Before I sent the original ATCQ “Scenario” to Unkut.com, I was thinking about how great LONS was back in the day. I consider their first and 2nd albums to both be classics, and contained performances from one of my favorite MC’s of all time, Charlie Brown. Now, if the original “Scenario” can be tracked down, then someone needs to track down Charlie. The man doesn’t even have a Wikipedia page! His ish isn’t even linked off the LONS page! What is going on?
Of all the “Where Are They Now?” type articles, blogs and songs that float around the internet, I would have to say I am most interested in Charlie Brown. You know he has some interesting stuff to say about Busta and the history of LONS. Hell, I want to know what he has been up to. Everyone and their mom want to make a comeback nowadays, why can’t Charlie? He always had one of the dopest voices in hip-hop, high energy, and a dope flow. After his performance on that Funk Flex track he straight dropped off the map. Last I hear he was doing some type of jazz performance stuff with relatives (is this true or am I dreaming?)
Anyway, if anyone has any knowledge of his whereabouts or could point me in the right direction, please hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org. I have no interest in doing an interview with a majority of rappers that are currently active, but this is one I would kill to get.
Also: Brian and I played the original “Scenario” in March on the 12th episode of the 20/20Proof Podcast. Check the archives and subscribe.
