ cup of tea but respect me

Just let me do my thing and live free

Beyond the borders giving orders

This is Water meant to supplement, replenish 

This is the gift I’m in it until it’s finished 

Cause we got no time to waste

We write these lines and pray

Then go outside and get it

Say you bout that life then live it…live it…live it

We got no time to waste 

We write these lines and pray

Then go outside and get it

I see it so I say it, see how far I can take it

It’s related

Im Legacy, ain’t meant to beg for no basics

I’m elated- when I see my family wit them papers

And ‘they’ date us with hopes that maybe they can come and erase us

But ‘they’ faces is ever-changing

Desperate for the fame and

Wo(Men) sell their souls for some red on they soles

It get old to be out yelling

You could just be out peddling that dream

Then lean on em

Nothing come for free, homie

Want me just to coddle you? Never know who would follow.

Save ya problems for tomorrow and make this ya motto

Keep em listening and when you got they attention? 

Win

And when it’s time, gone and let the people in…

Cause we got no time to waste

We write these lines and pray

Then go outside and get it

Say you bout that life then live it…live it…live it

We got no time to waste 

We write these lines and pray

Then go outside and get it
