Today Scion A/V and Fool’s Gold release a 4-track EP of new music from Detroit’s musically and stylistically trailblazing rap group, Bruiser Brigade. The release is available as a free download at

Formed by critically acclaimed microphone hero Danny Brown, the Bruiser Brigade (an MC collective featuring Brown, Dopehead, CHIP$, Chavis Chandler, TrplBlk Mandingo, Zelooperz and in-house producer SKYWLKR) skillfully mash gritty Detroit street narratives and absurd, tongue-twisting pop culture references over innovative, neck-snapping beats. Their debut tracks “Errrthang” and “Jooky” are a perfect introduction to the Bruiser vibe, with Danny and Dopehead slinging razor-sharp lines over SKYWLKR’s haunted house bass drums. Remixes by underground favorites Ryan Hemsworth and Lockah round out the release, with the two producers taking the tracks in wild, experimental directions. This debut EP proudly announces Bruiser Brigade’s arrival as the most exciting, unpredictable new crew in the game!

On Wednesday night in Brooklyn, the Bruisers will be celebrating with a free release party at The Paper Box (17 Meadow Street). The whole crew will be performing alongside Flatbush Zombies, Kitty Pryde and more. RSVP at
