Combine one of the most gifted emcees with one of the most prolific producers, the result: Selective Hearing, the collaborative effort of Long Beach's legendary lyricist LMNO and Maryland producer Kev Brown. LMNO is a certified studio fiend recording multiple albums with several top-notch producers in the past 2 years. With 10 albums released in the past decade, Selective Hearing is yet another potential classic album to add to LMNO's impressive list of works as a solo artist and member of the Visionaries. Kev Brown produced over 75% of The Magnificent when he entered the scene as a producer for DJ Jazzy Jeff. Releasing the acclaimed Jay-Z remix album, The Brown Album, his debut solo album, I Do What I Do (Up Above Records), along with his production work with artists such as De La Soul, Marley Marl, Biz Markie, Visionaries, Raheem De Vaughn, and Eric Roberson earned Kev Brown the title as one of the "torchbearers" for the golden-era classic sound. Featured artists on Selective Hearing include Ariano, LD, Francesca, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Dudley Perkins, and Oh No the Disrupt.
