Sean Brown's been Going Through It lately—and by “it,” I mean a frustrating cocktail of professional, social, romantic and financial strife. Rather than visiting a therapist (He is broke, after all.), he decided to step into the recording booth and pour his troubles into a fresh record. Over his own low-key, string-laced beat, the West Coast phenom and freestyle alum unburdens himself of his cares in verses as technically impressive as they are relatable. Futuristic, the indie buzzmaker who brought us No Way a few weeks back, contributes a fast-paced guest 16. Like what you're hearing? Then be sure to cop Sean's highly-anticipated Mascot 2 tape when it drops this Wednesday, the 22nd.
