Caleb Brown, an 18-year-old MC born and raised in the Sherwood area of Baton Rouge, LA, found music as an outlet to express his anger about the violence and wrong-doings in his community. The youngest of five, Caleb introduction into music was gospel and hip-hop. He became huge fans of Aaliyah, Boosie BadAzz, Lil Wayne, 2Pac and Kanye West. Brown began rapping in the fourth grade, writing a song titled “New Orleans” that mimicked the flow of Lil Wayne. Throughout the next couple of years, the young MC adopted a number of rap names while uploading music to Datpiff & HotNewHipHop. However it wasn’t until high school, when Brown’s hoop dreams ended after he didn’t make the freshman basketball team that he started to take things seriously. He changed his moniker to Caleb Brown, which is his government name, and put all his energy into becoming a rapper, studying legends like Nas, Eminem, Wu-Tang Clan and Mystical. In 2014, Brown released his Fear and Empathy mixtapes, garnering a local fanbase. In 2016, Brown took a big leap forward with his All Dawgs Go To Heaven EP, a project he dedicated to Matthew Crutchfield, Ortez Williams Jr. and Jauan Saxton, his three close friends who passed away within the previous two years. Momentum continued through the summer of 2016 with his single “W$GT$,” which gained hundreds of thousands of plays and views on SoundCloud and YouTube. Since the release of the track, national outlets such as XXL, Pigeons & Planes, The Advocate and more have featured the dreadhead upstart. Now, Caleb Brown is currently working on his debut project All Dawgs Go To Heaven.
