Denver rapper Tommy Brown's latest release, Covered in Gold 24k, has caught ears in the city and outside it since its release this summer. The first video from it premiered on The Source, and we're happy to debut the latest visual today on Backbeat. Watch below.
"Intro Music" is the record's first track, it was produced by Larry OG, and the relatively gritty clip you see here was directed by Jeremy Pape of Welcome to the D.O.P.E. Game, the local hip-hop-centric collective to which Tommy Brown also belongs.
Brown is keeping busy this fall. He'll perform in Atlanta in early October during the A3C festival alongside Juvenile, Kool Keith, Bun B, Talib Kweli and hundreds more.
He'll also open for Big KRIT here in Denver at Cervantes' Masterpiece Ballroom on October 21 alongside fellow D.O.P.E. Game artist Hustle Man.
