Boog Brown “Dope Girl Magic pt.2” Featuring Invincible & StaHHr
Digging in the digital crates, we found this hip-hop gem by Boog Brown, “Dope Girl Magic”. The title makes a true statement at bout this Atlanta based female emcee. The track, based on clever samples from the 1975 hit “Magic” by rock group Pilot, is classic hip-hop production. So musical, so new-school hip-hop; eighth-note chops with splashes of the original vocals at the transitions. Organic drums, nice cuts on the hook, this is a super-dope track produced by Illastrate! Boog Brown lays down some fluid lyrics on a track that most definitely, got her open. The delivery, rhymes and voice-tone on this track showcase the best of hip-hop skills and music.
Boog Brown and Stahhr are some of the best hip-hop talent coming out of Atlanta currently. Stahhr has a flare for good hooks on her beats and expansive lyrics in the form of ample similes and cultural allusions. Boog Brown has smooth beats with succinct lyricism that flows, even better than Stahhr. If you want a good intro to new Atlanta hip-hop check out this single, then pick up their other albums, money well spent. Boog Brown originally from Detroit, is a seasoned female emcee holding down an iconic underground status. You’ll want to follow her and keep track of her music.

After moving from Detroit to Atlanta in 2007, she found herself without a job , a car or even a mattress to sleep on. But nothing feeds the soul of a true Detroiter like adversity. Determined to make her unique voice heard, Brown donned her work clothes, put pen to paper, Chuck Taylors to the pavement and started to grind. The message of her music was simple and the purpose, pure: Be yourself. Grind hard. Be better. Get paid.
