After what feels like an eternity of push-backs in an industry that’s fallen victim to bubble gum lyrics and superfluous dance fads to match, Brisco, the self-proclaimed “Opa Locka Goon” finally takes center stage with “On the Wall”, the lead single off Brisco‘s highly anticipated debut album, Street Medicine. With his gritty flow, “On the Wall” finds the Dade County MC paying homage to a seductress over Jovii Hendrix‘s cinematic-like production, a certified club-banger while Lil Wayne assists with an infectious chorus.
Florida has got the Hip-Hop game on lock and Miami is now breeding rhyme stars. With unrelenting spins dominating the airwaves, MCs out of the sunshine state are demanding respect and showing no signs of letting up that reign. Helping to fuel that fire is Brisco, Poe Boy Music Group’s newest recruit and one of MIA’s best-kept secrets up until now. With his national debut Street Medicine on deck for this summer, the game is about to be reintroduced to thought provoking lyricism that moves the mind matched with an undeniable swag and a flow that the game has been missing.
Representing Opa-Locka, one of the most violent cities in America tucked away in Miami-Dade County, Brisco plans to overhaul the rap game with his Street Medicine. A well-rounded lyricist who covers all aspects, “Dade County’s Young Don” spits on many of society’s ills as well as overcoming adversity and struggle. Losing his mother and brother before turning 13 and his father several years later as well, the 27-year old has a lot of real life experiences to draw from and infuses his never ending will to survive in his music.
Brisco declares of his debut, “My philosophy is the game has been sick since Tupac Shakur died so I’m like the medicine, the antidote since Pac. I knew I couldn’t sound like Pac but I actually incorporated a lot of his formula into doing what I do. The politics, the streets side, and my gooning (thug side). I knew I was a smart individual because I was good in school and then when it comes to the part of everything I’ve been through with my trials, I go hard on that too. I express pain like Pac. I got a song called “R.I. 3″ on my album dedicated to my mom, dad and brother. I talk about losing them and how it has affected me and when you hear it, the music is going to speak for itself.”
Brisco has been on the grind since 2001 and has racked up countless mixtapes under his belt, some prominent ghostwriting on his resume and a few standout cameos on projects by Birdman, Rick Ross, DJ Khaled and Flo Rida. Brisco says that steel sharpens steel so after sparring with some of the best he declares that his time is now. “I’ve been grinding and waiting for so long it’s like now I’m set. It’s like being a prisoner locked up in jail and you’re waiting to come home for so long but you’ve already packed. So I’ve been packed and ready to come out. I just do me and I know I’m the best. When I get in the ring with those guys, ring being the booth, I get in with them and it’s over. I bite with them and if I’m not better than them, I’m right on their heels. Me being the competitive person that I am, I think I’m better. I feel like I can’t be beat and I don’t see them. I don’t care who it is. Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Flo Rida, who ever and they my family. But it’s like when I fight my big brother or little brother, I don’t care. When it’s time to win, you got to win.”
Brisco says, “I’m a good storyteller but I want to be known as being versatile and have you never knowing what I’m going to say next but you definitely know it’s going to be hot.” The man born as British Mitchell also declares that Street Medicine will be timeless, undeniable and will inspire his listeners. Declaring himself a good person who’s just confessing, Brisco exclaims, “This is the opportunity of a lifetime right here. I’ve been working on this album all my life and I want to leave an overall mark for the people to know I had a message. Genuine music can’t be denied and you can feel my hunger in every song. It’s just worldly and anybody can relate. It’s dealing with everyday situations, trials and tribulations. It’s the antidote.”
