Jahah - Always Remember Edison

Tomorrow marks the one year anniversary of my big brother Edison Tyrone Brown's death. There's not a week that goes by that I do not think of him and wish he was still here. His absence still seems surreal. I can't believe he's gone.

On a brighter note, I wrote a song to honor him entitled "Always Remember Edison". This record is on my latest album Nostalgia BLACK and is the final track I recorded.

I miss you bro! RIP Edison Tyrone Brown

Jahah "Soul Music" x Breaking Artist (UK)


Big up to http://breakingartists.co.uk/ for supporting and providing your boy with a little UK love! 

It's amazing how much more the good folks over in Europe appreciate soul music. They (Europeans) get behind artists and musicians that can really sing and play instruments. They appreciate good music that comes from the soul and isn't necessarily all about money, cars, and hoes. I'm not saying that all Europeans vibe to the same beat or style of music but from what I can see and tell (from touring oversea's), a lot of people on this side of the globe have a fever for traditional black soul.

Anyhow, the above is all subjective and for all intensive purposes...my own selfish opinion. It is what it ya'll. I realize that we (the people) don't have any control over the images and sounds that ultimately become national (or global) phenomenons.  Dead Prez what's proclaimed: It's Bigger Than Hip Hop! Ya' damn right! IT's bigger than us all...

One love to Break Artists in the UK!

Spread Love!!!

Jahah x SOULTRACKS

It's always nice to receive a review from a reputable source that actually digs what I do musically. In this particular case, Soul Tracks is the source and they have provided me with a "First Look" on their website which is pretty cool (in my book).

I'm on Soul Tracks website quite often so it's an honor for me to take up some space on their website. I enjoy the work that they put out into the world and hope my name (and music) will be a main stay on the Soul Tracks website. The staff at Soul Tracks really supports artists and bands with great musicianship and creativity. That's rare in today's watered down music industry.

Anyhow, I'd like to point you to Soul Tracks to read the Jahah review and watch my new video "Soul Music".

Make sure you spread love today!

Soul Music (Official Music Video)



Growing up I was exposed to all kinds of music. My dad loves jazz and could care less if someone is actually singing over a bed of instrumentation. I believe it is the musicianship that he truly enjoys and I feel like my pops provided me with my musical foundation.

On the other hand my mother was (and still is) more into the Motown sound and the artists and groups of that time. To this day I can still recall her playing the Temptations and groups like The Delfonics over and over again. This was the kind of music my mother would play while cleaning the house every Saturday and ultimately it is this genre of music that inspires me in our contemporary times.

Soul music is what I truly feel and I my goal is to continue making music that is honest to me and provides the listen with real emotion. I don't ever want to create music that isn't me and doesn't not represent what I stand for. Don't get me wrong, I want to make money doing what I'm passionate about but I do not want to sell my soul for the almighty dollar. I'm about the music first!

With the above being said...today I present to you my new music video for my song "Soul Music"! This song is off of my recent release Nostalgia BLACK and can be found here on iTunes. 

In this video I feature my father, my mother, and a host of friends and family that have supported me throughout my life and musical journey. I'm proud of this song and the visuals that accompany it. This creation has taken me and the director Tony Reames a long time to fulfill. However, we completed our mission and I believe our time is now!

Lastly, if you like what you see and hear...please support me and my efforts by purchasing the song via iTunes. I'd love to give everything I do away but black music has become very disposable and we as independent artists work very hard to provide the world with positive vibes and good music.

No more marginal results! I thank you in advance and wish you all a very Happy New Year! 

Spread Love!

Jahah x Zimbabwe Circa 06'


I haven't posted anything in awhile...I guess I haven't been that inspired to do so. Sometimes I tend to take a break live, enjoy, and experience life so I have more important and motivating topics to write about.  

Today I was actually inspired by a friend named Alex who hails from Nigeria. We started talking about our flight(s) to Africa and how long it took us to get there. This conversation sparked up some old memories and I found some rare footage online of me and some local rappers from Bulawayo, Zimbabwe free-styling. 

I've never been that great at free-styling but I enjoy the craft and in the footage you'll see that we were clearly having fun. No competition or battle rhymes were displayed. More importantly, you will see that the culture of Hip-Hop has definitely spread throughout the world and is affecting lives globally.

Well, I just thought I'd share some old newness with my folk. Never give up on yourself or your dreams. Think Big!

Spread Love!

Happy Halloween



I recently produced a remake of "Freaks Come Out At Night" in the spirit of Halloween and for the short film "Welcome to the Bubs". 

Above is the lyric video for the song which features Trill Wither's (C-Note) and Tymm Hoffman. This song is just paying homage to the great hip hop faction Whodini who originally blessed us with "Freaks Come Out At Night". I hope you all enjoy the energy!

Have fun tonight and spread love!
