THOUGHTS SKILLUSTRATED LP OUT NOW!
“This is probably one of the more influential people in hip-hop” – Kevin Garnett
Brownsville, Brooklyn (also known as “tha ville”) has produced some of the most legendary and revered figures in hip-hop. Three of them got together and made “Brownsville Legends” the new video / single from Thirstin Howl The 3rd featuring Smoothe Da Hustler and DV Alias Khrist. There’s a lot of gems dropped throughout the joint about historic spots in the neighborhood and the culture that you won’t hear anywhere else. The video (which was edited by Thirstin Howl as well) was shot on location on Livonia Ave as well as the Livonia train station.

Produced by Matteo Getz (Heltah Skeltah, Sadat X) this track appears on the newly released Thoughts Skillustrated album. The project is the pinnacle for Thirstin Howl’s unorthodox rhymes paired with boom-bap production with a litany of high-caliber guest features.
Some of those features were released in video form previously including “Whatever Mami Want” featuring Hurricane. G (R.I.P) and Classic as well as “Thirsty Giant Mastas” featuring A.G. (of DITC) and Masta Ace.
