Brassmunk - Dark Sunrise

BrassMunk is a hip hop group formed in 1997 in Scarborough, Ontario. The group consists of musicians S-Roc, Clip, Agile and Reign.

Brassmunk released a number of independent singles in the late 1990s and early 2000s, and released their first EP, Dark Sunrise, in 2002 on 54th/Virgin Music Canada. The following year, Dark Sunrise was rereleased worldwide on Battleaxe Records as an LP, and included their previous independent releases. "Dark Sunrise" was nominated for Best Rap Recording at the 2004 Juno Awards. Funny thing is my little cuzin used to tell me about his cousin(sroc) who was going to put out a rap album and that the group was called Brassmunk. Little did I know my cousin was actually telling the truth. One day I was watching Rap City on Much Music (Canadian Tv) and up popped a Brassmunk video by the name of El Dorado. El Dorado is a single off Dark Sunrise and is one of the illest on the album. Later they came out with the video for Big which also blew my mind. After calling my cousin a lier he later brought me this album sighned by the whole crew. Anyways now that im done droppin the knowledge check out some more Canadian hip hop and grab this album.
