Product Details


A gritty 90's style album for those who grew up on Illmatic, Midnight Marauders, Only Built for Cuban Links, Moment of Truth, and Ready to Die. Behind The Scale shows the other side of what some are glamorizing about street life and drug trade. This is unfiltered, real sh*t on tape. Some of the stories are inensly personal and Sean second-guessed including them, but if it ain't raw it ain't real. Behind The Scale is about change, transition and growing up..

Comment: I almost gave this a 3 because Sean sounds like a 50 cent wannabe which isn't good! Thankfully, KB saves the day with his tight production!

Comment: saw this cd in the store and knew nothing about it so I looked at the reviews it was getting and bought it. very very nice album, production and lyrics. the album has a cohesiveness thats not very common in the day of 12 tracks with 11 producers.

Comment: The beats And rough rhymes go together so nicely. This is a premium masterpiece. Esp "Pour Out Liquor." There's not one song about pouring out liquor that sounds this artistic.

Comment: Great album, been listening all month. Beats are dope. Btw, who are the haters who aren't feelin this? Keep it moving. This is Kev Brown production - if you're into Hip-Hop then you already know what that means - either it's for you or it's not. It's cool if you aren't feeling it but a lot of are and I for one do. If you think Hip-Hop sucks, that's fine, maybe take a break and expand yourself, listen to electronic or whatever, we all get burnt out, but in the end for those like myself who love dirty beats with static and clever delivery, the album works.

Comment: I like Behind The Scale, I give him a 42 but I can't dance to it! - come on people, either the shit bangs or it doesn't. Either you feel it or you don't. Quit over thinking things. Kev Brown is one of the illest of our time at making dirty underground beats. Sean Born delivers with propa candence and a dope voice. Nuff said.

Comment: In vein of Mobb Deep's The Infamous, and even more recently, Roc Marciano's Marcberg album. To me personally, Sean painted a picture of PG County/Queen Anne/Maryland vividly much in the same way Mobb did about Queensbridge on The Infamous. To say that this is just "crack rap" or "trap rap" is false. Sean paints his reality and the inner workings of it. The beats, the rhymes, the cohesiveness, the honesty, 5 star album....period.

Comment: If you appreciate where Sean Born comes from (90s hip hop) you will appreciate the album. Kev Brown does his part to make sure it's not just a 90s reboot. Sean Born is just a real dude - not full of false braggadacio and bs. Worth the pick up.

Comment: I agree with Sickness7. To each his own though. My personal taste looks for lyrics I can feed off of mentally. I'm so tired off hearing about drugs and violence. Man that gets old and it's not original. What other things could an adult talk about? There's gotta be more! I appreciate where DTMD is coming from though cause the message in the music means so much.

Comment: For the record, yall are liking some WEAK fucking albums these days. I like this album, but yall are giving 5 stars to some WEAK bullshit! Their can't really be that many ppl out there eating out of the bloggers hands, giving some trash like Gangrene and yU 5 stars. Lets be honest, there's MAYBE one album a year these days thats truly 5 star, that isn't a fucking overrated yawn fest. Alright Im off the podium

Comment: Great album - a throwback style done right as rain. RY said crack rap is old but when it's done like this it never gets old to me - like a good novel on a familiar subject. Good ol braggadocio and gutta verses. Maybe Kev Brown's best work imo.
