New Joint: "Back At The Ranch" - Mobetta feat. Jean Grae (Produced By DJ Scratch)
As a Jazz musician breaking out into the realm of hip hop, here comes Maurice "Mobetta" Brown with his brand new single. "Back At The Ranch" features female emcee Jean Grae over some production from DJ Scratch.
Here are some excerpts from the official press release to help you get to know Mobetta:
You have heard Grammy Award-winning trumpet player Maurice “Mobetta” Brown before. After all, he’s appeared on LP’s from Santigold, Ski Beatz, Prodigy (of Mobb Deep), Talib Kweli, Cee-Lo, Diddy, Musiq Soulchild and countless others; but you heard his trumpet and not his voice.
Fresh off of winning his very first Grammy with Tedeschi Trucks Band for Best Blues Album of the Year in 2012 (Maurice was the horn arranger for the 11-piece ensemble), Mobetta is prepping his latest release, "Maurice vs Mobetta", or, rather, Maurice’s Jazz side versus his Hip-Hop persona.
"Maurice vs Mobetta" features appearances from Talib Kweli, Consequence, Prodigy, Jean Grae and production from Fyre Dept, DJ Scratch and Maurice himself and its a mere sampling of what’s in-store on "Maurice vs Mobetta"; as there is more in store for this dynamic young trumpet player-arranger-producer.
